Why Let A Dentist Whiten Your Teeth

Why Let A Dentist Whiten Your Teeth?

So you’ve decided that you want a whiter, brighter smile that you can show off with confidence, and you want it as soon as possible. If you’ve done a little bit of research into teeth whitening methods, you’ve probably found a bunch of at-home whitening products that claim to make your teeth noticeably whiter. However, the most effective and efficient way to get that perfectly white smile that you want is at your local dentist office.

How Effective Is At-Home Whitening?

The do-it-yourself teeth whitening methods that you can get at your local store are effective, but to a very small degree. If you’re hoping for a whiter, brighter smile in a couple of days, you’ll be pretty disappointed with that whitening toothpaste or at-home whitening tray set that you bought. The truth is, these products are designed to lift stains, but use ingredients that are not very strong since they need to be safe to use for everyone. The result is a very slow whitening process that will have you waiting weeks or months before you really notice a difference.

There are also products and at-home methods out there that claim to whiten your teeth, but really just erode a layer of your enamel to get rid of the shallow, surface level stains, while also making your teeth weaker and more sensitive.

The Risks Of Teeth Whitening Without A Trained Dentist

There are other methods out there besides your typical whitening toothpastes and trays, such as the mall kiosks where you have a stranger claiming that they can whiten your teeth in just a quick session. These self-proclaimed teeth whitening experts may use a stronger whitening treatment that is similar to the one that we use in our office.  While this solution can whiten your teeth, but if not applied properly, it can lead to serious damage of your gums and tissue in your mouth. In the hands of someone who is not a professional dentist, you are at a much higher risk of ending up with some not so spectacular results.

What Makes Professional Teeth Whitening Better?

When you choose to get your teeth whitened by your local dentist, you’re putting your trust in a professional that has gone through years of education and training to perfect their craft in order to provide you with safe and effective service.  At Family Tree Dental, Dr. Watson has helped countless patients get whiter smiles through the same procedure, so he has the experience to ensure that you get the same result. We ensure that during treatment, we protect your mouth with a special covering that will ensure that your gums and tissue are not affected, for a level of safety that you won’t get anywhere else

Compared to at-home treatment methods that take a long time to show results, you can get a whiter smile in about a one-hour office visit. We use a special, high-concentration peroxide gel that penetrates the enamel to lift even the deepest stains for a truly whiter smile.
