Why Knoxville, TN residents prefer teeth whitening by a dentist

Teeth Whitening Dentist Knoxville TN

A dazzling white smile is often associated with good dental health. Many patients visit Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville, TN to learn about ways in which they can achieve that “Hollywood white” with teeth whitening treatments. However, some want to know the difference between over-the-counter whitening products such as strips, toothpastes, and trays, and the professional-grade products available through dental facilities.

The team at Sequoyah Dental Arts sees many patients who have had unsatisfactory results with over-the-counter whitening products. In most cases, the chemicals used in these products are often extremely weak. Professional-grade whitening products such as take-home trays and in-office power bleaching solutions are stronger but safer to use when done under the care and attention of a qualified dental professional. While these treatments typically cost more than their drugstore counterparts, they are a better value because they are much more effective in achieving long-term results.

Over-the-counter strips and trays can require substantial time to see any results, and only whiten the teeth near the front of the mouth. Instead, power bleaching at Sequoyah Dental Arts can provide patients with whitening of their entire smile. The take-home whitening kits can also achieve similar results, but can take a week or two to show the results.

Another problem patients experience when they use over-the-counter whitening products is increased sensitivity. This is because of the solution used. Patients can speak with their dentist about the possibility of experiencing short-term sensitivity after whitening, and special toothpastes may be advised before and during the whitening treatments to ensure patients are comfortable and do not experience this common side effect. Sensitivity is much less likely with professional treatments than drugstore brands.

If you are interested in a controlled, safe, and effective result with professional teeth whitening, contact the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts today. Our practice provides both in-office power bleaching for immediate results, and take-home whitening kits with professional-grade solution to whiten teeth in the privacy of their own home.
