Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Other Popular Options

Patient Getting Teeth Whitening Procedure

Teeth whitening has fast become one of the most popular dental treatments.

While everyone wants to have a bright and beautiful smile, many people choose less expensive treatment options that are not as effective and may end up costing more in the long run. If you want to have whiter teeth, professional teeth whitening is the way to go.

You will not only have a brighter smile, but you are guaranteed to have a whiter smile when compared to other options that are often too good to be true.

Let’s look at the benefits of professional teeth whitening service over at-home and spa options.

Dental Office Teeth Whitening vs. At Home Options

Most of us have been there, staring at our teeth in the mirror and wishing for a whiter smile.

While having a regular brushing routine may have been your only hope in the past, there are now several whitening options.

At-home kits that are available include whitening strips, trays, lights, rinses, and brushes. These can be effective to a certain extent but can take much longer than a professional treatment and won’t be as effective.

Teeth whitening from a dental office can leave teeth up to eight shades whiter than at-home alternatives. At-home kits can take one to two hours per day over a series of days or weeks, and your teeth will typically only become three to six shades whiter.

Dental Office Teeth Whitening vs. Spa Options

While most people are aware that a professional whitening works better when compared to a DIY method, they may not realize a whitening from a dental office is also preferable over a spa treatment.

Many spas will use teeth-whitening products that are not certified by the ADA and FDA. These products do not use quality ingredients and can open you up to having potential side effects and post-treatment complications.

Furthermore, most spa whitening products contain about 10% less hydrogen peroxide, meaning they will not be as effective at whitening your teeth.

A spa worker also has no dental background or accreditation, creating a greater chance for issues with gum sensitivity, damage to soft tissue, and oral burns.
