Are over-the-counter teeth whitening kits effective?
When you hit the dental aisle at your favorite grocery store or pharmacy, you may be struck by all the different products that promise “professional” whitening results. From toothpaste to rinses to gels to strips, each product is accompanied by an image of gleaming white teeth.
The truth is that if you want to whiten your teeth, the safest, most reliable results won’t come from the drugstore. Our office can provide you with whitening products that are customized to fit your teeth and are available in a range of strengths so that you can get exactly the results you are looking for.
Both in-office and professional take-home kits contain a higher concentration of whitening ingredient than you can find in an over-the-counter kit, which means that you will get better results in a much shorter period of time. The customized trays prevent spillover, which reduces your risk of irritation to gum tissue. Plus, many professional products also include a desensitizing ingredient so that even people with sensitive teeth can comfortably achieve a whiter smile.
