Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Store-Bought Teeth Whitening

With so many options available for whitening your smile, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of which brands to choose. A visit to your local drugstore can leave you unsure about the best “teeth whitening near me” and wondering what to do next. 

When it comes to getting a more beautiful smile and results that last, however, professional teeth bleaching is always preferable to using store-bought kits.

The Disadvantages of Boxed Teeth Bleaching Sets 

The most significant downside to store-bought whitening treatments is that these generic kits are a one-size-fits-all approach to a treatment that was never meant to be one-size-fits-all. Drugstore variety teeth bleaching trays and strips have to appeal to millions of consumers with mouths of varying shapes and sizes and teeth of dramatically different shades.

It’s impossible to manufacture a product that will fit everyone’s teeth perfectly or achieve the desired level of whiteness for every person, which is why so many people end up disappointed in their results after using an inexpensive teeth whitening kit from the store. 

Unprofessional teeth whitening treatments will often leave people with uneven whitening, results that do not last, and even sensitivity or irritation from the whitening gel moving around due to ill-fitting strips and trays. 

Professional Teeth Whitening in Edina, MN

Teeth bleaching performed in a dental office or at home under the supervision of a licensed dentist, however, guarantees safer, stronger results that will last longer. When you choose professional teeth whitening, your dentist can customize the strength of the whitening gel to your preference and create whitening trays that fit your smile exactly—meaning less tooth sensitivity and no irritation from whitening gel seeping where it shouldn’t.

Patients who choose to whiten their teeth professionally often spend less time and money overall because they don’t have to undergo repeat treatments nearly as often because their first round of teeth bleaching is far more effective.
