Between rushing to drink coffee during your busy mornings and sipping on delicious juices, sodas, and other beverages, your teeth have probably yellowed a few shades over time. While it seems tempting to go the “easy” route and get an over-the-counter product to whiten your teeth, before you spend any money on these simple consumer items, you should consider some of the benefits of getting a professional whitening at your dentist’s office.
What’s an over-the-counter product missing?
The short answer: a lot. While over-the-counter whitening products might make your teeth a few shades whiter for a few days, they only remove surface stains. That means the yellow tint of your teeth will still shine through. It’s like cleaning just one side of a dirty window, it will look a little cleaner, but you can still tell it’s dirty.
Another popular option are the whitening booths you can find at beauty salons and shopping malls. These options seem more effective, right? Well, even though they’re more expensive, these don’t do much more than the over-the-counter products either. The equipment these booths employ is equivalent to consumer products that you could take home and use yourself. You simply won’t be able to get a true whitening and deep stain remover without going to your dentist.
Is there more than one whitening option at my dentist?
Most likely! Dentists these days are able to provide you with a variety of teeth whitening options to fit your needs and budget. However, one of the most recommend methods is the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed procedure. Right in your dentist’s chair, they will use the most advanced LED whitening technology, a scientifically advanced option that truly whitens your teeth and gives you immediate results within one hour!
That means no applying strips and waiting for them to work, and no coming back over and over again. This effect is bright, very noticeable, and very fast!
Over-the-counter products use chemicals that can harm your teeth and leave your gums sore. Philips Zoom is backed by extensive research and clinical studies and only administered by professional, trained dentists. It’s very safe and gives you the whitest teeth possible! It is the only whitening formula that contains ACP, protecting your enamel and giving your teeth a deeper white.
You may experience some minor tooth sensitivity within 1-3 days after treatment, which can be minimized or possibly avoided altogether by following the instructions your dentist gives you.
What is the effect of a dentist procedure?
Philips Zoom allows you to get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just about an hour. It uses LED lights rather than UV, which will cause severe burns. It’s 40% more effective than non-light activated systems, like the products you can buy at home.
You will be able to get comfortable in your dentist’s chair, relax, and walk out with a brighter smile in just a short period of time!
P.S. Professional teeth whitening has never been so affordable. For a limited time only, Chats Dental is running a Smile Special Offer of $449 plus 5 free bonuses (Valued at $350).
