Do at-home teeth whitening kits really work?

Bright, white teeth is the key to a beautiful smile. I’m sure we’ve all been tempted by advertisements for popular take-home teeth whitening kits, but in the back of our minds, we may still question them. Do they really work? Are they safe for my teeth? Are they worth my money if I’m too busy to visit the dentist every few months for professional in-chair teeth whitening?

The answer is yes! But not in regard to the generic teeth whitening kits you may have in mind. Most dentists provide professional take-home teeth whitening kits – as a much safer alternative to over the counter kits, that guarantee results and value for money, and a more convenient alternative than in-chair teeth whitening every few months.

Here are the benefits of professional take-home teeth whitening kits, provided by your dentist.

Custom moulded

Unlike generic teeth whitening kits, those provided by your dentist are custom moulded to your teeth and made specifically for you. This requires just one easy appointment with your dentist and ensures you get the best results after each use at home.

Expert Advice

Considering how often we see advertisements for generic at-home teeth whitening, it’s easy to forget just how careful we should be with bleach. Bleaching applicants can’t be handed out to just anyone. It’s very important that a dentist thoroughly checks your teeth and mouth to ensure it’s healthy enough for you to use bleach. This is especially relevant for patients with sensitive teeth.

Your dentist will also give you careful instructions for how to use the kit at home.

More cost-effective

While you can assume these kits will be more expensive than generic kits, they prove to be worth it for a number of reasons – they’re most recommended by dentists, they guarantee results, and they don’t cost you your oral health.
