Choosing a whitening service at our office is generally the best option for whitening your teeth safely and effectively. While there are a variety of systems available at your local pharmacy or super store, these options have pros and cons that you need to consider before you use them.
Typically, at-home teeth whitening systems are easy to use and come in gel, strip, or tray form, and you can feel confident that the solutions are safe. They also allow for the convenience of whitening on your own schedule. Unfortunately, at-home systems tend to cause sensitivity to both the teeth and the gums, and they can be less effective than dental whitening options. Many stains require professional assistance for removal, and trying to whiten around these areas could cause discoloration.
