If you would like a brighter smile in Laveen, you may be thinking about getting an over-the-counter (OTC) whitening kit to treat yourself in the comfort of your own home. But did you know that you can get a professional-grade take-home whitening kit from Dr. Mark Evans at Laveen Smiles? Here are a few of the top reasons that professional take-home whitening kits are a great choice.
First, Dr. Evans will be able to examine your mouth and make sure your teeth are healthy and strong. Teeth whitening can weaken the teeth temporarily, so it’s not good to whiten your teeth if you have a cavity, or if you have gum disease.
In addition to this, Dr. Evans can assess the color of your teeth, determine the ideal shade for your smile, and take other factors like fillings and crowns (which are not whitened by treatment) into account while developing your treatment plan.
This ensures that you get the best possible results. In comparison, OTC whitening kits are “one-size-fits-all,” and do not allow you to get input from a dentist before you begin treatment.
Before your treatment begins, you’ll come to Laveen Smiles to have impressions of your teeth taken, and these impressions will be used by a dental lab to create a set of durable, reusable whitening trays.
These trays will fit perfectly onto your teeth to ensure that the whitening product is delivered evenly, and they are reusable, so if you need to touch up your teeth in the future and reverse minor staining, it’s easy to do so.
In contrast, OTC products do not allow you to get custom whitening trays, so they may not deliver the whitening product to your teeth evenly, which can lead to subpar results.
Your whitening products will be carefully selected by Dr. Mark Evans to ensure that you achieve the results you want. We use high-end, professional-grade products that are formulated for the best whitening power, while preventing the weakening of your enamel throughout the treatment process.
This leads to better overall results. With an over-the-counter kit, you may get weaker whitening products that take longer to deliver the same whitening power. In addition, many OTC products focus only on whitening the front six upper and lower teeth, which means your smile may not look completely even.
