Why is professional teeth whitening better than drugstore products?
It can be pretty overwhelming to try to figure out which teeth whitening products work and which ones don’t work. The stores are filled with shelves full of different teeth whitening products, all claiming to transform your smile.
The truth is that you can spend a lot of time and money on over-the-counter whitening products and never achieve the same consistent whitening that you can with professional teeth whitening. At Irving Park Dentistry, your complete satisfaction is our highest priority, and our teeth whitening treatments provide results you can count on every time.
Basically, there are two major differences between professional whitening treatments and store-bought products. First, these products contain a much lower concentration of peroxide, the ingredient that whitens your teeth. This is because a dental professional does not monitor the use of these store-bought products.
Since professional teeth whitening is handled by our dentist or hygienist, we can safely use a concentration of whitener that will produce noticeable, dramatic results. The other important difference is that our whitening kits come with a customized tray that’s made using impressions of your teeth. This means that the whitening gel can come into direct contact with all surfaces of your teeth evenly for more consistent results.
