Some of our patients ask if there is a difference between professional-grade and over-the-counter teeth whitening
, aside from the cost. The answer is yes! Professional teeth whitening, such as the Philips and Opalescence®
brands we use, uses a stronger whitening agent that brighten tough stains quickly and is monitored by our team who knows your teeth and enamel. Unlike multi-step whitening process from drugstore brands, professional-grade teeth whitening ensures more a vibrantly brighter smile in under an hour or a matter of weeks, with take-home options. Professional whitening products also work to reduce tooth sensitivity during treatment and many patients report feeling no pain or gum irritation with our whitening solutions!
