Having white teeth is part of a beautiful smile, and with the number of store-bought whitening kits and toothpastes with whitening agents, there is no shortage of ways to brighten your teeth. However, one of the most common complaints with whitening kits is that it causes tooth sensitivity. This is because the way in which the solution is delivered doesn’t do a very good job of keeping the gel from seeping into the soft tissue of the gums.
A better way for you to get your teeth whitened to a level you want is to have it done professionally. Tooth whitening is a good way to quickly restore your bright smile.
Tooth Whitening at the Dentist
In-office tooth whitening can be done quickly and in a way that meets your needs. The bleaching gel is carefully applied to your teeth and the time it is in contact with your gums is minimal. Instances of sensitivity are eliminated in this way. You also get instant results.
There are take-home kits that have customized mouthguards. These let you whiten your teeth on your own time, but the risks of having bleaching gel touching your gums for long periods is reduced.
While there is no guarantee that you will not have any tooth sensitivity with tooth whitening, when it is done professionally, you can improve the results and reduce risks of discomfort.
