What A Truly White Smile Does For You
Is having a smile full of white teeth really worth it? In a word, yes! Getting your teeth white has many benefits, including:
- Removing dark stains left behind by coffee, wine, and more.
- Boosting your self-confidence
- Looking years younger when you smile
- Getting more positive attention because you look nice
By calling our Kansas City, MO dental office today, you can be on the road to having those benefits and more thanks to teeth whitening.
The Problems With Drugstore Teeth Whitening
Why doesn’t drugstore teeth whitening kits work as well as what you can get in our dental office?
1. The whitening agent is made weak on purpose.
The FDA limits what you can buy without a prescription. That’s why teeth whitening was normally only available from a dentist. Those drugstore versions can be sold over the counter. Why the exception? Because the whitening agent is diluted and made so weak, the FDA doesn’t care anymore. Of course, that means your results can be less than expected.
2. Your gums can be hurt if you get too much on them.
Dentists are trained in how to use teeth whitening safely. That stuff is made for your enamel, not soft tissues like your gums. If you get too much of that drugstore teeth whitening stuff on your gums, you can irritate or even damage your gum tissue.
3. You can have uneven results if you don’t follow the instructions carefully.
Again, you have to be the dentist when you use drugstore teeth whitening kits. That means you have to quickly “train” yourself by reading the instructions on a side of the box or a small, many-folded piece of paper. If you’re not very careful or you misread one of those instructions, you could have uneven results.
That’s why it’s so important to call us at 816-399-5539 and schedule professional teeth whitening. If you’re looking for a white smile, why try something that could hurt your gums and give you uneven, poor results?
