Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular option for improving smile aesthetics, and can be performed either at home or in the dental clinic. Here we explore the differences and features of both methods:

Teeth Whitening at Home:

  1. Whitening Kits: Kits containing whitening gels and customized trays are used for home application.
  2. Comfort: It allows patients to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, following the instructions provided.
  3. Gradual results: The results are usually more gradual than with in-clinic whitening, since it is applied over longer periods of time.
  4. Limited Supervision: Dentist supervision may be limited, which could affect the effectiveness and safety of treatment.

Dental Whitening at the Clinic:

  1. Professionalism: Performed by trained dentists or dental personnel, guaranteeing a professional and safe approach.
  2. Fast results: The results are usually faster and more noticeable due to the concentration of the bleaching products used.
  3. Direct Supervision: The dentist can directly supervise the process, adjusting the gel concentration as necessary and minimizing risks.
  4. Adaptability: Customized adjustments can be made to address specific patient needs.
