Why You Want to Have Your Teeth Professionally Whitened

Next time you are in the dental aisle at your local store you might be tempted to grab one of those at-home teeth whitening products, but you should save your money and choose to have your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist.

Discover why you should choose to use professional teeth whitening services offered by your dentist if you want to brighten and whiten your smile.

Evenly whiten all teeth in your mouth

Over-the-counter at-home teeth whitening products are extremely limited when it comes to how many teeth in your mouth can be whitened. The products that are powerful enough to whiten your teeth, like the whitening strips, often can only be successfully applied to your front teeth. This means that the front teeth look sparkly and new while the back teeth remain discolored.

Even the at-home teeth whitening products that you put into a tray can fail to whiten all the teeth in your mouth. The trays in these products are not customized to fit your mouth. When you go to whiten your teeth, the whitening agent used may not reach all your teeth or, if it does reach all your teeth, it may not be evenly applied to the teeth. After you are finished whitening your teeth with these products, you may notice large sections on your teeth that are still stained or discolored, or you may notice that your teeth have a spotty appearance as the whitening agent wasn’t evenly applied to all your teeth.

Professional teeth whitening services provided by your dentist can whiten all your teeth. These teeth whitening services can whiten all your teeth because your dentist has control over how the whitening agent is applied to your teeth. When whitening your teeth, your dentist will be able to make sure that all your teeth are not only coming into contact with the whitening agent used, but that they are exposed to the right amount of the whitening agent so they can be properly whitened.  

Powerful enough to whiten teeth without damaging them

The teeth whitening products you see on store shelves come in two categories: too weak to whiten or too strong. The products that are too weak are not able to remove stains and discoloration while the products that are too strong can damage your teeth and cause numerous health problems if they are accidently ingested. These problems don’t occur if you have your teeth professionally whitened.

Professional teeth whitening services offered by dentists are specifically formulated to be powerful enough to whiten and brighten your teeth without damaging them or causing too much tooth sensitivity.
