If you’ve never had your teeth whitened and are considering having it done for the first time, we’re so excited for you. The color of your teeth might not be something you think about every day, but once you have it lifted to a bright, beautiful white, you’ll definitely notice the effects right away. We’ve noticed that people who have their teeth whitened are much more comfortable smiling, which means they have the freedom to express their joy every day. What could be better than that?
We understand that professional whitening, by definition, is an optional choice; which why it’s under the category of “cosmetic procedure.” And since there are countless over-the-counter whitening products now, you might think it’s a waste of money.
We’re going to explain how professional whitening is worth every penny; especially as opposed to store-bought options. The difference between the two options could literally be months of waiting for results.
Waiting for Results
If a whitening option is effective, then your smile will be bright right away, right? Well, how long is that process going to take? Did you know that some options can actually take up to 12 weeks to show results?
Yes! There are some whitening options out there that will take that long. Are you willing to wait three months to see if your teeth look whiter? It’s true that not every whitening option takes the same amount of time, but that in itself can be frustrating. What if you try one store-bought option for a few weeks and see no results? You’ve lost that time, and now you’ll be forced to try another option.
Why Is Professional Better?
OK, so store-bought options aren’t ideal. Let’s talk about why professional whitening is. Let’s start with the fact that with professional whitening, the process will be overseen by a medical professional with lots of training – me, your dentist! And since we’re professionals, we’re able to access much stronger bleaching products than the general public is able to access. Which means you can see significant, noticeable results after just a one session.
Some people complain about not wanting to go to a dental office over and over again just to have their teeth whitened. Not to worry! We actually have take-home options available now. We’ll give you the trays and the solution, and you apply the whitening agent at your own convenience, within the comfort of your own home.
Is It Really Worth It?
We’d say it is. But come talk to us more about it in person. We can go over the options and show you some results, as well as answering any questions you might have about the procedure.
