The benefits of having whiter teeth are readily apparent to most people: your teeth look nicer, you have a brighter smile, and you’re more likely to get cast in commercials that require lots of smiling. Unfortunately many people are not yet convinced of the superiority of in-office whitening treatments. Read on to discover the top five reasons that whitening strips from the store are second best to in office whitening treatments from Lynn Dental Care.
- The Fastest Whitening Treatments are In-Office
Whereas at home whitening treatments can take weeks to reveal any noticeable results, in-office whitening treatments at Lynn Dental Care take as little as 45 minutes. Your teeth can become up to eight shades lighter in under an hour, a result impossible to achieve at home.
- Your Dentist Makes Your Teeth Whiter
Because of the chemical strength of the best whitening treatments, consumers cannot simply purchase the strongest whiteners off the shelf. The most intense treatments require professional application, which is why you’ll always see better results from treatments offered by your dentist than by over the counter whitening strips and gels.
- More Mess When You Whiten at Home
When we say the treatment will take under an hour, that includes cleanup. Imagine having no more messy gels and sticky strips to deal with. In our Dallas office, we’ll carefully apply the treatment and clean it up while you lay back and relax. When the hour is up you’ll see a bright new smile with no effort or mess to clean up.
- At-Home Whitening is Riskier for Sensitive Teeth
Many patients looking for a whiter smile are unaware of existing dental problems that can become incredibly painful when subjected to an at-home whitening treatment. While in-office treatments apply stronger whitening chemicals, they are also preceded by a thorough dental exam that will determine the potential for irritation and reduce any negative effects of teeth whitening on sensitive teeth. In-office whitening systems also use thicker gels that are far less likely to come into contact with gums, and desensitizing agents such as potassium nitrate and fluoride.
- Dentists Have Access to Professional Whitening Kits
The most effective professional whitening systems are not available over the counter. To have access to the top of the line whitening products, you must schedule an in-office whitening session with your dentist. Spend an hour with us and you’ll leave with teeth that look and feel brand new.
