Why You Should See a Professional for Teeth Whitening, Honolulu, Hawaii

A dazzling, white smile never goes out of style. If you are tired of hiding your grin because of tooth stains or haven’t found success with at-home whitening options, you should see a professional for teeth whitening services. Here are a few reasons to use a dentist.

3 Reasons to Have Your Teeth Whitened by a Dentist

1. Whiter Teeth

Unlike one-size-fits-all home kits, professionals provide customized solutions, so each tooth is whitened evenly. Dentist solutions have more hydrogen peroxide than home kits, leaving you with whiter teeth. This bleaching agent breaks down into hydrogen and oxygen to remove stains from teeth. A dentist will also help you to keep your teeth white for longer. They will recommend avoiding stain-causing beverages and tobacco.

2. Prevents Bleached or Burnt Gums

Additionally, it can be easy to make a mistake without the expertise of a professional. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, you should use a dentist to avoid discomfort from home kits.

3. Quick Treatment

Dentists can treat you far quicker than at-home options. Depending on the staining severity, the procedure generally takes 30 minutes. Home kits, on the other hand, require use for at least seven days, and most kits require you to leave the trays on your teeth for 30 minutes at a time. A dentist eliminates lengthy treatment times by providing a perfectly white smile in just one session.
