 Teeth Whitening – The Pros And Cons Of Different Procedures

Brushing and flossing your teeth every day is a centuries-old way to keep them healthy, while and bright. However, you still might feel like your smile lacks some sparkle or is a bit more yellow-ish than it used to be. Well, honestly, you aren’t alone in this thought. We’ve asked many people what they’d like to improve in their smiles. Do you know what the most common response was? Whiter teeth. Our cosmetic dentists at Dental Aesthetics can make this dream of yours a reality with the Best Teeth Whitening Treatment.

Though before anything else, whether you’ve decided to get your teeth whitened or not, it is essential to understand which procedure suits you the best. Considering that there are plenty of them to choose between, let’s get into the pros and cons of each to know the Best Way to Whiten your Teeth.

Whitening Strips for Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening strips have in them bleaching agents that get into action once you apply the strips along with the teeth. Ideally, for the best results, you need to wear these whitening strips for approximately half an hour daily for two weeks. However, some brands offer strips that dissolve without the need to be removed.

One of the main pros of opting for this teeth whitening method is that the strips are very economical, as compared to other dental care procedures. On top of that, you can purchase them from your local supermarket or the chemist. Besides, the bleaching agent content is also low in the strips. Thus, making them an ideal procedure of Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth.

According to our dental consultants at Dental Aesthetics, there are a few cons too of using teeth whitening strips. Firstly, the strips only whiten the parts which they touch. Hence, in most cases, they miss the cervices between every tooth. Patience is the key if you opt using these strips because the results take a significant amount of time. All in all, the strips are pretty mild as compared to other dental treatments. To go one shade lighter on your teeth, you’ll have to wait for around two weeks.

Whitening Mouthwash

Teeth whitening rinses or mouthwashes are specifically formulated with a solution of low-intensity hydrogen peroxide. Usually, our dental consultants at Dental Aesthetics recommend using these mouthwashes twice every day after brushing your teeth. The only effort you need to put in is – Swish the mouth wash solution around your mouth for around sixty seconds, and you are good to breathe fresh!

Though talking specifically of the pros of using a mouth was for teeth whitening, they only require a couple of minutes every day to work wonders. Generally, the rinses/mouth washed is gentle on tooth enamel. However, they also work on strengthening it and reduce the bad breath.

Everything that has pros comes with a few cons too. The same goes for mouthwashes. They are not the most promising teeth whitening treatment because they contact your teeth for only a few minutes. To see some convincing results, you will have to wait for four to twelve weeks. Moreover, the solution might also irritate you because its alcohol content is high.


In-Chair Dental Whitening

In-chair dental whitening treatment is just a one-hour treatment that requires one single visit – and voilà, your teeth will be all ready to shine. At Dental Aesthetics, we carry out this Best Teeth Whitening Treatment by applying a whitening gel on the teeth, used in connection with a UV lamp.

The pros? Instant results. Moreover, we perform it in a controlled environment, all while taking every safety measure while applying it. Precise enough, this procedure is very convenient for those who are short on time.

Talking of the cons of the procedure, its results are dependent on the age of the patient. Moreover, its instant results aren’t permanent. They only last for up to two years. And most of the time, a follow up maintenance at home is needed.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Even though every kit varies by brand, they usually include a teeth whitening gel, mouth tray, and an accelerator light. The light connects to the mouth tray, and the gel is applied to the teeth for around ten to thirty minutes every day for seven consecutive days. 

At-home teeth whitening kits are a life-saver for times when you can’t visit your dentist because they help achieve professional results. You can go almost ten shades lighter after seven to twelve applications only. Sounds amazing, right? Well, before you bring home one, let’s look at its cons too. 

For providing effective results, these kits require a window time daily for every seven to twelve days. Moreover, the results are also dependent on the quality of the kit and the brand. Hence, before you get one, ensure that you get the best-reviewed kit. Besides, if you can’t give up on your tea and coffee addiction, and your teeth are deeply yellow-stained, you might not get the desired shade.

You’ve read through the pros and cons of every teeth whitening procedure and the only one that sounded promising is in-chair dental whitening? Well then, delay no more and consult our dentists at Dental Aesthetics. They’ll help you achieve a pearly white smile with the Best Teeth Whitening Treatment in Pakistan that is completely safe and promises great results – a big WHITE SMILE!
