Should You Choose Take-Home or In-Office Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening continues to remain one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures, both for its affordability and its immediate results.
If your teeth aren’t as white and bright as you’d like, perhaps you have considered teeth whitening treatment from your Vallejo dentist. Dr. Morgan Nordstrom and Dr. William C. Vizzolini are pleased to offer patients two options: in-home and in-office whitening treatments.
Which is the right one for you? That really is up to your own personal preference. Let’s take a look at both procedures and what you can expect from them.
Teeth Whitening Procedures: The Choice Is Yours
Professional teeth whitening has been shown to be quite effective, and both in-office and at-home treatments can give you dazzling results. The main difference between the two procedures comes down to one thing: time.
When you opt for treatment at the dentist’s office, you will have results that are obvious immediately after treatment. Treatment time is usually about an hour, although this can vary depending on the amount of staining that needs to be removed from your teeth. Regardless, you will walk out of the dentist’s office with teeth that are several shades brighter than when you walked in.
When you opt for treatment at home, you can still expect the same whitening results but they will take place over a longer period of time. You will wear your custom whitening trays each day at home until you have reached the desired level of whiteness. It might take a week—or it could take several weeks. It will depend on the results you are hoping for and the current level of your staining.
Both in-office and at-home whitening treatments are safe and effective—and both yield results that are far superior to over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments.
