We all wish our teeth were a little whiter. Between the coffee, the soda, the cigarettes, and every day wear and tear, our teeth lose their luster. It is up to us to restore that luster. How? Teeth Whitening!
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. DIY Teeth Whitening Products
Today, there are more teeth whitening options than ever before. Between the countless store-bought DIY products and dentists offering professional teeth whitening, you have a big decision to make. Do you go the DIY route to save a few dollars or do you entrust your not-so-pearly whites to your dentist?
The primary difference between store-bought products and professional teeth whitening is the level of peroxide, the active ingredient in teeth whiteners. Store-bought products tends to contain as much as 7% peroxide, while professional teeth whitening products contain 35-45% peroxide.
Additional differences also exist, including the way these whiteners are delivered. At Affinity Dental Associates in Catonsville, Maryland, teeth whitening is always performed by an experienced dental professional. We place a bite guard in your mouth so you can rest comfortably while your teeth are isolated and the gel is applied directly to your teeth.
You can eat or drink again as soon as the procedure is complete!
