Teeth whitening offers many benefits and is a great way to rejuvenate your smile. Professional treatments performed in your dentist’s office deliver the fastest and longest lasting results, however, convenient take-home whitening treatments are also available if you wish to achieve professional results at home on your own time. At Diamond Dental in Newtown, CT, Dr. Ratna Vedullapalli is your dentist for professional teeth whitening
Advantages and Benefits
Many options are available for whitening your teeth, both professionally through a dentist, and by over-the-counter products such as whitening strips, toothpastes, rinses, and gels. While convenient, these OTC products simply do not offer the same level of whitening that is possible with professional treatments from the dentist’s office. In addition to producing whiter and brighter teeth, professional treatments also deliver quicker results that are longer lasting.
Another difference between the two is how it can take several weeks or months to achieve noticeably whiter teeth with over-the-counter whitening treatments. In contrast, since the teeth whitening treatments available through your dentist contain a professional strength bleaching agent, it is possible to achieve a significantly whiter smile much quicker than with over-the-counter products. In fact, in-office teeth whitening treatments can whiten the teeth by several shades in a single one-hour treatment session. Achieving such fast results is simply not possible with over-the-counter whitening products.
An additional advantage of professional teeth whitening is that the results last longer than those achieved with over-the-counter products. The results of professional in-office teeth whitening treatments can last several years before another treatment session is needed, while the results of many over-the-counter whitening products might soon fade so that additional treatments are needed sooner rather than later.
One final benefit carried by the whitening treatments at our Newtown office is that they produce much more consistent results. With over-the-counter whitening products, it is possible to miss entire areas on the teeth. Conversely, in-office teeth whitening treatments allow dental professionals to carefully apply the whitening gel evenly across all teeth so that no spots are missed. Furthermore, during this procedure a protective gel can be applied to the gums or other sensitive areas to protect them from the bleaching agent, which can sometimes be harsh.
