THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING VS. OVER-THE-COUNTER TEETH WHITENERS

added on: December 20, 2013

Your smile is one of the first things that others notice when they meet you, so it’s natural to feel self-conscious if your teeth are discolored. If you’d like a brighter, whiter smile, you may be considering some of the many over-the-counter teeth whitening options widely available in stores; but professional teeth whitening offers many advantages over retail teeth whiteners, including greater effectiveness and faster results.

St. Joseph, Michigan, cosmetic dentist Dr. Sven Erickson is pleased to offer patients Zoom! teeth whitening, an effective and customizable brightening system that provides noticeable results in a single treatment. If you live in the southwest Michigan region and would like to learn more about your teeth whitening options, please call Modern Dentistry Associates at 269-264-4388 to schedule your consultation.

Professionally applied teeth whitening treatments are superior to over-the-counter products for a number of reasons, including:

  • The whitening agents used in dental teeth brightening treatments are stronger than those in retail teeth whiteners and provide immediate results; over-the-counter whiteners require long-term use to achieve results
  • Professional teeth whitening can correct deep stains that over-the-counter teeth whiteners cannot
  • The custom-fit trays used in professional treatments ensure that your sensitive gums are not exposed to the bleaching agent; retail models are one-size-fits-all and often fit improperly
  • Over-the-counter teeth whiteners can produce spotty results; our teeth whitening treatments are administered by Dr. Erickson to ensure a seamless, vibrant smile

Dr. Erickson also offers take-home teeth whitening kits that feature custom bleaching trays so you can maintain your bright, healthy looking smile in the comfort of your own home. For additional information, please see our Teeth Whitening Questions page.
