Teeth Whitening: Professional Vs. OTC

whitesmilecloseupDo you find yourself itching to grab the whitening products you see on the shelves while you’re at the drugstore? Don’t worry, this is a natural response to exceptional advertising! However, it’s important that you remembers something very important: The results you can achieve with professional teeth whitening will always outperform over-the-counter (OTC) options – and will even protect your smile in the process. Let’s explore this idea, so you feel fully informed.

Why OTC Whitening Is A No-No

Choosing OTC teeth whitening is problematic for a variety of reasons. First, the formulas are not specifically chosen or carefully crafted for your smile needs. They are made for every single person in the store to pick them up and bring them home. As a result, they offer a weak formula that will not deliver dramatic results. Unfortunately, the ingredients may be quite hard on your teeth and gums, potentially leading to irritation and damage. Avoiding these problems is as easy as avoiding the OTC products.

Why Professional Whitening Is The Better Choice

When you visit us, we determine with an expert evaluation what your smile can handle, what it needs, and the best way to approach your goal of a whiter smile. As a result, you will receive a cosmetic treatment that works to remove stains, while protecting you from issues like dehydration or sensitive teeth. Even better – we may offer teeth whitening if it’s appropriate for you. If it isn’t, we will offer alternative routes to guide you toward a dazzling grin.
