Reasons to have professional whitening treatments

It's safe!

As unfortunate as it is, there are a lot of dental products out there that aren’t the safest or even approved by the ADA. There are some products that contain unhealthy amounts of harmful chemicals which can actually damage the teeth over time.

Having the teeth whitened by a professional means that the products that are being used are completely safe. It is important to be cautious of what chemicals are being put on the teeth as they are sensitive. Visiting a dental professional to have whitening treatments done will ensure that only the safest chemicals are being used.

Better results

Visiting a dental professional for teeth whitening treatments can provide much better results than that of store-bought products. Because professional whitening treatments are completely controlled by a dentist, the results are said to be very effective. A dental professional is able to provide someone with results that are up to ten shades lighter.

Again, because a dental professional has access to products and chemicals that are regulated, the results that they can provide are typically better than any product that one would buy in a store.


Having a dental professional whiten the teeth can be helpful for patients because they can ask questions during the treatment process. Sometimes whitening treatments have side effects and people may not always know what to do when these occur. Having a dental professional do the whitening treatment can allow them to also give advice to their patients about any potential side effects or concerns that they have before or after their treatment.

So, even though there are a ton of whitening products out there, it is ultimately best to have a whitening treatment done by a dental professional who can ensure safety and good results while also answering any questions or concerns that may arise during the treatment process. It’s always best to get professional treatment as dentists are trained in everything related to the teeth and gums.
