Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional Teeth Whitening In Toronto, ON
Chances are, you’ve looked in the mirror on more than one occasion and thought to yourself, that you would like your teeth to look whiter. Most of us have, and while many at home teeth whitening options exist, having your teeth professionally whitened, gives the best results.
Over The Counter Whitening
While there are many tooth whitening options available for use over the counter or OTC, the whitening products that you receive from your dental office give better results, in a shorter time. OTC whitening products that you can find in the store have a very low concentration or strength. This allows them to be used for a longer period of time without causing damage to teeth. Due to the low concentration, it may also take longer before you can achieve the results you like.
In-Office or Take-Home Whitening
Compared to the OTC options, the whitening available from your dental office, will have a stronger concentration or strength. Due to this, some options require in-office use, under the supervision of a dental professional. Your dental office will also be able to provide you with take-home options that come in a higher concentration than you would find in the store.
Professional in-office whitening will require fewer visits to the dental office, to whiten your teeth to the desired result. Some in-office whitening options can achieve fantastic results in as little as one visit! These visits are usually only about an hour long. This option is best for patients who are looking for a result in a short period of time.
Professional take-home whitening will require a few applications of whitening gel, that you wear on your teeth in a whitening tray. These can be used in the comfort of your home or at work. Some teeth whitening options may require you to wear the whitening trays for as little as 30 minutes every day. Other options may require that you wear the tray for a few hours, up to eight hours. For options where long term wear is required, it is usually fine to wear the trays overnight, while you sleep. This option is best for patients who are not in a rush and who do not want to visit the dentist for multiple whitening appointments.
