Tooth whitening: in-office or at-home?

Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is definitely one of the most common or the most easily available cosmetic improvement you can make to your teeth. Brighter, whiter teeth give the impression of good dental hygiene and health and make a fantastic first impression!

If you’re considering tooth whitening, you may be wondering if you should visit your dentist or would it be just as effective if you use commercial products meant to whiten teeth.

Let’s discuss the advantages of tooth whitening at the dentist’s office. Firstly, the procedures and whitening techniques we use tend to yield results faster compared to over-the-counter home kits.

In terms of whitening degrees, an at-home dental whitening kit will get you 4 shades whiter, but at in-office tooth whitening can whiten your smile up to 8 shades (or more!). Tooth whitening kits you can purchase yourself may not get you the results you want, given that they generally remove on the stains on the surface of your teeth instead of deep stains.

However, if you do prefer to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home, Abbotsford Village Dental Centre offers you professional at-home whitening kits that can give you the smile you truly want. Contact us today to learn more or to book an appointment.
