Why Teeth Whitening is Best Done at a Professional Office
It can be tempting to try to whiten your teeth at home with some of the many products that are available over the counter, but there is a lot to be said for getting your teeth whitened by a professional team. While it can be tempting to try to save money by doing it at home, there are several reasons why it is best to leave teeth whitening to the professionals, and some of them may surprise you.
The results really are dramatically different. When you have your teeth whitened at Lotus Family Dental, you will see a difference in the whiteness of your teeth that you simply cannot achieve at home, no matter how long you leave the whitening product on your teeth or how often you use it.
At-home teeth whitening products are not as strong as what is available at the dentist’s office. In order to get dramatic results, you need a product that is much stronger than what you can get over the counter. So let’s take a look at some of the reasons why teeth whitening is best done at a professional office, like Lotus Family Dental.
1. Professional Whitening Takes Less Than a Couple Hours
Why spend weeks or months whitening your teeth when you can achieve the same results in just one visit to the dentist? The in-office teeth whitening procedure only takes about an hour, and you will see dramatic results that will last for months.
Why? In-office teeth whitening uses a much stronger whitening agent than what is available over the counter. We also use a special light to activate the bleaching agent, not to mention the fact that you can’t get the same level of precision from at-home treatments.
2. In-Office Whitening Lasts Longer
Teeth become yellow from a number of things, including smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, and even just from our natural aging. While you can use at-home teeth whitening treatments to achieve temporary results, the effects will only last for a short period of time.
On the other hand, in-office teeth whitening can last for up to two years, and sometimes even longer. That’s because the bleaching agent used by our team at Lotus Family Dental is much stronger than what is available over the counter, so the results are much more dramatic and long-lasting.
3. You’ll Save Money in the Long Run
While in-office teeth whitening may seem like a more expensive option up front, it is actually more cost-effective in the long run. That’s because you will only need to have the treatment done once every two years, or even longer, whereas you will need to continue using at-home teeth whitening products on a regular basis to maintain the results. In-office teeth whitening is also a more effective treatment, so you will achieve better results in less time.
4. You’ll Get Professional Supervision
When you come in for an in-office teeth whitening treatment, you will be under the supervision of a professional team. This means that if there are any issues with the cosmetic treatment, such as sensitivity, our team will be able to address it immediately.
Risk of damage to your teeth is also much lower when you have the treatment done at a professional office, as our team will make sure that the whitening agent is only applied to your teeth and not your gums.
5. Tired of Touch-Ups?
If you are doing your own at-home teeth whitening, you will need to touch up your results on a regular basis to maintain the whiteness of your teeth. With in-office teeth whitening, you can achieve long-lasting results that will not require touch-ups for months, or even years.
