Over time, your teeth can become yellowed and stained leaving you feeling self-conscious about your smile. You might consider over the counter whitening products as your first solution, however, you should know that it won’t provide you with the results you want. At University Dental Group in Orlando, we offer an array of teeth whitening options including both in-office whitening and take-home whitening. Find out what the top benefit of professional teeth whitening are and give us a call to make an appointment for yourself.

Professional Whitening Gives You Thorough and Even Results

Unfortunately, over the counter products don’t do a very good job of providing beautiful teeth whitening results. Whether you are using whitening strips or a paste, you can never be sure if the whitening solution is evenly covering your teeth. It’s common to have results that provide you with random patches of whiteness, making your smile look spotty. With professional whitening, our dentist administers the whitening solution, ensuring your smile whitens evenly throughout. We use Zoom! Professional whitening treatment for our patients. Zoom! uses custom-made trays that fit your teeth exactly. The trays are then filled with the whitening solution and left in for the recommended time.

Professional Strength

If you have ever used over the counter whitening products, you might notice that after two weeks of use, your teeth are barely noticeably whiter. This is because the over the counter whitening solution does not have the same strength as professional whitening. Since professional whitening is administered by a doctor, they can legally give more bleach in the solution since they are monitoring the patient. This is why professional whitening can lighten your teeth up to seven shades while over the counter can whitening 3 shades at the most.

In addition, professional teeth whitening’s strength is so powerful it goes beneath the surface to remove underlying stains while over the counter products only whiten the surface of the teeth. This, therefore, provides better results that last longer.

Quick Treatment

If you have an upcoming event and don’t have the time to wait over two weeks for your take-home whitening to take effect, you can visit us for quick in-office visit to whiten your teeth up to 7 shades. During a visit as short as your lunch break, we can give you a Zoom! whitening treatment that allows you to leave our office with whiter teeth. Now you can pay us a quick visit before any major event coming up in your life!

Comfortable Whitening Treatment

Some patients experience severe tooth sensitivity following a tooth whitening treatment. This is usually when they use over the counter products incorrectly. When you get the tooth whitening solution on your gums, your tooth roots or you leave it on too long. This causes your teeth to become sensitive to hot, cold or sweets. This can be avoided with professional teeth whitening because your dentist is there to monitor your treatment to ensure it is being done correctly.

Pick Your Shade of White

Unlike over the counter whitening, professional whitening gives you the opportunity to pick the shade of teeth you want. Your dentist will help you pick the best shade to suit your smile and from there will choose the best whitening solution and time for how long the treatment is left on. This gives you a sense of confidence during your whitening treatment. You won’t end up with results that you don’t want because a professional is responsible for them. With over the counter products, there is no customizing your treatment, you only end up with the results that the box provides you with.

The Safest Option

One of the top benefits of professional whitening includes keeping your smile safe. It’s very easy to damage your enamel with over the counter whitening if you do not follow instructions, or if you buy an untrustworthy product off the internet. For example, charcoal whitening kits actually damage your enamel to remove stains. In order to protect your teeth and whitening them safely, our Orlando dentist recommends professional whitening at our dentist office. We ensure your smile is whitened safely, preventing any damage to your teeth, enamel, or gums from occurring. Don’t ruin your enamel for a white smile, visit our dentist.

Smile with Confidence

Stop hiding your smile in photos or in social gatherings. With a whiter smile, not only will you look younger, but you will feel better about yourself and therefore more confident. This can help you in your personal life and professional life. Increased confidence can help you perform better at work, help you feel more outgoing and make you excited to take pictures once again. Increasing your self-confidence will make you a happier person.

Long-Lasting Results

When you choose professional whitening from our Orlando cosmetic dentist, your results should last you for years. As long as you avoid the staining food and drinks you are used to or make a habit of brushing immediately afterward, your teeth whitening treatment is long-lasting. Over the counter whitening might last you a few months at most, costing you more money in the long run. It only makes sense to spend your time and money on professional whitening instead of over the counter.
