Is professional whitening really that much better than over the counter whitening? This is a popular question that we get at Sioux Center Dental so we’d love to shed some light on whitening options. As most people know, from TV commercials or just from walking through the store, there are a lot of whitening products out there that promise great results. These products include toothpaste, mouth rinses, and even whitening floss! All of these things will do a little bit of whitening and they are okay products, but they will not give you a bright, white smile. These products are for maintenance once you already have the white smile you want. The two best options would be whitening strips or professional whitening trays and gel, which we provide at Sioux Center Dental. The whitening strips work well but are a ‘one size fits all’ option. For some people, they will work great and provide the desired results. For others, these won’t work well at all. The nice thing about the custom trays that we make at Sioux Center Dental, is that they are made of a rubber material and you wear them about an hour per day for two weeks. They will whiten your teeth in a conservative and safe manner using the bleach that we provide. It works very well for many types of teeth and situations and will truly get you the smile that you deserve. Schedule an appointment with us to find out if you’re a good candidate for whitening!
