The Benefits of Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can have a tremendous impact on a person's self-esteem. Being able to smile with confidence can help the way one carries themselves through social interactions. 

If you are considering a whitening treatment, you may be curious to learn more about professional at-home kits. Are they as effective as in-office treatments? 

Here's what you should know. 

Is Teeth Whitening Safe? 

You may have heard that teeth whitening treatments can make your teeth more sensitive or affect the enamel. While it's true that your teeth will feel a bit more sensitive after a whitening treatment, these procedures are generally safe. Of course, who performs the treatment and the quality of the product used can also influence how sensitive your teeth will feel. 

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are generally riskier as the bleaching agent concentration is not properly measured and controlled. 

But how about professional take-home kits? 

Well, that's another story. 

Benefits of Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening

One of the great things about a professional take-home whitening kit is that your Ruston dentist can help you find the best product for your needs. Moreover, they will examine your oral health first to make sure you can actually use the whitening treatment without any repercussions. 

But the benefits don't stop here. 

  • It's Convenient 

If your schedule is packed, and you simply don't have the time to waste at the dentist’s office for a whitening treatment, then these kits will make it easier for you to enhance your smile from the comfort of your home.

  • It's Safe

As we said, not all whitening kits are safe. Some of them can be too strong and actually damage your teeth, weakening the enamel. But, with a professional take-home kit, you can rest assured that you will get a quality product perfectly measured for your needs. 

  • Better Control Over the Process 

With professional teeth whitening products, you can choose how white you want your teeth to be. You can then stop the process when your smile gets to the shade you wanted. 

  • Better Results 

Professional take-home whitening kits offer results similar to the whitening done at the dentist’s office. Moreover, unlike OTC kits, you will be able to enjoy the results for a longer period. 

  • Custom-Made Trays 

The problem with OTC whitening kits is that the trays are either too big or too small, affecting your gums and teeth. In the case of professional take-home kits, the trays are customized to fit your teeth perfectly, thus offering better results while minimizing the risks of hurting your gums.
