Thank you for your interest in our teeth whitening technology. There is no doubt that fierce competition exists within teeth whitening products. Which one is the best?
Every consumer having pursued the quest for “pearly whites” has grappled with this question. Which product is the best? Is it worth the money to go professional vs. over-the-counter? Below are some interesting facts we have compiled to help you with your decision:
Over the counter*
An Optical Illusion
Whitening toothpaste and over the counter whitening strips containing the chemical blue covering creates an optical illusion that can make teeth appear less yellow. It accomplishes this by adhering to the surface of the teeth. Toothpaste cannot actually change the color of the teeth.
Don’t expect quick results
When used twice a day, standard whitening toothpaste can take from two to six weeks to make teeth appear whiter.
Be careful not to damage your tooth enamel
Although whitening toothpaste is generally safe for daily use, be careful to follow manufacturer recommendations. Excessive use of whitening toothpaste can damage your tooth enamel over time.
Professional whitening systems*
Professional whitening systems use a higher concentration of whitening ingredients giving the patient the ability to actually lighten their teeth without damaging the tooth enamel. In addition, the effects last longer and the treatment time is minimal.
Keep in mind your personal habits make a difference
*Results vary per person based on the types of foods and other personal health care habits each individual maintains. This is regardless of what product you use.
