The most common cosmetic dental procedure throughout the world is teeth whitening. The market is full of teeth whitening products that allow consumers to whiten their teeth at home. While this is very convenient and may seem cost-effective, it may not be the safest solution for brightening your teeth. Having your teeth whitened professionally ensures you get the maximum results with the safest products.
Disadvantages of Commercial Kits
Most stores have a wide selection of all types of teeth whitening kits available. Some of these kits are quite effective, while others may not provide the desired results. While many of these products are safe enough, some are not and could cause damage to your teeth. Whitening strips, though very affordable, do not coat your teeth with the whitening gel. This leads to uneven color. Additionally, if used on a regular basis, these strips can cause tooth sensitivity and may damage the tooth enamel. They can also cause sensitive spots to develop on the gums.
Whitening trays may look similar to those used in the dental office; however, the fact that they are one size means that they will not fit all mouths equally. Everyone’s smile structure is unique, so some users may get whitening gel on the gums. This could irritate the gums or cause sensitivity or damage.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
There are several benefits to having a professional whiten your teeth. To begin with, the professional has training and experience in the process. This means you can be assured that your teeth will be whitened and the risk of problems will be greatly reduced.
In-office teeth whitening can give you faster and more desirable results. Many people choose to have their teeth professionally whitened just before a big event, such as a wedding or class reunion. Your teeth can be shades brighter within minutes without compromising their health or damaging the gums.
When you get take-home whitening kits from your dental professional, you can also be assured that you will get satisfactory results. These take-home kits are safe and designed to fit your teeth. The whitening product is professional grade, so you can expect professional results. Each kit is given with specific instructions on how to use the kit safely.
