Are you unhappy with a dull or yellow smile? Do you want bright teeth that make you stand out? If so, you have probably considered whitening your teeth. But with so many products available claiming outstanding results, how do you know which one to choose? Your Erlanger KY dentist, Dr. Darlene Henry, is here to help. She compares professional teeth whitening treatment with store-bought whiteners and toothpastes below.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Store-Bought Whiteners

The main difference between professional whitening treatment and the toothpastes and strips that you can buy in stores is the power of the whitening agents used in each. The store-bought items are not able to match the power of the whiteners used in professional whitening treatment, and that fact tends to show in the results produced by both. While store-bought toothpastes and strips may lighten teeth a couple of shades, it may be difficult to notice the final results as they tend to be minimal changes. Professional whitening, on the other hand, can lighten teeth several shades in a shorter span of time (usually 2 weeks). The faster time frame and the more powerful whitening agents tend to show through when comparing the results of professional teeth whitening with those produced by store-bought whiteners.
