Why Professional Teeth Whitening Matters

Treating Grand Rapids, Muskegon, Holland, Michigan And Surrounding Areas

A quick visit to any supermarket or drug store will find a dizzying assortment of tooth whiteners. From mouthwash and toothpaste to strips and applicators, these products promise to brighten teeth and help them stay white. Many even have claims, right on their packaging, that results have been verified through clinical studies and are just as pleasing as results obtained through professional teeth whitening. Unfortunately, these claims are suspect at best and down-right misleading at worst.

Store-Bought Whitening

Anything with a mild abrasive agent can claim to whiten teeth. This means that toothpaste with baking soda, which can remove some surface stains, can be called a “whitening” toothpaste. The same goes for peroxide in mouthwashes and toothpastes. However, neither baking soda nor peroxide in toothpaste and mouthwashes can address deeper or more severe stains.

Enter store-bought whitening products such as strips and kits. These solutions can whiten teeth more than toothpaste and mouthwash, but they do so at a price. Increased tooth sensitivity is very common with these products. So too are inconsistent and unreliable results, largely brought about by the way the solution in these products are applied.

Professional Whitening Treatments

Grand Rapids cosmetic dentist Dr. Jerry Mulder offers both take-home and in-office whitening treatments that comfortably and effectively whiten every tooth in your mouth. Because these treatments are administered under professional guidance, sensitivity is greatly reduced and consistent whitening is easier to achieve. There is simply no comparison between the results you can get with store-bought kits and those offered by professional cosmetic dental treatments.

This charge covers the creation of your customized applicator trays which will help ensure optimal tooth whitening results. Providing you maintain routine examinations and keep your account up to date, we will supply you with bleaching solution free of charge as often as you need. Dr. Mulder can discuss this with you in greater detail during your next appointment.
