With all the over-the-counter options in teeth whitening, you likely think it is fine to whiten your teeth at home. However, these products have their limits. You may not get the look you were going for. It is also possible to damage your enamel by using products you don’t fully understand how to use correctly. There are actually many reasons you should leave whitening up to us, the professionals. Here are four of them.
Whitening products can thin the enamel on your teeth. If you over use them or do not follow the directions, you could risk serious, irreversible damage to your teeth.
Professional teeth whitening in San Juan, PR, produces longer results than over-the-counter options. This is because dentists can use stronger and better products than what can be sold retail. Retail products are limited by legal requirements, so you are not getting full strength products, which means you aren’t getting full strength whitening.
Using an over-the-counter product can lead to issues with sensitivity. Because professional whitening is done by a skilled and trained dentist, you face fewer risks with this issue. Your dentist will know exactly what to do to avoid potential side effects.
With over-the-counter products, you have little control over how much it whitens. Your dentist in San Juan, PR, can completely control the whitening to give you the exact shade you desire. The dentist will also be able to apply the whitening agents more carefully and exactly than you can to ensure complete whitening with no spots or missed areas.
Whitening your teeth can really brighten your whole face. Because teeth are so prominent, having a beautiful smile is important. Don’t risk your smile or your dental health by trying to whiten your teeth at home. Instead, give us a call and schedule an appointment to have a professional handle your teeth whitening needs.
