At-Home vs. In-Office Teeth Whitening

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

At-home teeth whitening is generally done with store-bought kits. There is nothing inherently wrong with these kits, but they are, regardless of their claims, significantly inferior to professional teeth whitening options.

Store-bought kits come with one-size-fits-all application trays or difficult-to-apply strips. Both of these options are incapable of consistently whitening every tooth in your mouth. What’s more, at-home kits often cause tooth sensitivity and soft tissue irritation due to prolonged contact with excess bleaching solution.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Whereas at-home kits can take upwards of 30 days to inconsistently whiten your teeth, professional solutions such as Zoom!® Teeth Whitening can whiten every tooth in your mouth up to eight shades in just one hour.

In-office teeth whitening is safer, more effective, and much faster than at-home methods, and it is all done by our experienced Houston cosmetic dentist. Before you consider an at-home treatment, talk to Dr. Young  about your options to learn if in-office whitening is right for you.
