If you would like to improve your smile with teeth whitening, the first step is deciding how you’ll do it. At Ray McKinley DDS & Brittany McKinley-Holloway DDS — McKinley General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Shelby Township MI, teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures.
There are lots of whitening products out there, but what they have in common is a peroxide-based active ingredient. The difference lies in the strength of the bleaching solution and method of delivery. Professional-strength whitening uses a higher concentration of peroxide. In other words, it is stronger.
At-home, do-it-yourself whitening with products you can buy at the grocery store are generally less expensive. They are also not as effective. Even more concerning, the whitening systems don’t protect gum tissue as well as professional techniques.
In-office whitening, on the other hand, is much safer for the soft tissues in the mouth. The results are superior and can usually be achieved in a single appointment.
A middle ground are professional-strength take-home kits available from many dental practices.
At Ray McKinley DDS & Brittany McKinley-Holloway DDS — McKinley General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Shelby Township MI, we offer in-office teeth whitening and take-home kits. Both deliver excellent results. We’ve improved the smiles of people throughout Washington Township, Macomb, and Lakeside, who also come to us for general dentistry and dental implants.
