Whether you have a big event coming up like a wedding or work event to attend, or if you have just been wanting to make your smile look that much better, then you may be thinking about getting your teeth professionally whitened. And although you can head to the store and buy some over-the-counter whitening strips, they aren’t going to get your teeth as white and bright as having them professionally whitened by Arcadia Dental Arts. So, why is professional whitening that much different? Let’s delve a little deeper.
One of the main reasons why professional whitening works better than over-the-counter whitening products is because it’s stronger. Whether you have your teeth whitened in-office or if you decide to use one of our at-home whitening kits, the concentration of dental bleach is a lot higher in ours than in over-the-counter products which means that your teeth will be visibly whiter.
If you’ve ever tried over-the-counter whitening strips or even whitening trays, then you know just how uncomfortable they can be— in fact, they often go up over the gumline which can cause irritation. When you come into Arcadia Dental Arts to have your teeth professionally whitened, we will create customized dental trays that will fit your mouth perfectly so that they are comfortable and cover what they’re supposed to— your teeth.
It Lasts Longer
Because our dental bleach and whitening products are a lot stronger than over-the-counter alternatives, our patients usually experience longer lasting results. By using a whitening toothpaste every day and drinking a lot of water after you have coffee or red wine, you can really extend the life of your whitening results.
