Should you have your teeth professionally whitened?

Have you been noticing that your teeth look dull, dingy, and a bit yellow? If you wish your teeth were whiter, it can be tempting to pick up a whitening kit, whitening toothpaste, or mouthwash at the grocery store instead of making an appointment with your favorite dentist for professional tooth whitening. However, there are certain benefits to having this done at your dentist’s office.

The benefits of professional tooth whitening

You may think the products available at the grocery store are just as good as anything your dentist can do, but here are 4 reasons why you should have your teeth whitened by a professional:

1. Your dentist can use teeth whitening solutions that are much stronger than what you can buy over the counter, for more noticeable and impressive results.

2. Your dentist knows how to whiten your teeth safely. At-home kits from the store can have bleaching agents that can make gums sensitive and painful, but your dentist knows how to avoid this.

3. Your dentist can perform a whitening procedure in an hour or less, and you’ll see results as soon as it’s done (compared with home treatments, which can take months before you see results). This makes professional tooth whitening the perfect solution if you need an improvement fast, such as if you are preparing for a wedding or an important job interview.

4. Your dentist will be able to give you detailed instructions on how to care for your newly whitened teeth.

If you would still rather perform teeth whitening at home, you can also opt for at-home Zoom whitening treatments. This is offered by Dr. Samuel Jirik and comes with many of the same benefits of in-office whitening, such as professional strength whitening solution and the professional advice you need to get the most out of your treatment.

Whitening toothpastes, mouthwash, and kits you can get at the grocery store may seem like a good idea – but if you want results you can depend on for an impressive, confident smile, you shouldn’t leave it to chance. Contact Dr. Samuel Jirik’s office in Cabot, Arkansas, for more information about professional tooth whitening. Call (501) 843-9561 today!
