Pros & Cons of Tooth Whitening

So you’ve decided it’s time to whiten your discolored teeth? What method will you be using? If you’ve based your decision on cost alone, the cheapest option can sometimes turn out to be the most expensive.

Where Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Fails

There is no denying the popularity of over-the-counter whitening as a budget-friendly choice. But these products may not be best for your teeth. Results can be slow to achieve, and ill-fitting bleaching trays with weak peroxide solutions may cause gum irritation or worse.

How can you know for sure which teeth whitening treatment method is best for you? It’s always wise to consult with a professional cosmetic dentist like Dr. Kevin Sands in Los Angeles, California. Tooth whitening Consultations are free, and Dr. Sands and his staff are knowledgeable, caring and friendly. Better still, professional teeth whitening with Zoom! is very affordable and offers amazing results in less than one hour!

Don’t you owe it to yourself to explore all your options before wasting your money on teeth whitening products that simply don’t deliver?

Disadvantages of at-home tooth whitening

  • Commercial teeth whitening kits usually contain only 10% peroxide solutions
  • Weeks of application are required to see a change in tooth coloration
  • Bleaching trays are one-size-fits-all, resulting in possible gum irritation
  • The process is messy
  • Continued use is required to maintain any whitening you have achieved

Advantages of in-office tooth whitening

  • Dr. Sands uses Zoom! technology to achieve optimal results in one visit
  • Zoom! whitening gel contains a 15-25‰ peroxide solution for maximum whiteness
  • The procedure generally takes less than an hour
  • Harmless non-laser BlueLight technology activates the whitening gel for stunning whiteness
  • The results are long-lasting
