The Advantages of Professional Tooth Whitening

Smiling young woman on white background It is easier than ever now to have brilliant white teeth. Whitening toothpaste or mouthwash and tooth whitening kits are available at the grocery store and are fairly inexpensive. However, there are definite benefits to seeing your dentist for professional tooth whitening!

Why professional tooth whitening?

Here are 4 reasons why you should skip the toothpaste aisle at the grocery store and get professional tooth whitening:

1. Professional tooth whitening doesn’t take too much time – it can usually be done in less than an hour – and you’ll see results as soon as it’s done. At-home treatments can take months before you see results (if you can see any results at all), which isn’t much help if you are in a hurry for whiter teeth for a quickly approaching special occasion.

2. Your dentist is a tooth expert! He or she will know how to whiten your teeth safely – at-home kits may have chemicals that can make your gums and teeth painful and sensitive, but your dentist knows how to avoid any potential pain or problems.

3. Your dentist will use a whitening solution that is much stronger than anything you can get at the drug store, so your results will be very noticeable and very impressive.

4. Your dentist can answer any questions you may have and will be able to give you instructions on how to best take care of your newly whitened teeth.

If you would still rather whiten your teeth at home, you can have the best of both worlds, with at-home whitening treatments from Dr. Konig. There are different take-home options to choose from, so you can select the one that is right for you. You’ll get professional advice, expert instructions, and professional strength whitening solution to take home, for a brighter, whiter smile on your own time.

It may seem like getting a whitening product at the grocery store is the easiest way to get whiter teeth, but don’t leave it to chance! For results you can depend on, make a tooth whitening appointment at the Konig Center for Cosmetic and Comprehensive Dentistry in Houston, Texas. Call (713) 668-2289 today!
