Is In-Office Whitening Right For Me?

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. Anthony Hoffman
Is In-Office Whitening Right For Me?Treatment involving the whitening of teeth can safely and effectively be done at the dentist's office or just from home. Many teeth whitening products are readily available with varying efficacies in addressing tooth stains. You can rely on dental specialists for effective and safe treatment options. In-office whitening may be the superior solution for many reasons.

In-Home Teeth Whitening

There are many options you can use to whiten your teeth at home. Teeth whitening products contain bleach that breaks down the pigments on the tooth's surface. The agent reduces the size of the stains and makes them less conspicuous. Our dentist can provide take-home kits to use for whitening the teeth, but avoid the self-proclaimed do-it-yourself whitening products.

In-Office Teeth Whitening Process

In-office teeth whitening procedures utilize state-of-the-art techniques and tools to achieve effective and lasting results. Our whitening process uses stronger but carefully formulated bleaching agents to get rid of tooth stains. As a result, the dentist observes all the precautions to ensure no damage is done to tissue by the bleaching substance.

The agent is exposed to a specific range of light waves to speed up the process. You will get noticeable results by the end of the procedure.

Why is In-Office Whitening Better?

The treatment is tailored to whiten teeth depending on the extent of the discoloration. Customizing the bleaching agent is more accurate and leads to better outcomes. The in-office process is more effective than the over-the-counter options, which are a one-size-fits-all solution with ineffective and inconsistent results.

Our dental team will factor in your preferences when crafting the treatment process. If you need more whitening in certain areas, our dentist will formulate the agents to meet your needs.

Despite using stronger bleaching agents, the in-office procedure is safer than over-the-counter options. That's because the treatment is formulated by a dental specialist with the specialized skill that allows them to tweak the solution.

Specialists understand the precise gel quantities to add to the solution without damaging your teeth. As a result, an in-office treatment has virtually no risk of tooth sensitivity or gum inflammation.

Since it is so effective, an in-office whitening process is more affordable in the long run. It limits the number of treatments required to achieve satisfactory results. Contact our dental specialists for tailored whitening treatments today.
