There are hundreds of products that claim to give you a whiter smile, yet most of them will not give you the result you want. While over the counter kits may cost less than an in-office procedure, it can take several kits and a few weeks to get noticeable results, whereas in-office treatments can yield instant results. The whitening service at Elk Grove Smile Center can give you a brighter, more attractive smile with just one visit to our office.
Benefits of In-Office Whitening
- Faster results – Most over the counter whitening gels and strips can take weeks to lighten the discoloration in your teeth, and may take months to give you your desired results. In-office whitening will lift stubborn stains in just one treatment so you can see instant results, making them perfect for a last minute rejuvenation before a special event.
- Better results – After years of drinking coffee, red wine, smoking, and eating dark foods, stains can seep deep into the enamel of your teeth making them difficult to lift. Most over the counter products won’t be able to remove these stains, yet the professional strength gels we use will penetrate deep into the enamel to whiten from the inside out.
- Less Sensitivity – Cheaper store bought products don’t come with custom trays that protect your gums from the powerful bleaching gel which can lead to gum irritation and sensitivity. The gel in these kits is also known to cause tooth sensitivity as well. We will take impressions of your teeth to create custom trays that keep the bleach on your teeth and away from your gum line.
- Less follow up – Since over the counter products do not whiten as well, you will have to continue treatments daily to get the results you want and then once a week for maintenance. With in-office whitening, you only need to come in a few times to get your desired results, but because the whitening gel is so powerful you won’t have to come back for maintenance very often.
Though whitening can be a great option for most people who want whiter teeth, there are some with more severe discoloration that won’t benefit from whitening alone.
