Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions nationwide. And with countless home kits on the market today, it’s no wonder why. According to Hexa Research, the popularity of teeth whitening agents are just going to increase. And by 2024, the teeth whitening industry will be worth almost $7.5 billion and driven heavily by European and Asian consumers. Professional whitening treatments seriously trump over-the-counter solutions and always will. But what are the benefits of seeing your Moorestown Dentist for the professional version?
Professional Whitening Treatments Are Customized
In-store whitening kits tend to offer big promises that they can’t deliver. That’s because many people believe the hype and either use them sparingly, overuse, or they use them for the wrong conditions. No whitening products can bleach intrinsic stains which can be caused by genetics, medications, or even trauma. Most whitening kit consumers don’t realize this, but your Moorestown Dentist does. Customized professional whitening treatments are created per patient to handle the stains and achieve the level of whitening preferred in each individual case. It’s never a one-size-fits-all solution in the dentist’s chair.
Professional Whitening Treatments Are Faster Than Store-Bought Options
Natural teeth are made of four layers: pulp, dentin, cementum, and enamel. Only the enamel can be brightened by whitening products. Store-bought kits do work for most people if used correctly, although rarely anywhere near as well as they claim. This is because the bleaching agents in over-the-counter whitening kits average between 5 and 10% while the average professional whitening treatments can range between 12 and 30% bleaching agents. Think about it like this, if you really love chocolate chip cookies and see two left on a plate knowing you can only have one, but one has two chips and the other has ten… which one are you going to choose? Professional whitening treatments are faster than store-bought options because they have higher percentages of peroxide bleaching agents.
Professional Whitening Treatments Boost Confidence
Most dental procedures take at least a few office visits to complete. But there’s nothing like walking into an appointment and leaving an hour later looking and feeling completely transformed. Professional whitening treatments have that power. Depending on the customization and bleaching needed, it can take as little as an hour to reinvent your smile. Say goodbye to the focus being on your laugh line and fine or ingrained wrinkles. Years disappear when your smile is the new centerpiece of your face. And just watch your confidence, social, and possibly even romantic opportunities soar.
Professional Whitening Treatments Can Be Affordable Over 50% of adults over 50 believe a smile can still be one of the most attractive features as someone ages. And 80% of adults, regardless of age, agree they’d pay money for age-reducing beauty treatments. People line up at the door for professional hair treatments, manicures, vein removal, and even certain types of plastic surgery or fillers. Yet so many opt for over-the-counter whitening treatments that pale compared to professional whitening treatments. Yes, the store-bought kits can cost as little as $30-$40 for a monthly strip supply. But you’re also getting a fraction of the whitening power per application as you could with one visit to your Moorestown Dentist. Give us a call when you’re ready to be wowed.
