So how should you choose a treatment that can deliver the results you're looking for without harming your teeth and gums? Keep reading!
What's the difference between professional teeth whitening and store-bought whiteners?
A key difference is the concentration of bleaching agents used. Professional whitening treatments use stronger bleaching agents than what you'll find in over-the-counter products. That's because these bleaching agents can only be administered by a licensed dental professional. Store-bought whiteners are also more likely to cause irritation and gum soreness because they aren’t custom-fitted to your teeth.
Are professional teeth whitening treatments safe?
Professional teeth whitening treatments are safe when performed by a licensed dental professional who will carefully oversee your whitening session.
How long will whitening results last?
The results of a professional teeth whitening treatment can last for several months to a year, depending on your at-home care and the types of foods and drinks you consume. To help maintain whiter teeth, avoid smoking and cut back on coffee, tea, and red wine. You should also brush twice a day and floss daily and see us for regular checkups to maintain optimal results.
Who is a candidate for professional teeth whitening?
This treatment is ideal for patients who are looking for noticeable whitening results. It’s safe for most people, though pregnant women and young children should not undergo professional teeth whitening, and patients who have restorations such composite fillings, veneers, or crowns on their most noticeable teeth are unlikely to be candidates.
