Tooth Whitening: In-Office Vs. DIY

Posted on 4/25/2022 by SmileCOS Dentistry
Whitening your teeth helps improve your smile, but before you do it, the first step is to decide how you will get it done.

Depending on the health of the teeth and gums, the dentist may need to change the concentration of the bleaching solution. On the flip side, do-it-yourself whitening is performed at home. You do the cleanings yourself using products that you get from grocery stores. At-home cleaning is generally less expensive, but not as effective as professional cleanings. Even more concerning is that the whitening systems are not able to protect the gum tissue and do not utilize professional techniques.
