There are several different types of teeth whitening available to patients in Aurora, CO, and the answer depends on which you are talking about. While brightening your smile with a store-bought kit seems like the fastest and most convenient choice, it also comes with drawbacks.
Professional Teeth Whitening VS Over-the-Counter Whitening
If you are concerned about safety, your best bet is to go with professional teeth whitening. Generic store-bought kits are just that; they don’t take your individual needs—like tooth sensitivity—into account. When you have in-office teeth whitening or use a customized take-home kit, you have the support of professionals who are familiar with your unique dental needs.
Dr. Amber Schmidt will prescribe a stronger prescription-strength whitener than what you can purchase over the counter but is still safe for your teeth.
Your custom whitening kit also includes custom trays that we make using impressions of your teeth. Since the trays fit your teeth snugly, you will see consistent whitening, and the gel won’t seep out and under the tray and cause gum sensitivity or irritation.
