Why Should I See My Dentist for Teeth Whitening

 In Dental Care

With so many teeth whitening products on TV and at the supermarket, it can feel overwhelming when you are trying to pick the right one. After all, they are all created equal…right?

Not necessarily so. In fact, we can guarantee far better results than anything available over the counter. And, here’s why. 

A Prescription Strength Teeth Whitening Gel

Just like any prescription would be, a store-bought whitening gel is not going to be as concentrated or strong as one that we offer. We know the precise needs of your teeth, and we can recommend a gel made from the appropriate ingredients and efficacy that will give you the assistance that you need. 

Store-bought gels can whiten teeth, but not nearly as fast or by as many shades. They are best for people with very minor staining or who want to prevent stain accumulation before it starts. 

Optimal Contact With Your Teeth Whitening

One-size-fits-all doesn’t always work out when it comes to whitening your teeth. Strips or stock trays are not made to conform to your mouth. This can cause them to skip over certain areas and leave some surfaces untouched.

A custom whitening tray will fit snugly against your teeth for optimal contact. Or, we will treat your teeth right in the office. Both of these options guarantee even results without patchy bleach patterns.

Identifying Other Factors At Play When Whitening Your Teeth

It could be that the cause of your tooth discoloration isn’t something that’s fixed with whitening. You may have a damaged nerve, cavity, or internal staining that occurred during tooth development.
We know the most effective way to address these situations and we can help you get the whitest smile in less time. Ask us which option is best for your smile! Schedule your appointment today at Lakeview Dental Arts.
