Benefits of in-office teeth whitening

If you are looking for whiter teeth, the amount of different teeth whitening methods may drive you silly. Some methods require a visit to the dentist while you can use others at home. However, if you want the absolute best treatment for your teeth, nothing is going to beat an in-office teeth-whitening treatment with your dentist. What are some of the benefits that you can get at your dentist when compared to the take-home treatments or the over-the-counter products?

More about the Zoom! Teeth whitening procedure
The professional treatment you can receive with your dentist is called the Zoom Teeth bleaching procedure. When you arrive at your tooth whitening appointment, your dentist is going to cover your gums and your lips for your protection, and applies the Zoom! Teeth Whitening Gel. This gel contains hydrogen peroxide and is highly effective.

The dentist then exposes your teeth to a Zoom Lamp in three 15-minute segments. Because of the exposure to the lamp, the hydrogen peroxide in the gel becomes active. As hydrogen peroxide begins to break down, it will bleach away stains from your tooth dentin and enamel.

Benefit #1 – The ease of treatment
One of the first benefits of having a professional tooth whitening treatment is the fact that you do not have to worry about the results. You do not have to concern yourself with whether you have applied enough of the whitening gel. You can rest, and your dentist is going to take care of all your needs for you. The complete administration of the treatment is professionally done.

Benefit #2 – Better and faster results
You do not merely benefit from in-office whitening because of the correct application, but it will also provide better results and do so much faster than any at-home products available could hope to do. Your dentist has a far greater concentration of whitening agents available than you would find in those take-home kits. This means that within an hour or so, you could have a drastically whiter smile. Compare that to spending weeks trying to get similar results at home, and you understand why nothing is going to beat a professional look.

Benefit #3 – It is safer
If you are looking for the safest ways to whiten your teeth, in-office professional tooth whitening is it. You have a dental professional with you throughout the entire procedure to ensure that the whitening procedure is going according to plan.

The other convenient option is to do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.
