Home Remedies Vs. In Office Whitening: Which is Better?

Heavily marketed products such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening strips make great deals of money every year by using the idea of obtaining a brighter smile as their selling point. However, many people understand the frustrations of trying every idea for teeth whitening they can think of, with little success. If you’re wondering what else you can do to improve your smile, our office is happy to help. Here are a few differences between home teeth whitening remedies and our in-office methods, which may work better for you.

Generic Whitening Tactics

You’re not alone if you’re wondering why your whitening toothpaste seems not to affect your smile. Many companies take advantage of the fact that most people are deeply concerned about the quality of their smiles. As a result, these companies market their products with the promise of whitening their buyers’ teeth, leaving many frustrated with a lack of progress. This occurs in most instances because most store-bought toothpaste takes a generic approach to whitening teeth and doesn’t necessarily address the causes of teeth discoloration. For instance, some medical conditions can cause tooth discoloration, which toothpaste cannot always correct.

Faster Results

Another advantage of professional teeth whitening over trying to do it yourself is that it often yields results much faster. Many over-the-counter teeth whitening strategies can take several weeks to a few months to achieve noticeable results. Professional teeth whitening services can provide a noticeable difference in your smile much faster. In some cases, patients can see a visibly whiter smile after one session, which can save time and money in the process.

Fewer Teeth Sensitivity issues

A common side effect of many teeth whitening products is having sensitive teeth afterward. With professional teeth whitening services, your dental professional doesn’t use abrasive chemicals that can contribute to tooth sensitivity. Also, in-office teeth whitening ensures that you are professionally monitored and takes the guesswork out of wondering if you’ve been using products for too long or not long enough.
