If you’ve tried the over-the-counter whitening products in your local drugstore and been unhappy with the results, you are not alone. It may be time to speak to a professional in Columbus, OH about professional-grade whitening services that can brighten the teeth and restore self-confidence.
Why don’t over-the-counter products provide the results I want?
Drugstore brands and products are only allowed to have a certain percentage of active ingredients to be used by the general consumer. Because of this, the strength of the active ingredients is considerably lower than the products used in dental practices.
The power of professional teeth whitening
Dr. Sharon Schindler offers two methods of whitening in her practice including her in-office power bleaching for same-day improvements or a customized take-home kit. Whichever one you choose will provide better results than anything available over-the-counter, ensuring patients get the boost of brilliance and beauty they deserve.
Which one is right for me?
In-office power whitening is more expensive but provides same-day results in about two hours. Alternatively, the take-home trays and bleaching gel is more affordable but requires daily treatments to obtain the same results within a few weeks. Some patients with more stubborn colors in their teeth require deep bleaching to achieve whiter results. For deep bleaching, an in office whitening treatment with gels and blue light technology is done first followed with at home whitening gels used in custom trays for a period of time. The combination of doing both treatments, deep bleaching allows stubborn teeth to whiten nicely.
Keep in mind that for teeth that have defects in the enamel or bonding/old fillings the best option to whiten the teeth maybe cosmetic porcelain veneers. Dr. Schindler is a master and artist with smile design and can help guide you with the best treatment option for you to achieve a more beautiful and whiter teeth.
