Looking for a good reason to choose professional whitening over a store-bought kit? Here are four to get started with:
It’s More Cost Effective
Yes, the initial investment is a bit more than buying a whitening kit at the store. But considering you spend less time and need less product to whiten your teeth with a professional system, they’re actually more cost effective. Things like custom trays can be kept for years, and it’s fairly inexpensive to pick up refill tubes of gel at our office when you run out (which might only be once a year or two).
You See Better Results
It’s fairly common for professional whitening clients to see as many as 7-8 shades whiter teeth after their treatment. Commercial gels sold online or in stores may only improve your teeth by 2-4 shades, because they’re not as strong.
It Takes Less Time
Professional whitening gel is more concentrated, so it works quicker when it comes to erasing stains from your teeth. Even if commercial kits say they have the “same ingredients”, they aren’t as strong so it can take twice as long to see any improvement. If you’re wearing professional whitening trays, you’ll see a difference in just a few days (compared to a week or longer). Or if you’re getting in-house whitening, the results are immediate!
Maintenance is Simple
Touch-ups are easy. If you have custom trays, just apply gel at home for 3-4 sessions to re-vamp your smile’s brightness. Most people only need to touch up after their dental cleanings, but if you drink a lot of coffee or tea you can whiten more often.
