Nothing looks better than a golden summer tan except maybe a brilliant white smile to accompany it. If you want to brighten your smile before summer vacation, it’s time to contact your cosmetic dentist to learn more about effective, predictable professional teeth whitening options. Most practices offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening solutions that deliver smiles up to ten shades brighter.
Benefits of Professional Whitening
If you want to brighten your teeth, don’t waste time and money on dubiously effective store bought teeth whitening. Instead, get the results you want with safe, effective professional teeth whitening services. Some of the benefits of professional whitening include:
- Predictable results up to ten shades brighter.
- Safer, doctor monitored treatment that avoids sensitivity and unintentional damage.
- Long lasting results with proper care after treatment.
Why Store Bought Whitening Kits Aren’t as Effective
Store bought whitening kits promise dramatically brighter smiles. However, these kits are typically unable to deliver the promised results. There are two main reasons these store bought teeth whitening kits don’t deliver the results they promise. The first reason is that strict health and safety regulations mean that only a very minimal amount of active whitening agent is provided in these whitening products. In addition to the ineffective dosage of whitener, store bought kits also use a one size fits all application tray. This means that the whitening agent is able to seep out of the tray and potentially damage soft tissue. It also means that neutralizing saliva can access the whitener and stop the reaction before it’s effective.
