Many people are quick to opt for over-the-counter teeth whitening products because of the seemingly lower cost as compared to professional teeth whitening services. But most of these products are comparably ineffective and can be quite damaging to your teeth. Some can whiten your teeth a few shades lighter but its properties can damage your enamel. Some over the counter teeth whitening solutions are just simply totally ineffective and a gigantic waste of money.

If you want to know why In-Office Whitening Treatment is your best option for teeth whitening, consider the following regarding professional teeth whitening:

  • It removes extrinsic and intrinsic staining. This means it doesn't only take off stains that occur in the outer covering of the teeth but also, it eliminates stains that are within the enamel.
  • In BriteSmile Teeth Whitening System, the dental tray is personalized to fit the user's mouth perfectly. This reduces irritation and discomfort. OTC whitening trays only offer one-size which often causes problems because it doesn't fit all users.
  • You can see amazing results in just one appointment. Your teeth will be 4-9 shades brighter than before. As for OTC products, it might take months before you can actually see slight brightening.
  • Since most OTC whitening products have a bleach content, often users feel sensitivity or pain after using them. But in professional whitening system in Newport News, VA, we guarantee the treatment is safe and you won't feel any discomfort or sensitivity right after using it.
