Teeth Whitening at Home vs. Professional Whitening: A Comparison

Have you ever looked in a mirror and wished your smile were brighter? A dazzling smile is a confidence boost. But which of all the teeth-whitening options out there is best? 

Let’s compare at-home whitening to the professional whitening offered at clinics such as Concierge Dental Group

The basics of teeth-whitening 

Teeth can become stained. Whitening uses chemicals—primarily peroxide—to bleach the teeth. Bleaching removes stubborn stains from teeth just as it removes them from clothes. 

At-home teeth-whitening is affordable and convenient 

The primary benefits of do-it-yourself, at-home whitening are its lower

cost and greater convenience.  

Most whitening kits include strips, gels, or paste.  

Here’s how they work: 

  • Strips: Thin, gel-coated strips stuck on the teeth for a time and then peeled off. 
  • Gels: Sticky bleaching solutions brushed onto the teeth. 
  • Pastes: Like toothpaste except they contain whitening chemicals. 

Kaitlin’s experience 

A valued client we’ll call Kaitlin once used an over-the-counter whitening-strips kit.  

At first, Kaitlin noticed a brighter smile. But the results faded after a few weeks and her gums were sensitive.  

While convenient, at-home whitening wasn’t a long-term solution. 

Professional whitening combines expertise and lasting results 

The advantages of professional whitening such as that offered at Concierge Dental Group include: 

  • Personalized treatment: Dental professionals assess your teeth and devise a whitening plan just for you. 
  • Quick Results: In many cases, one session yields visible results. 
  • Safe procedure: Professionals ensure the chemicals used are safe and applied correctly, minimizing sensitivity. 
  • Lasting results: Professional whitening can last longer than at-home whitening. 

Which is right for you? 

Professional and at-home whitening both have pros and cons.  

If you’re looking for a quick, relatively inexpensive fix, you might want to try an at-home kit.  

But for lasting transformation and personalized care, you can’t beat professional whitening.
