Everyone desires and deserves a perfect smile. Having white teeth is one trait that comes with achieving that goal. Fortunately, there are several techniques that will whiten your teeth. Depending on your preference, we can offer either office treatments or take-home treatments so you can get the smile you want in a method that is convenient for you. Both methods are effective and will help in achieving your dream smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Receiving professional, in-office whitening treatment produces must faster results than home teeth whitening. Our patients like this technique because it is the safest and most effective form of tooth bleaching. Some forms of teeth whitening can cause gum and tooth sensitivity. With in-office whitening, sensitivity is more controllable due to thicker peroxide gels and the use of desensitizers. One disadvantage of professional teeth whitening is the price. It is more expensive than take-home trays and over-the-counter bleaching trays or whitening strips.
Home Teeth Whitening
At home teeth whitening include whitening rinses, whitening toothpaste, gel strips, and whitening trays. Home teeth whitening has the benefit of being cost-effective, especially compared to professional teeth whitening. Although it’s the cheaper route, you’ll notice slower results with home teeth whitening. Additionally, it may cause irritation of your gums and sensitivity of your teeth.
What’s Right for You?
You may want to consider professional, in-office whitening treatments if your teeth and gums aren’t in the best condition. At-home whiteners are easy to use and fairly inexpensive. But if your teeth or gums are sensitive, at-home whiteners may not be the best choice due to irritation. Time may also matter to you. Professional treatments are stronger than those in over-the-counter kits, so you get results faster. Our dentists are Hyde Park Dental can also use desensitizers and make sure that gums are protected from whitening agents.
