Which Whitening Option Is Best for Me?

looking at smile in mirrorA dazzling white smile is on everyone’s wish list, and teeth whitening can help you achieve that with ease. It’s a great way to enhance your appearance and help you feel more self-assured. But should you opt for in-chair whitening or use a take-home kit? Consider the following to help you make your decision:

Want Results Today?

If you desire an immediate result, then in-chair teeth whitening might be the best option for you. The dentist uses powerful bleaching agents to remove stubborn or deep stains, leaving your teeth several shades lighter in just one appointment.

Prefer to Brighten Your Smile at Your Pace?

Rather spend an hour or two relaxing in the practice or make time at home? If you have a busy schedule and prefer to whiten your teeth in your own time, then a take-home teeth whitening kit is perfect for you. This option allows you to whiten your teeth gradually in the comfort of your home.

Other Advantages of In-Chair Whitening

Attention to detail

By having your teeth whitening done at a dental office, your session will be monitored to ensure everything goes smoothly. Dentists can also respond to any concerns you may have during the procedure, and adjust the bleaching agents if necessary. With a take-home kit, you have to be extra careful to avoid overuse or misuse of the bleaching agent, which could cause gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.

Professional advice

By getting this cosmetic service done at the practice, your dentist can provide advice on how to maintain your newfound white smile. However, with a take-home teeth whitening kit, you have to rely on yourself to maintain good oral hygiene, avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, and avoid overuse of the bleaching agent. Also, if you’re whitening at home in the evenings, you may not have access to professional advice if you need it (unless it’s an emergency) until the next day.
