One of the most popular dental treatments patients are seeking out in today’s works is professional teeth whitening. It has never been more important to Americans to look their best, and that all starts with a sparkling white smile. If you have thought about teeth whitening but are not sure what the difference is between some over the counter options and receiving an in-office treatment, Dr. Rogel Carlos and the team at AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale would like to go into detail about why the whitening solutions they offer provide superior results than anything you can buy at your local drug store. If you are looking for an effective teeth cleaning treatment and are in the Scottsdale, AZ area, Dr. Rogel Carlos would love to work with you.
At AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale, you are offered both an in-office whitening treatment or a kit to take home and use. Both provide great results, while the at-home option will provide more gradual and gentle results. Either is a great option and provide better options than standard over the counter options. Here is why.
Comfort and Effectiveness
When you purchase a tooth whitening solution from your local store, you are buying a system that is called “one size fits all”. The mouthpiece is one that you will probably have to boil and then bit into to shape to your teeth. The problem is that this step is not greatly effective, and you will still most likely face issues with poor fit. And when the mouthpiece does not fit great, it makes it difficult for the whitening gel that you apply to the mouthpiece to evenly coat your teeth. This can often result in uneven results and parts of your teeth that maybe did not whiten at all.
When you buy whitening options from a local store, the chemicals you are purchasing will not be as potent as what you can get from an in-office whitening. This is probably satisfactory if you are looking for a slight whitening, but if you need drastic results, an over-the-counter option is not going to provide the whitening power you are seeking. Dentists are trained to work with stronger whitening agents so that you, in just a single session, walk away with drastically brighter teeth.
