There are many over-the-counter products on the market that claim to have the capability of whitening your teeth. However, it’s important to know exactly what kind of products you are using. Without the guidance of a trained professional, many people put themselves at risk with these products.

There is an abundance of people who have had poor experiences with over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. Some of those kits contain gels that are made just for the teeth and can damage gums. Casual users are often unaware of this fact and can experience issues with their gums. Over-the counter mouth trays are also not custom made to fit your teeth.

Professional dentists can design a tray to match up precisely with your teeth since they are made from an actual mold taken of your mouth. These trays allow the gel to stay right on your teeth where they belong.

Stains can accumulate on teeth as products such as coffee; berries and wine can take their toll. These stains often require stronger whitening gels and substances, which are not available at your local pharmacy. Dentists can offer more powerful gels that are capable of removing even the most stubborn stains. Those gels also have the right amount of hydrogen peroxide and will not damage teeth by eroding the enamel or causing discoloration in the future.

Having a professional administer your teeth whitening procedure takes out all the guesswork. There is no trial and error. Professional supervision also makes for a safer and more productive experience. There is an exact isolation of the teeth which works to protect periodontal tissue from being damaged.

It is also recommended that teeth and gums are healthy before beginning the whitening process. A professional dentist can complete any restorative work as a prelude to starting teeth whitening service.

There are not a great deal of items you can buy to truly enhance your confidence. However, being able to show off a bright smile can do wonders for boosting confidence levels. Your smile is something that never leaves you, so an investment in your smile is an investment in you.
