Our patients often express a desire to whiten stained or discolored teeth – particularly once they have attained a healthy smile. Dr. Orobitg and his team recommend a professional-strength teeth-whitening treatment for best results.
Though numerous products like whitening toothpastes, strips, and gels are available over-the-counter (OTC), they typically only contain a small amount of whitening agent and do not have the same whitening power as professional-strength treatments. While OTC whiteners may be effective for those with only light staining, it won’t do much for people with more severe stains.
Some of the advantages of professional teeth whitening include:
A More-Thorough Whitening
Off-the-shelf whitening products are typically a “one-size-fits-all” solution that often fits no one. Best results should be tailored to your specific needs.
At Orobitg Dentistry, not only do we recommend the best whitening treatments for your teeth, we help you ensure they are applied evenly to brighten your entire smile.
Professional strength whitening agents are able to penetrate tooth enamel and remove more stubborn stains than store-bought kits.
Over-the-counter treatments can cause pain and sensitivity, whether it be because of something in the gel or the whitening agent coming into contact with lips or gums.
When you come to us for your teeth-whitening needs, we take measures to protect your gums, and we can offer fluoride treatments to cut down on tooth sensitivity. Our take-home kits use gel that is thick enough to stay in the trays without going where it shouldn’t.
