The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Advantages of In-Office Dental Whitening

Every day, more and more people are discovering the benefits of teeth whitening procedures. This cosmetic dental procedure has become one of the most popular options to brighten your smile as well as help keep your teeth healthy. There are plenty of over-the-counter pharmacy products available at your local store, but they cannot offer you the same effective care and attention that you will receive from teeth whitening treatments by Dr. Acosta.

How Can Teeth Whitening Benefit You?

The process of teeth whitening involves removing stains and discolorations from the enamel of the tooth and restoring their color to a whiter sheen. There are various techniques available to choose from, including KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System, Opalescence Teeth Whitening, Zoom! Teeth Whitening, and Glo Science, all of which are available at Acosta Dental Arts.

During the treatments, your dentist will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel or similar teeth bleaching solution and expose it to your teeth for an extended period of time. Certain treatments are stronger than others and depending on each patient’s unique needs, your dentist can tell you what procedure is ideal for you.

Having yellowed, dull teeth can cause you to feel uncomfortable smiling or affect your confidence during a conversation. A professional teeth-whitening service can improve your whole demeanor and give you a bright and radiant smile!

In many cases, you can see results after just one session. Whitening treatments are perfect for patients who have developed discolorations or stains on their teeth from smoking, eating certain foods, or drinking liquids like coffee or red wine. However, to get ideal results, it may require more than one treatment.

Why Chose Professional Over At-Home Whitening?

While it’s true that do-it-yourself whitening options are often cheaper than professional treatments, they do not offer patients the same quality of whitening that can be achieved at your dentist’s office.

For starters, you are awarded the safety and security of being supervised by a dental professional. This way, you can be sure that you are getting the treatment that is ideal for you so you don’t have to run the risk of damaging your teeth. In addition, over-the-counter and even dentist-prescribed treatments administered at home usually contain a lower concentration of the bleaching agent. Plus, you’re likely to see results faster if you get professional whitening treatments versus doing it at home by yourself.

Another reason many patients decide to go with professional treatment is to ensure consistency with the lightening process. Many over-the-counter products are typically “one size fits all” – which, as we all know, does not fit everyone equally. This can mean strips or trays that are too small or too big and don’t coat each tooth evenly with the whitening solution. The result of this is typically uneven whitening. For example, the front of you teeth get an even coating but the backs of your teeth are left untreated.

The safety and security assured with professional treatments is worth it! Plus, you can see whiter teeth in as little as one treatment, and it doesn’t take up much time. You can go along with your day after your dentist appointment and you can rest assured that your teeth and gums are protected from unnecessary damage and you receive a nice, thorough whitening that is consistent throughout your whole mouth!

    My daughter’s wedding is coming up, and I would love to get my teeth whiter for the pictures. I like how you point out that professional teeth whitening is much more safe and effective than trying to do it on your own. Like you said, you also run the risk of damaging your teeth if you do an at-home treatment. Teeth are something that you don’t get two pairs of once you’re an adult, so it is important to take care of the ones you have!

    My wife was telling me that she wants to get her teeth whitened, and I was curious about how that can benefit you! It makes sense that a professional teeth whitening helps ensure consistency with the lightening process. It would be nice to see that all of her teeth are the same shade in the end.

    I’ve been considering whitening my teeth for a while. I assumed it would help my smile look better. I didn’t realize that professional whitening was effective enough to even remove smoking and coffee stains. That makes it seem like a great option in the future!

    Going to a dentist in order to get the best teeth whitening procedure that is ideal for you is great advice. Being sure to find the best way to get your teeth looking perfect would be very useful. Making sure to find a dentist who has the knowledge of different procedures and their uses as well as how your mouth and teeth react to things would probably be a great idea.

    Hey Dr.Acosta, Great Article!

    One thing I can say is that with professional teeth whitening dentist can use a higher amount of hydrogen peroxide thus getting you better results.
