If you are planning to whiten your teeth, the important first step is to settle upon a whitening method. It may seem like there are a lot of options, but they all use a peroxide-based whitening solution. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston we offer in-office whitening, and professional-strength whitening kits you can use at home.
The main difference between professional strength and commercial, over-the-counter products is in the strength of the bleaching solution and method of delivery. Professional strength is much stronger, surpassing anything you’ll find at the store.
Let’s look at the pros and cons of commercial versus professional teeth whitening.
Commercial Teeth Whitening Advantages
Generally less costly
Doesn’t require a trip to the dentist
May cause less tooth sensitive and pain
Commercial Teeth Whitening Disadvantages
Not as effective
Whitening appliances don’t protect gum tissue
Solution must be applied many times over a period of weeks
Professional Teeth Whitening Advantages
Same day results
Administered by a dental professional
Gum tissue is protected
