Are you interested in knowing the differences between over-the-counter and professional at-home teeth whitening treatments? If so, you have come to the right blog! Today, our dentist, Dr. Mark Jensen, DDS, is happy to discuss the details of both treatments. The more you know about teeth whitening, the better chance you have of choosing the right treatment for you!

Over-the-Counter Whitening

There are many over-the-counter whitening options, like whitening toothpaste, whitening gel, and whitening kits. They can all help you whiten your smile one or more shades, depending on the strength of the whitening solution. Be careful not to overuse the treatment because it can irritate the gums.

Professional At-Home Whitening

Professional at-home whitening is customized to your specific smile goals, especially because the whitening solution is just as strong as you need it to be. The kit has tight-fitting mouth trays that cover your arch of teeth and reduce the mess involved. Your dentist will give you the instructions you need to properly use the kit and keep your smile safe.
