OTC Whitening: Not Your Best Choice

If you’re hoping to do something about your stained smile, then you have come to the right place! Fortunately, we offer all of the cosmetic care you might need when you want to achieve a smile that sparkles. We also have a ton of advice to give you if you’re thinking about considering over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening instead of coming straight to our practice. Not sure what to do but your gut tells you to stick with professional care? We can help.


OTC Cons Outweigh The Pros

We encourage you to avoid getting too caught up on the pros associated with OTC teeth whitening. They’re quite obvious. It’s easy to buy this type of cosmetic care, it’s very budget friendly, and you can get it done quickly. However, the cons outweigh these seemingly wonderful advantages. Keep them in mind, so you’ll remember to come to us instead:

  1. OTC whitening will probably dehydrate your dental tissues

  2. OTC products may be too harsh and can cause serious side effects to teeth and gums

  3. These products will not lead to obvious, marked improvement, so you will need multiple treatments (all the while, causing increasing damage to your smile)

Seeing A Professional Is Best

When you come to our team composed of dental professionals, you enjoy some major benefits that you cannot expect from OTC products or care. Here’s what we would like for you to remember:

  1. We offer you a suggestion based on an expert diagnosis regarding whether you require teeth whitening or another form of cosmetic treatment to achieve the desired results

  2. We provide you with safe, gentle, yet effective care for obvious results without oral health side effects

  3. We offer not only whitening but also bonding and veneers, which means if you’re not a candidate for one, we can help with another
