Beware of Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Products

professional teeth whitening results - PittsburghWe all want bright, white, photogenic teeth. Yellow, stained teeth can mar a beautiful smile and dramatically affect your self-confidence. So it’s natural and understandable that many Pittsburgh-area residents are curious about over-the-counter teeth whitening products.

However, it’s important to understand that these products are not your best options. While the products you can buy at Target or your local drug store seem to offer you convenience and simplicity, the reality is quite different.

Over-the-counter whitening products are obviously mass produced for a massive customer base. This is the only way they can prove profitable. This means your whitening product will not be custom-designed for the unique shape of your teeth. This, in turn, means you won’t get a pleasant, uniform whitening. Instead, you’ll get an uneven, somewhat unsightly result.

Furthermore, because these mass-produced products won’t fit precisely, you’re at risk of getting whitening gel on your gums, tongue and the inside of your cheeks. This can cause a great deal of unpleasant discomfort.

By contrast, the whitening treatments at our office are custom-designed for your specific needs. And they are applied by our skilled, experienced team. We’ll protect your safety and ensure you get an even, uniform whitening result that you’ll love.
