Advantages of In-Office Teeth Whitening and Professional Take-Home Kits over OTC Products

At Arnold Cutler DDS, we understand that patients want to brighten their teeth for a more beautiful and confident smile. We are dedicated to helping individuals in and around the area of Lakeside, California, who want to achieve the smile they’ve always dreamed of having. Dr. Arnold Cutler can achieve the desired results through in-office power whitening with laser teeth whitening or the KÖR whitening system. In fact, many patients choose our in-office power bleaching because it provides same-day results and much more noticeable changes to the smile. Below are just a few reasons why patients choose our in-office power bleaching over store-bought kits:

  • Professional supervision. In-office power bleaching is conducted under the careful supervision of a skilled dental professional, minimizing the risk of complications or damage to the teeth and gums.
  • Immediate results. Unlike over-the-counter products, which may take several weeks to show results, in-office power whitening offers immediate and noticeable results, often within a single session.
  • Customized treatment. Dental professionals can customize the bleaching process based on the patient’s specific needs and sensitivity levels, ensuring a more effective and comfortable experience.
  • Stronger whitening agents. The bleaching agents used in a professional setting are typically more potent than those available in over-the-counter products, resulting in more significant whitening.
  • Longer-lasting results. The results of in-office power bleaching tend to last longer compared to over-the-counter products, making it a more cost-effective choice in the long run for some patients.
  • Smarter investment. Over-the-counter treatments often do not provide the same results, and it can feel like you’re throwing your money away. Instead, paying more for in-office whitening can be a wiser choice for most.

What other options are available?

 At Arnold Cutler DDS, we also provide Crest Emulsion take-home whitening if patients seek a more economical solution that still offers professional results. This may be the best way to whiten teeth if patients want to address teeth strain removal or yellow teeth in the privacy of their own homes. It is a beautiful alternative to our in-office whitening while remaining affordable.
