Are you happy with the appearance of your smile? It is natural over time that your smile will lose some of its luster. Dull-looking teeth may even cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. The good news is that professional whitening can help you reclaim your smile, and your dentist in Barrie, ON can help!

Is Professional Whitening Better than Over-the-Counter Products?

The answer to this question is - absolutely, yes! OTC products offer a lot of choices and a lesser cost; however, this doesn't mean that you will achieve the same results as working with your dentist. In fact, your dentist has access to much stronger products than you can purchase at the store, which means faster and more effective results. 

OTC products are not customized for your teeth. One-size-fits-all may mean that you don't achieve good results, or that ill-fitting products cause injury to your gums or soft tissues. Whitening your teeth under the supervision of your dentist is always recommended if you experience any issues.

How does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

Your dentist will create customized trays for you with impressions they take of your teeth. Customized trays ensure a proper fit, so you avoid any complications with excess whitening gel. 

You will receive your tubes of high strength whitening gel that you can use to whiten every day for a week initially or until you achieve your desired results. After your whitening treatment is completed, you will have your whitening trays available to refresh your smile whenever you like. So you'll always have a bright smile when you need it most!
