What Should You Expect From Teeth Whitening Products?
You’ve seen your teeth in the mirror. You know whether or not you would like them to be Assuming that you are interested in teeth whitening, do you know the difference between commercial and professional teeth whitening products?
Professional whitening products should be purchased at dentists offices, like any of our three Beaumont Family Dentistry locations. Commercial whitening products can be found on the shelf at retail and grocery stores. These include whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, and whitening gels.
If you are looking at teeth whitening, you want something that will remove deep stains. These are stains that have taken years or decades to develop.
According to the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, whitening toothpaste only removes surface stains from your teeth. That means it’s not really a good option for removing those deep stains.
Commercial strips and gels will go deeper than the surface. These products contain low levels of whitening agents, so there is a real limit to how much whiter your teeth will be.
Professional teeth whitening products can contain up to 11 times higher concentrations of whitening agents. This allows professional products to give you better results in a shorter period of time.
