If you are interested in having a whiter smile, then you should consider getting your teeth whitened! Fortunately, there are many teeth whitening treatments available today. Our dentists, Dr. Olivia Park and Dr. Thomas A. Gordon, are happy to help you know more about specific treatments by telling you all about the differences between professional in-office teeth whitening and over-the-counter teeth whitening. The more you know, the better chance you have of choosing the right treatment for your smile!

Professional in-office teeth whitening

An in-office treatment is a convenient way to whiten the teeth, especially because it only requires one appointment at our office and it whitens the smile many shades. The results can last for a long period of time, and the treatment is completely safe for you. It can remove both minor and stubborn stains from your teeth.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening

An over-the-counter treatment is also convenient because it can remove minor surface stains from your enamel within the walls of your own home. You can also choose from a variety of different whitening options, like whitening toothpaste, whitening kits, whitening gel, and more. These treatments tend to get a little messy and they can take weeks or months to complete. It’s very important to avoid misusing the treatment because it can harm your teeth and gums if you’re not careful.
