Beware of Over-the-Counter Tooth Whitening Solutions

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

Your smile is the first thing people notice when they meet you. But if foods, drinks, and aging have dulled your teeth over time, you might be considering many of the over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions. While these may be tempting options, the truth is over-the-counter whitening products over-promise and under-deliver.

At Desert Smiles, we are pleased to offer our Scottsdale-area patients a comprehensive range of professional tooth whitening products and services that will help you achieve vastly superior results compared with over-the-counter whitening alternatives.

Both professional techniques and over-the-counter products whiten your teeth with chemical bleaches. But the similarities end there. Over-the-counter products contain much weaker whitening gels than those available with a professional grade, in-office tooth whitening system. Our whitening services can remove stubborn stains that over-the-counter whiteners can’t touch.

Over-the counter trays are a one-size-fits-all solution to an individual problem, which means the whitening gel can contact your gums and cause irritation. Our custom trays fit your mouth perfectly, which means better whitening for your teeth and less irritation for your gums.

Professional services can also remove stains caused by antibiotics, and drugstore whiteners simply can’t. And the strength of our medical-grade whitening agents means you’ll see better results in a shorter period of time.

If you’re ready to learn how professional tooth whitening can improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence, please contact Desert Smiles today to schedule your appointment. Dr. Wilcox serves patients in the Scottsdale, Arizona area.
