PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world with people clamoring to the pharmacy for strips, gels, pastes, whitening trays and rinses. However, those over the counter tooth whiteners will not get your teeth as white as your dentist can.
The Problems with Over the Counter Whiteners
Sadly, over the counter tooth whitening products do not contain as much of the active whitening ingredient that your dentists product does. This means that people have a tendency to use too much or too often. Overuse of tooth whitening products can have disastrous affects on your teeth.
People who have overused tooth whitener complain of sensitivity, chalky and even bluish looking teeth. In addition, the tooth whitening trays are a one size fits all solution, which can actually harm your gums if the whitening agent leaks out of the trays.
