Why Should I Choose Supervised Whitening Treatment?
There are a variety of teeth whitening methods; which include; professional whitening procedure, whitening strips, abrasive whitening toothpastes, whitening mouthwashes, at-home used charcoal and banana peel etc. But among all of these, professional whitening procedure stands out to be the most effective one. The reason of its efficacy is the optimum percentage of bleaching content present in the whitening gel which makes around 30-40%.
However, the amount of bleaching constituent is very less in whitening pastes and mouthwashes. So it is almost impossible to remove the heavy stains and discolorations with these over-the-counter products. These products are only effective after the in-office whitening procedure. Because their mechanism is just to maintain the pearly white shade achieved after whitening procedure and cannot produce the white shade.
Whitening procedure is performed under the supervision of the Dentists which makes it safe, comfortable and effective. There is a light source, Halogen, UV or Laser, that is thrown on the teeth surface to activate the bleaching gel. There are 2-3 cycles to carry out the whole procedure.
