The Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is more common today than ever before. Both professional teeth whitening services as well as over-the-counter alternatives offer a quick and easy means to whitening your teeth.

Now, keep reading to learn more about the advantages of professional teeth whitening!

Dangers of DIY Teeth Whitening

When it comes to DIY teeth whitening, there are a number of issues that can arise. Since the whitening trays that come with these products are universally sized, many find that these trays don’t fit their teeth properly, which leads to obvious uneven lines where the trays didn’t fit. Further, many see uneven results due to inconsistent distribution of the product’s active ingredient.

Beyond cosmetics, the active ingredients in these over-the-counter products can create a number of oral health risks. For those with cracked or damaged teeth, these whitening products can get past the enamel and cause tooth aches. Overuse can also wear down your protective enamel. In some cases, it’s possible to see gum shrinking and gum infection from the use of DIY teeth whitening products.

Why you Should Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

When it comes to safe and effective teeth whitening, visiting your dentist is the obvious choice. At A Shop for Smiles, Dr. Hagstrom can facilitate your whitening treatment so that you minimize the risks that come with DIY products. Further, you lessen your chances for uneven or blotchy whitening when you pursue treatment under professional guidance. Ultimately, professional teeth whitening minimizes the risks that come with the treatment, while ensuring that you’ll be happy with your new and beautiful smile.
