Do Home Teeth Whitening Kits Work?

If you are dreaming of a white Christmas with a whiter smile, now is the time to start whitening. Imagine how much more confident you will feel in your family photos and at holiday parties with a brighter smile! At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we offer professional at-home whitening kits to achieve your ideal smile. If you are tired of buying tubes of whitening toothpaste and whitening strips without much improvement, consider giving yourself the year-round gift of a brighter smile.

The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

·        Enjoy Long-Lasting Results—Each patient’s results vary based upon their eating habits and oral cleaning regimen, but the average patient maintains their whitening results for about 2-3 years. The wonderful thing about our at-home option is that you can start your trays again whenever your teeth have lost the bright white gleam.

·        Minimize Chances of Side Effects—Most patients can undergo teeth whitening with minimal side effects when completed under the care of a dentist. The possible side effects of teeth whitening are root damage or teeth sensitivity. When you are whitening with a professional dentist, you will undergo a consultation and examination so we can determine how likely you are to experience any side effects. Also, your professional whitening kit will be customized to suit your needs specifically. There is no need to overdo it with whitening agents if you only need a few shades brighter to achieve your smile. If you are whitening on your own, you could be setting yourself up for discomfort from side effects.

·        Obtain a Whiter Smile by 5-7 Shades—With professional whitening, you can anticipate faster and better results. At-home whitening strips may utilize similar components to our whitening products, but they are not nearly as concentrated. Since the products are so weak, you will be using whitening strips for a long time to have any noticeable results. Even if your smile is brighter, you should not expect 5-7 shades with an off the shelf option. Whitening toothpaste will only be helpful at removing surface stains because it will not contain peroxide to reach the deeper staining. If your teeth have been stained for a while, you will need something stronger than a whitening toothpaste.

Whitening your smile can truly transform your appearance and your confidence. If you are ready to give yourself the gift of teeth whitening this holiday season, schedule a consultation with Hamilton Family Dentistry. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season from our dental family!
