Reasons You Should Choose Professional Teeth Whitening
For many people, teeth whitening is an essential part of dental hygiene. Not only are white teeth attractive, they can reflect good dental health and maintenance. Some people take it so seriously that they whiten their teeth at home. Home teeth whitening can be less expensive and time consuming than visiting the dentist, however, professional teeth whitening utilizes superior methods and equipment to brighten your teeth. For these reasons and more, you should choose to have your dentist whiten your teeth.
Here are some of the top reasons to choose a dentist for teeth whitening:
Professional Whitening Lasts Longer
Unfortunately, home teeth whitening kits don’t provide long lasting effects. In fact, these products must be purchased and used several times before any visible effects are apparent. Once the products begin to work, at-home teeth whitening must be performed on a monthly or even weekly basis to maintain the effects. Conversely, dentists only use professional-grade teeth whitening products with high-quality ingredients. Therefore, your teeth will look and remain whiter, longer.
Professionals Use Safe Practices
Bleaching and whitening products (e.g. whitening strips or low-grade laser lights) can be harmful to the gums, causing irritation and pain (in some cases). Therefore, not everyone qualifies for whitening, especially with bleaching products. Dentists, however, perform an examination on each patient to ensure the products can be safely applied to his/her teeth. During this examination, the health of your teeth and gums will be checked and used to determine the safest whitening method. Moreover, the best professional teeth whitening Sherwood Park has to offer will include desensitizers, which means you won’t experience any or little sensitivity after the treatment.
Provides Even Whitening
Unlike professional whitening, at-home whitening kits provide a universal application instead of personalized application. Universal applications may not remove all stains or cover all the teeth, leading to uneven whitening. On the other hand, professional applications are customized to each patient, and dentists usually go the extra mile to ensure whitening results are even. Furthermore, with professional whitening, a whiter smile is achieved almost immediately. This means that your teeth can be whiter after one session, whereas it can take weeks or months to see results from at-home whitening kits.
