Cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular over the last three decades, and the technology to support it keeps getting better, which effectively means you get better options cheaper today. One great example is teeth whitening, which has been refined to a process that can provide absolutely stunning results when guided by a knowledgeable professional. If you’re considering cosmetic whitening, we’ll give you some reasons why it’s a great idea to let your dentist do the work instead of trying an over-the-counter option.
How Whitening Procedures Work
Like home procedures, professional teeth whitening procedures use peroxide exposure to whiten teeth. That’s about all they have in common, though. The method and length of exposure are very different. When you work with professionals, you are getting the benefit of their experience with real patients, which means your process will be guided much more closely for maximum results with minimal side effects. This makes it safer overall, and it also makes it more likely to give you the results you want.
Professional teeth whitening procedures vary, but the most effective ones today use a combination of lower exposure to peroxide and chromatic exposure to get the best results. This is a process not available through do it yourself options because of the level of technical expertise involved.
