You only get one chance to make a first impression, and one of the first things people notice is your smile. Many smiles can be enhanced simply by bleaching your teeth. However, over the counter tooth whitening products may fall short of providing the level of whitening that is needed.
How is professional tooth whitening better than using over the counter tooth whitening products?
Over the counter, at-home tooth whitening products contain ingredients that will whiten your teeth to make them brighter and whiter. While many of these kits do work, they will only work to a certain degree and can often take some time to see results. For some people, this method can be difficult to apply to the teeth. At Towler & Youngs Family Dentistry, we take impressions and fabricate a custom tray with a built-in reservoir to deliver the whitening product more efficiently. We DO NOT use laser type bleaching due to the onset of increased sensitivity at the time of application. We have found our method provides better results and less sensitivity over time.
Is tooth whitening safe?
Yes, modern tooth whitening procedures are extremely safe and cause no damage to your teeth when performed by a properly trained professional.
