When it comes to achieving a bright, white, healthy-looking smile these days, there are a lot of options. In the store, you’ve got whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, rinses, strips, and even trays. Some users of the internet even claim other methods such as strawberries or charcoal can help you achieve that perfect smile. However, there is a big difference between professional teeth whitening and over-the-counter options.
More thorough whitening
When it comes to black, stained teeth, there are often two kinds of problems: extrinsic and intrinsic staining. Extrinsic staining occurs in the enamel of the teeth, while internal staining occurs. Over the counter, products are intended to remove extrinsic staining, while professional treatment may remove extrinsic and intrinsic staining. Shop our whitening kit here
When you opt for professional teeth whitening, personalized trays are fabricated for your treatment, allowing them to fit in the mouth perfectly, resulting in irritation or discomfort. Over-the-counter options offer a one-size-doesn’t-fit-anyone tray which can often result in problems.
Although over the counter teeth whitening products have been shown to show results, it can often take weeks and even months to actually see anything. With professional teeth whitening, you can often experience 4-9 shades of brightening at just one appointment.
