Should You Pick An At-Home Or In-Office Dental Whitening?

Discoloration can be hard to notice from one day to the next, but over time, the color-rich foods and drinks we consume can leave us with stains that make us self-conscious. With a professional whitening treatment from your dentist, you can take your smile’s brightness up by several shades. There are multiple methods for treatment through your dentist. You can see consequential changes in a single visit, but – if you prefer – you can do the work of whitening your teeth at home, and enjoy professional-level results.

Your Options For An In-Office Dental Whitening

You can choose between two different approaches when it comes to an in-office whitening procedure. Each offers different benefits that may especially appeal to your needs. A Sinsational Smile treatment can bring about results in roughly twenty minutes. This means less time in your dentist’s chair, and less time before you have the white smile you are after. Sapphire By Rembrandt can offer results without the dental sensitivity people may experience after professional whitening treatment.

Making The Choice To Whiten Your Teeth At Home

If you would rather take the time to whiten your teeth at home, you can take the tools you need from your dentist – a custom oral tray, and whitening agents – and do so. Two to four weeks of treatment can offer results that match what you would enjoy from an in-office procedure.

The Problem Of Intrinsic Discoloration

Intrinsic discoloration is caused by problems that whitening agents can fare poorly against. If you have intrinsic discoloration, you and your dentist can review the other cosmetic dental procedures that may help take care of your problem.
