5 Ways Professional Teeth Whitening Beats Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening
Do you have a special event coming up? Are you frustrated by the aged appearance of your teeth?
You don’t have to put up with it. Whitening your teeth can restore your once-shiny smile and give you the confidence you need to smile proudly, whether you’re taking wedding photos or interviewing for your dream job.
At Oak Family Dental, we offer professional in-office and take-home teeth whitening in Metairie, LA. Many patients have questions about the process, especially and what makes professional whitening better than the kits you can buy in the drug or grocery store, and we'd like to address those:
1. Professional whitening is customized to your needs.
Whether you are seeking same-day in-office results or a take-home teeth whitening kit, we can choose the product and strength that is right for you. Plus, the trays for your take-home kit are actually created from impressions of your own teeth.
2. You get better results in less time.
In-office teeth whitening produces results in about an hour, which is a great option if you need to see fast results! Even our take-home kits contain a higher concentration of the whitening ingredient and are designed to give you results in just a couple of weeks.
3. You’ll experience less sensitivity.
Professional products often contain an extra ingredient to help reduce the risk of sensitivity. We can also adjust the strength of the whitening ingredient to keep you comfortable. Plus, professional whitening protects your sensitive gum tissue. During an in-office whitening, we place a barrier gel so that the whitening product doesn’t come into contact with your gum tissue. When whitening at home, your customized trays will help keep product on your teeth, where it belongs.
4. Professional products are safer for your teeth.
Many over-the-counter products rely on harsh abrasives to create results. This can be hard on your enamel or restorative dentistry, like fillings and crowns. We can recommend a product that is appropriate for your unique needs and will be safe for your dentistry.
5. You have guidance from your Oak Family Dental dentist.
We’ll be here for you every step of the way. Any time you have a question or concern, just give us a call and you’ll have access to our professional knowledge.
