The reasons for wanting whiter teeth are virtually endless. Every event could call for pictures, and everyone wants their teeth to come out whiter in those pictures. But the options out there for teeth whitening seem endless. Should you go with whitening toothpaste, or should you take it a step further and get the strips? Do the strips really work, or should you get a professional whitening? We are here to explain to you exactly how teeth whitening works and why a professional whitening is worth it.
1. Minimize Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity is the most common side effect when whitening your teeth. Although whitening strips are supposedly safe in this area, most people misuse them by leaving them on for too long or using them too often. This can cause long-lasting tooth sensitivity. However, when you go with a professional whitening you can rest assured that it will be done properly and will absolutely minimize any tooth sensitivity.
2. Get Even Results
The problem with toothpastes and strips is that their application can be uneven. When the whitening solution is applied to your teeth, it begins to whiten. That means if the strips aren’t getting in the cracks of your teeth, or if the toothpaste is not touching all of your teeth in every spot for the same amount of time, then that means that the whitening will not be done evenly. Again, this can be completely avoided with professional whitening.
3. Enjoy Faster Results
Although whitening strips may work eventually. They have a lower concentration of whitening agent. In the dental office, you can enjoy results much faster, more evenly, and with less tooth sensitivity.
