If you are one of thousands of people in America who want a whiter smile, you might consider the teeth whitening products at the local drugstore. You may be tempted not only for the ease of obtaining these products, but because of their affordable prices. But don’t be fooled—when it comes to teeth whitening services, you truly do “get what you pay for.”
When to choose professional-grade products
While over-the-counter whitening products do work, the results are far less noticeable than professional-strength whitening products and services. This is because in order to sell these products, they need to be safe to use at home without the guidance of a medical professional. Essentially, this means that they cannot have a high concentration of bleaching agents that can cause patients who use them improperly to experience sensitivity or burning of the gum tissues. Professional-grade whitening products, however, are monitored for use by a medical professional and can be given at a higher concentration of active ingredients, especially for in-office power bleaching which is administered and monitored from start to finish by a dental professional. With our take-home whitening kits, patients are educated on how to use them properly to achieve results while reducing the risk of problems.
Why choose professional-grade products?
While many of the professional whitening options are initially more expensive than the over-the-counter choices, this doesn’t mean they are a waste of money. In fact, the cost of these treatments is extremely affordable when compared to how many over-the-counter products would be needed to achieve the same results. Our in-office power bleaching provides same-day whitening of up to eight shades whiter—which is untouchable compared to the products available at the local drugstores.
