Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over The Counter Teeth Whitening

Destrehan cosmetic dentist Dr. Melanie Andrews offers both in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening at Plantation Road Dental Care. With the help of professional teeth whitening, patients can brighten their smile multiple shades. Professional teeth whitening is one of the safest, most effective ways to transform a discolored or stained smile.

Over the counter teeth, whitening products can lead to inconsistent results and may even damage your teeth in the long run. Our professional teeth whitening systems offer consistent, high quality, and long-lasting results. Patients can achieve the smile they’ve always wanted with our professional teeth whitening system.

Benefits Of Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening offers several key benefits over over-the-counter teeth whitening products, including:

  • More consistent results
  • Longer lasting results
  • Lower risk of sensitivity and irritation
  • Fast results
  • Performed under the supervision of a highly trained cosmetic dentist

Your Options for Professional Teeth Whitening

In Office Teeth Whitening: Once the teeth are cleaned, a protective covering is placed over the clothes and eyes to limit exposure. The gums are also protected to reduce the risk of irritation and sensitivity. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated using a LED light; this process is performed multiple times during one session to achieve the desired results.

Take Home Teeth Whitening: Take-home teeth whitening may be ideal for patients on the go, or patients who don’t mind whitening their teeth over a longer period of time. Dr. Andrews can create custom teeth whitening trays that patients may use at their convenience. Patients will fill their teeth whitening trays with the provided bleaching agent and wear their trays for a few hours a day to reach their desired results. Dr. Andrews will create a treatment plan that will help you gradually reach your desired aesthetic.
