When to Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

Do you look in the mirror and wish that your teeth were brighter and whiter? Do you have stubborn discoloration that won’t improve no matter what products you use or how well you brush? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, you most certainly are not alone. While genetics do play a small part in the color of our teeth, the main factor responsible includes the elements that they are exposed to. From heavily colored foods, to nicotine and medications, our once pearly-whites can absorb color from a variety of places, and over time they can become stained and discolored.

Whiter teeth are more desirable

Extremely white teeth are considered to be a highly desirable physical attribute, and one that is flaunted by the rich, famous and successful in the media every day. A survey by statisticbrain.com reported that 96% of adults believe that a more attractive smile will make them more appealing to the opposite sex, while 74% think that it can improve their career progression.  

There are more whitening products on the market than ever before

With such strong connotations, it is probably unsurprising that teeth whitening is the single most popular cosmetic dental treatment in the world today- and dental manufacturers across the globe have taken advantage of this interest by creating an enormous range of products, each claiming to have outstanding whitening capabilities.

Although some of these toothpastes, mouthwashes, whitening lights and more can make some improvements to the color of your smile, the consistency and longevity of their results has been found to be somewhat variable. This often means that further applications of the treatment are required with increasing frequency. Other people have found that at-home teeth whitening treatments simply cannot deliver the shade of whiteness that they are hoping for.

Why choose professional teeth whitening?

With so many at-home treatments to choose from, many patients are put off from choosing professional whitening, largely due to the fact that it is more expensive than over the counter alternatives. However, time after time, in-office whitening has been proven to be a sound investment, consistently delivering a better shade of whiteness, more uniform and longer lasting results across the smile.

Part of the reason for this is the fact that professional whitening uses professional-grade bleaching compounds, which are stronger and produce better results than over the counter varieties. Such intense bleaching agents are not able to be sold over the counter, meaning that professional whitening is the only way to access this quality of treatment and benefit from the longer-lasting results that it offers.

The results of professional whitening are also more consistent across your smile, and this is largely due to the improved access that your dentist has to your teeth. Try as you might to give your teeth an even coverage of bleaching agent at home, we can guarantee that your trained and experienced dentist has a virtually unencumbered view of your mouth and the tools needed to perform a truly thorough whitening service.
