Professional vs. Over The Counter Teeth Whitening

If you are not sure if over the counter whitening or professional whitening is right for you, visit Marr Family Dentistry. Our team can explore your treatment options and recommend the best solution for you.

Why Can I Not Just Purchase An Whitening Kit That I Can Do At Home?

  • Uneven Results
    • Over the counter whitening products often require the patient to apply the whitening gel to the teeth or tray themselves. It is very difficult for a patient to apply the application evenly so that all of the teeth are the same shade of white. This will cause your teeth to become spotty in regards to the results where you will still see some areas with heavy shading of yellow and some spots of whiteness where you successfully put enough of the application on.
  • Safety Concerns
    • Each patient is different, and each patient also has their own tolerance for certain procedures, and that includes teeth whitening. The problem with over the counter products is that they cannot be tailored to your individual needs. So, if you do not apply the application properly and let’s say some of the application gets on your gums, it could very well cause damage to your gums. It may be better to come into our office and have your whitening done professionally.
