Today, we have plenty of over-the-counter products that promise to whiten our teeth quickly. But, these products often deliver sub-par results that can put the health of our teeth and gums in jeopardy. Professional teeth whitening (among other cosmetic dentistry treatments) is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile without compromising your oral health.
At Miracle Dental, we provide long-lasting, professional teeth whitening treatments for patients in Las Vegas, NV, and the surrounding areas. If you’re ready to get a picture-perfect smile, then contact our team at (702) 456-0056 or online here for scheduling, information, and more.
Many patients wonder if professional teeth whitening is worth the cost and effort. In this post, our skilled dentists give you three reasons why you should ditch store-bought whiteners and get professional teeth whitening treatments instead.
Professional Teeth Whitening Is Safer
The vast majority of store-bought whiteners contain, at most, 20% of an active whitening ingredient. That’s a far cry from professional teeth whiteners, which have roughly 40% active whitening ingredients.
The difference in strength is by design. Store-bought whiteners must be safe for the average consumer to use. However, it often has the opposite effect, as many consumers tend to overuse or abuse store-bought whiteners in an attempt to get the results they want.
Overusing and abusing store-bought whiteners is dangerous. The whitening ingredients can cause extreme tooth sensitivity and significant gum irritation, which can lead to pain and infections.
Professional teeth whitening with our dentists in Las Vegas is the safest way to brighten your smile. Our team uses high-quality ingredients and advanced techniques to deliver a breathtakingly white smile without harming your teeth and gums.
Professional Teeth Whitening Is More Cost-effective
Consumers view store-bought whiteners as a cost-effective alternative to professional whitening treatments. However, they may not be as cost-effective as once believed.
On average, store-bought whitening kits cost $30. But, that is only for a two to three-week supply. And, consumers may need to purchase several kits before they get a noticeably whiter smile.
Repeatedly buying store-bought whitening kits quickly adds up. And, for sub-par results, it’s simply not worth it.
Instead, save more time and money with professional teeth whitening treatments. Even without insurance, the estimated costs of professional teeth whitening (approximately $150 to $500 per session) may be comparable to or less than the overall costs of store-bought whiteners.
Professional Teeth Whitening Saves More Time
Store-bought whiteners can take weeks, months, or years to deliver the expected results. Professional whiteners, however, can deliver results in a single, 60-minute appointment.
Not only can you rapidly brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening in Las Vegas, but you can keep your smile whiter for longer, too. Indeed, experts believe that most professionally whitened teeth remain noticeably whiter for at least two years after treatment.
