There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home. However, these products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional grade treatments provided . Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to achieve a noticeable whitening.
In office bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Whitening procedures in our office take two hours and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.
After your professional whitening appointment, you may wish to purchase whitening products. Our staff can recommend the appropriate product for you to use at regular intervals to keep your smile bright.
