Dazzling white teeth boost your confidence. While we would like to have a beautiful Hollywood smile, the reality is daily life takes a toll on it. Fortunately, there are teeth whitening services.
But how do you know which treatment to choose? Should you purchase something at the drugstore and give it a go at home? Or should you go to your dentist for a professional whitening option?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services. Not surprisingly, the ever-increasing popularity of teeth whitening has led to many treatment choices.
At your neighborhood retail store or online, there’s a seemingly ever-growing list of products, like whitening pens strips, gels, toothpastes, and whitening kits. These options appeal to the do-it-yourself person who performs the service at home. Unfortunately, they don’t always produce stunning results.
Professional whitening with an experienced dentist is the gold standard. All you have to do is call for an appointment. During your whitening session, you relax while our team does all the work. Professional whitening is more potent than anything you can buy over the counter.
If you want professional help from your dentist but on your own time from the comfort of your home, dentist-provided whitening trays are an excellent option. Our team provides custom-fitted whitening trays with professional strength whitening agents. We also provide detailed instructions.
We offer both in-office whitening treatments and take-home whitening kits for your convenience.
Are in-office whitening treatment options really worth the time and effort? Yes. They are stronger or more potent than over-the-counter products.
The whitening agents found in OTC teeth whitening products are made from peroxide-based – carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. They are provided in lower concentrations when compared to in-office professional whitening services.
Because over-the-counter products aren’t as strong as in-office whitening treatment options, they take longer to work, especially if your teeth are heavily stained. With professional whitening treatments, you can have a brilliant smile in just one visit to Mowry Dental.
If you want to brighten your smile, call Mowry Dental at 510-794-7900 to schedule a consultation. You can also book your appointment online.
