Do Home Teeth Whitening Kits Work?

December 13th, 2021

If you are dreaming of a white Christmas with a whiter smile, now is the time to start whitening. Imagine how much more confident you will feel in your family photos and at holiday parties with a brighter smile! At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we offer professional at-home whitening kits to achieve your ideal smile. If you are tired of buying tubes of whitening toothpaste and whitening strips without much improvement, consider giving yourself the year-round gift of a brighter smile.

The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

·        Enjoy Long-Lasting Results—Each patient’s results vary based upon their eating habits and oral cleaning regimen, but the average patient maintains their whitening results for about 2-3 years. The wonderful thing about our at-home option is that you can start your trays again whenever your teeth have lost the bright white gleam.

·        Minimize Chances of Side Effects—Most patients can undergo teeth whitening with minimal side effects when completed under the care of a dentist. The possible side effects of teeth whitening are root damage or teeth sensitivity. When you are whitening with a professional dentist, you will undergo a consultation and examination so we can determine how likely you are to experience any side effects. Also, your professional whitening kit will be customized to suit your needs specifically. There is no need to overdo it with whitening agents if you only need a few shades brighter to achieve your smile. If you are whitening on your own, you could be setting yourself up for discomfort from side effects.

·        Obtain a Whiter Smile by 5-7 Shades—With professional whitening, you can anticipate faster and better results. At-home whitening strips may utilize similar components to our whitening products, but they are not nearly as concentrated. Since the products are so weak, you will be using whitening strips for a long time to have any noticeable results. Even if your smile is brighter, you should not expect 5-7 shades with an off the shelf option. Whitening toothpaste will only be helpful at removing surface stains because it will not contain peroxide to reach the deeper staining. If your teeth have been stained for a while, you will need something stronger than a whitening toothpaste.

Whitening your smile can truly transform your appearance and your confidence. If you are ready to give yourself the gift of teeth whitening this holiday season, schedule a consultation with Hamilton Family Dentistry. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season from our dental family!

FAQ

  • How often should I visit your office?

    We recommend patients visit our office two times each year for dental checkups.  These preventative visits are the standard in care as set forth by the American Dental Association and this is typically frequent enough to prevent most oral health concerns and diagnose others in the earliest stages.

  • What is periodontal disease?

    Gum (periodontal) disease is a common oral health concern that occurs when plaque and tartar buildup irritates gum tissue and breaks down soft tissue and supportive jawbone structure leading to a number of oral health concerns.  We offer a variety of periodontal therapy options to renew oral health for patients suffering from gum disease.

  • Can I call you during dental emergencies?

    We are happy to help patients during dental emergencies.  Don’t hesitate to contact us right away.  We provide same day appointments whenever possible and are happy to walk you through first aid and pain management over the phone.

  • Can I bring my kids to Hamilton Family Dentistry?

    Absolutely.  We’re happy to provide pediatric dental care for young patients and we offer a variety of treatments specifically geared toward patients with growing smiles.

  • I get nervous at the dentist. What can you do to help?

    In addition to treating each patient with the level of kindness and compassion they deserve, we also offer a variety of sedation dentistry solutions to help patients stay relaxed and pain free from the moment they arrive.

  • How will I know if I have a root canal infection?

    The doctor will need to examine your tooth to find out for sure, but contact us right away if you experience any of the following common warning signs of root canal infection:

    • Severe toothache
    • Sensitivity to changes in temperature
    • Discoloration of a single tooth
    • Infection in the gums around a tooth
  • Do you offer financing plans?

    We are happy to work with qualified patients to find low or no interest payment plans through two third party dentistry financiers, CareCredit and Lending Club.  Please ask us if you qualify for our financing options at your next appointment.
