Teeth whitening at home or in our office is great.

Getting your teeth white shouldn’t have to be a hassle, but it can sometimes turn into one, especially when it comes to what type of treatment you’re receiving – in-office or at home. The truth is, there are many differences between receiving care at home or at our office. Over-the-counter methods are popping up everywhere for people to take advantage of, the only problem is results may not be as great with regular brand treatment. Bright, white teeth can grab anyone’s attention, but if you’re not using the correct treatment, it’s a waste. When you come to our office in Toledo, OH, we can provide you with excellent in-office whitening treatment that can make your smile brighter and whiter than ever before. Perrysburg residents are in for a treat when they choose to see us for whitening treatment.

Over the Counter vs. In-Office Treatment

You can go to any grocery store and find over-the-counter whitening treatment. You’ve most likely seen commercials or heard radio advertisements for these supposed “great” whitening products. Safety becomes a major issue when discussing these whitening treatments. Unlike professional teeth whitening where the dentist is well aware of the chemicals and whitening agents that compose in-office whitening, nobody really knows what’s inside of over-the-counter treatment. The results aren’t that great either. Tooth sensitivity and oral sores are most commonly experienced by patients that use them.

On the flip side, we have in-office treatment. The first benefit right-off-the-bat is the fact that the procedure is overseen by a licensed dental professional. Our in-office treatment can get your teeth looking up to several shades brighter and can be completed in just one office visit. You can’t get those type of results with over-the-counter brands. Not only do they not work fast enough, but the results are mixed and most often not even worth it in the end. There’s simply no better way to get your teeth white than coming to our office and having our dental team get to work on making your smile look amazing.
