Is Professional Teeth Whiting Better Than Using Home Kits?

Why Is Professional Teeth Whitening Better Than Using Home Kits?

The natural yellowing of the teeth over time, particularly if you drink coffee, sodas or smoke, is relatively natural. Even without these influences, teeth yellowing can happen and still be part of a healthy dental environment.

That said, yellow teeth aren’t considered to be as appealing as the natural whites of our enamels, and so for that reason, many people look to teeth whitening measures to preserve their best, warm smile.

There are a few options for achieving this. For some, home whitening kits are suitable, as they provide a basic treatment with a step-by-step process that requires little dental knowledge or skill to produce an acceptable result.

However, those who wish for a longer-lasting, better and smarter treatment are always best served by having their teeth whitening done by professional cosmetic dentists.

In this post, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why professional teeth whitening is superior to using home kits.

  • Your safety is our top priority.

Ultimately, a dental expert will have years of extensive training and experience. This way, they can assess the health of your entire dental environment including your gums and general oral anatomy. This way, you may be recommended for recuperative treatments or to stop the progression of dental illnesses in their tracks. If you’re unaware of these, then whitening agents may aggravate any conditions you have.

  • A customized, personal treatment plan.

Home whitening kits are manufactured to appeal to as many people as possible. Dentists, on the other hand, are only concerned with your dental environment and the well-being of your teeth. This means they can customize the treatment based on the health of your enamel, the shade of your teeth, your sensitivities, and any prior dental work you’ve done. This leads to better, safer, longer-lasting results.

  • Cutting-edge teeth whitening treatment.

Dentists will use one of several methods to whiten your teeth. The most common is in-office bleaching. This involves a bleaching agent applied directly to the teeth, with a higher concentration than is found in over-the-counter kits. This provides faster and better results. It will also be performed in line with protecting your gums and other tissues as safety is paramount. Usually, this will take one or two sessions to complete.

Sometimes, custom-fitted whitening trays can be given for at-home use, including a professional cutting-edge whitening gel. You’ll apply the gel to the tray and wear them for several periods at home. This can give you a much better and longer-lasting result than you would find it any home kit. It’s possible that your dentist may combine both treatments, but this is up to the discretion of the professional at hand.
