Teeth whitening has become very popular in recent days. That said there are a few considerations that should be taken into account when deciding upon teeth whitening in-home vs. in-office. For example perhaps one of the biggest concerns with home whitening products is that they can cause excessive sensitivity in teeth. In some cases home kits can actually result in damage to gums. Equally of concern is poor fitting trays when purchasing whitening kits over-the-counter. Poor fitting trays are usually the reason for increased sensitivity and injured gums.
A Trained and Licensed Dental Care Provider
In short, when whitening solution is allowed to leak out it comes into contact with gums resulting in tissue damage. That is why choosing to have teeth whitening done in a dental office is a much smarter option today. As a note, it is best to avoid ever having teeth whitened in a salon. An untrained individual can end up causing serious damage to teeth and gums. Play it safe and seek out the assistance of a trained and licensed dental care provider when having teeth whitened. Teeth whitening performed by a dentist will always be safe and effective.
More Effective and Even Work Faster
A professional teeth-whitening procedure will actually end up saving you time, trouble and money in the short and long term. Whitening done in a dental office will be more effective and even work faster. It will protect sensitive gums far more than over-the-counter whitening products. Most importantly, the amount of brightness can be exactly controlled in a dental office setting. The dentist can adjust the shading and color in order to create a more natural appearance for the patient. With so much to offer it is clear to see why so many people turn to in-office tooth whitening as opposed to in-home whitening.
