The sheer scope of tooth whitening products available today is staggering. And it’s not merely offered in varieties of toothpastes or mouthrinses, either. Specialized trays and strips, dental floss, chewing gum, and – believe it or not – even some toothbrushes claim they are specifically formulated to help whiten your teeth. Recent reports show that Americans spent over $1.4 billion on over-the-counter tooth whitening products in 2016. Unfortunately, these products typically fall short of providing the desired results. On the other hand, Sacramento’s Marconi Dental Group has true methods for whitening your teeth, including with one simple visit.
Benefits of Professional Tooth Whitening
Most DIY remedies have a hit-or-miss approach: just keep doing it, and you’ll likely get whiter teeth sooner or later. In contrast, professional tooth whitening must work – otherwise, people would stop asking dentists for it. On the contrary, the demand for tooth whitening has recently increased.
Professional tooth whitening is also quick and convenient. A single visit provides a noticeable difference, typically within an hour. You also have the choice of how white you want your teeth to become. If one visit is not enough, or if you want more control over how white your teeth get, custom appliances are available, so you can manage the progress at home.
Professional tooth whitening does not use the same trays you find on television or at the drug store, made to a general “one size fits most” specification. Such methods result in poor fit and messy application, with their whitening compounds often getting everywhere but your teeth. Professional whitening comes from researched and verified methods, tailored to your teeth alone. Not only that, but the progress is monitored by your experienced Sacramento dentist at the Marconi Dental Group.
