Why You Should Opt For Professional Teeth Whitening

You brush your teeth, regularly floss and follow a healthy oral routine but can’t seem to get rid of that discoloration. You are not alone. According to the American Association of Orthodontics, 90% of people see teeth whitening treatment as a solution, with a global market share of $3.2 billion. There are numerous options available for teeth whitening at home, promising you guaranteed results. But here is why you should opt for professional teeth whitening.

It requires less time

One of the significant differences between at-home and professional teeth whitening is downtime. At-home teeth whitening kits require more time. It takes months to achieve the desired results, whereas office treatment can give faster results due to the high percentage of the bleaching solution present. Just a procedure lasting for few minutes can give you lasting results.

Avoids any unnecessary risk

At-home teeth whitening kits contain less whitening solution, and people are often tempted to leave them for a more extended period to get better results. However, leaving the gel for too long can lead to sensitivity and other less desirable aesthetic outcomes.  

In professional teeth whitening, the dentist takes preventive measures to protect gums and any other exposed area by covering it with a protective sheet and making sure nothing goes wrong by strictly monitoring the whole process.  

Brighter and better results

Perhaps the most significant difference between in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatment is due to the gel's intense concentration. The solution penetrates deep into the teeth and removes discoloration and stains from below the surface, giving you dramatic results instantly.


Who is best suited for professional teeth whitening?

American Dental Association advises that before undergoing teeth whitening treatment, you should talk to your dentists first. It may not be suitable for people with sensitive gums and artificial teeth. Your dentist will ensure that you are the ideal candidate for teeth whitening and then proceed with the treatment.
