Teeth Whitening

Woman smiling at cosmetic dentist for professional teeth whitening in GreeleyIf you’re considering whitening your teeth, you may have questions about whether professional teeth whitening in West Greeley is worth it. 

While it may be tempting to drive to the grocery store and pick up an inexpensive at-home teeth whitening kit, you will always get better results at the dentist’s office. Professional teeth whitening is significantly more effective than store-bought teeth whitening treatments.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Greeley

When a dentist whitens your teeth professionally, you know that your whitening treatment is customized just for you. This means that the whitening gel will be the right strength for your mouth and that you can decide how many shades you want to whiten your teeth. You also know that the teeth whitening trays or in-office lasers will be the right size and a good fit for your smile. Professional teeth whitening at the dentist tends to last longer and create fewer tooth sensitivity issues than boxed kits. 

Drugstore Teeth Whitening

Unfortunately, when you whiten your teeth using a one-size-fits-all bleaching kit, you’re much more limited than when you visit the dentist. The whitening strips aren’t customized to be the right length or width for your teeth, which usually means your back teeth don’t get enough whitening gel and, therefore, will not match your front teeth. Additionally, you won’t have the option to control the strength of the whitening gel or to change the formula if you experience tooth sensitivity.

Before any dental treatment, it’s always important to consult your dentist for their professional opinion and recommended treatment options. This includes teeth whitening to remove stains and brighten teeth. Professional teeth whitening in Greeley, CO is the safest way to overcome dental discoloration and stains. 

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening 

Over-the-counter whitening systems are generic and often contain bleaching gels with lower potency, so they don’t provide comprehensive results. Also, users may not handle the bleaching gel and other whitening components safely, resulting in sensitivity, irritation, and even chemical burns in the mouth. Unlike professional teeth whitening, DIY whitening can be hit or miss with effectiveness and comfort. 

Professional Teeth Whitening 

Professional teeth whitening is safer than over-the-counter whitening systems. With professional teeth whitening, your dentist is highly skilled and trained to safely and adequately use clinical-strength bleaching agents. A dental professional can ensure your teeth whitening session is successful, comfortable, and free from tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. 

Professional teeth whitening is non-invasive and painless. Patients can even recline in the dental chair and enjoy their favorite movie while we brighten their teeth. Teeth whitening at our Greeley dental office takes about 90 minutes or less, and we always perform a thorough oral health exam to ensure it’s safe and viable for each patient.
