Why Over The Counter Solutions Don’t Work

When you buy a DIY kit at the grocery store, the materials are not custom-designed to fit your unique mouth, which allows for spillover of the whitening agent, instead of holding it where it needs to be. Not only will it not produce great results, it might cause damage to your gums and soft tissues in the process. Plus, the low-levels of bleaching that you can buy over the counter are never really going to get the job done, even if you could get the trays to stay put. A dentist is the only one qualified to deliver the results you need. Around here, we currently offer both in-office treatments (for patients looking for the fastest possible results) and take-home versions for patients who would rather do their whitening on their own schedule in the comfort of their own surroundings.

In-Office Whitening

We use Zoom! for our in-office treatment. Over only about an hour, you will undergo three 15-minute sessions along with exposure to a low-heat light. Some patients actually make it happen over their lunch break. This is a tried and true method for achieving a bright, white smile!

Take-Home Whitening

Our take-home version of a professional whitening treatment makes more sense for patients who prefer to complete their whitening around their own schedule. The take-home treatment will take a little more time to produce the same great results. But in the end, you will still see a noticeable improvement in the color of your smile. This is because of the strength of the whitening agent, and the fact that we will custom-build the trays to fit your one-of-a-kind smile. There is no broad and general approach with us. And because the agent will remain in place, you won’t have to worry about damaging your gums and soft tissue, like you would with those over-the-counter kits. Plus, with us directing the process, there is some built-in accountability.
