Are you interested in knowing the differences between in-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments? If so, you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Van Parham, is happy to discuss the details of both treatments. The more you know, the better chance you have of choosing the treatment that is right for you.

Professional in-office teeth whitening

An in-office whitening treatment can eliminate your minor and stubborn tooth stains to brighten your smile many shades. In fact, it can do all this within one quick appointment at our office. Our dentist will paint the whitening solution onto your teeth and activate it with a special light. This can safely give you the results you desire for a long period of time.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening

An over-the-counter whitening treatment can be found at any grocery store. There are many options available, like whitening toothpaste, whitening gel, whitening kits, and more. These treatments tend to get messy and they only remove minor stains. They brighten the smile one or more shades and can take weeks or months to complete. Some treatments can even be harmful to the smile.
