In-Office Teeth Whitening VS At-Home: What Works Best & for Who

There are many people who want whiter teeth. Generally speaking, they can either do in-office teeth whitening or use at-home whitening strips. The rest of this article will discuss the pros and cons of each, as well as what works best and for who.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

The best thing about in-office teeth whitening is the results. The results will be immediate and the professional performing the procedure will ensure you get the best results possible. They’ll also decide which method of teeth whitening should be used before they begin the procedure. Let’s not forget to mention that in-office teeth whitening is far more safer than at-home procedures, including strips.

There really are only two major cons to in-office teeth whitening. First, more chemicals are typically used in products that the professionals use. Not only that, but you can expect to pay quite a bit for professional teeth whitening.

Always a great experience. Professional, friendly and efficient staff. Dr Knudson is extremely knowledgeable and has done an amazing job on all of my dental work! I recently had my front veneers done by him and my smile has never looked better.

Reasons to Consider Teeth Whitening...

  • Improve Appearance
  • Improve Self-Confidence
  • Improve Quality of Life

At-Home Whitening Strips

At-home whitening strips are very easy to use. All you do is place a strip over your teeth and then remove them after a specified period of time. Besides that, strips are affordable; It doesn’t matter what your budget is, the chances are you can afford at-home teeth whitening strips.

One of the major cons is effectiveness. If you don’t buy high quality strips, then don’t expect to get good results. Another con is the results might not be even. This means some teeth be whiter than other teeth, while some teeth may remain a yellowish color.

What Works Best & For Who

At-home strips are ideal for those who are busy and don’t have the time to go and sit at an office to have a teeth whitening procedure done. Also, strips are good for those who don’t want to spend the money on professional services. Furthermore, strips are perfect for those who want a quick way to get whiter teeth. Do bear in mind that you have to be patient when it comes to using strips.

In-office teeth whitening is best for those who want their teeth as white as possible. It’s also for those who want a thorough job and even results. Not only that, but a professional will provide you with advice on how to maintain your results. If you want to receive expert advice, get extremely white teeth and you don’t mind spending the money, then in-office teeth whitening services is probably the option you want to go with.

As for which of the two works the best, that would be in-office teeth whitening. However, you can still get amazing results with whitening strips, but you do need to know what you are doing. If you make a mistake, then you won’t get the desired results.
