Advantages of In-Office Teeth Whitening

There are many do-it-yourself dental whitening products on the market and it can be hard to resist the temptation to try and get a shining, white smile at home. This is something that is far better when left to dental professionals, however, and there are many advantages to in-office teeth whitening. Put down the DIY whitening strips and read on! 

Having your teeth whitening done in-office by a dental professional is the best way to achieve safe tooth whitening. The chemicals and products used in whitening are generally not something you should be using at home, and many times DIY kits leave people with tooth sensitivity or other problems that will lead to a costly, sometimes painful dentist visit to fix damage. 

In-office teeth whitening is made just for you, in consultation with your dental professional. He or she can take a look at exactly what needs to be done for your teeth instead of trying to use a one size fits all at-home kit. This means you are likely to see much better results, without causing unnecessary pain or damage to your teeth. 

You may also have some pre-existing dental health conditions that should be looked at before attempting whitening. Some dental work will not whiten with the rest of your teeth, which could lead to a spotty smile at home. Your dental professional can help determine what your options are when you consult for in-office teeth whitening. 

Much like you would not try to fix your own cavity at home, you should leave teeth whitening to the experienced professionals. Head into your dental office to find out how you can get the gorgeous, bright, and stain-free smile you deserve, in a safe way.
