Do over-the-counter products work for teeth whitening?

image of a patient who recently received a teeth whitening treatment nutley njAlthough there are many options for brightening your smile available at your local grocery store, there are a few facts about professional whitening with your dentist in Nutley to keep in mind.

  • Dr. Richard Tom has whitening gel that is much higher strength than what is available at the store. This means less time to achieve your desired results and more time smiling!
  • Over-the-counter products are not custom fit, which may mean you won't achieve the results you’re hoping for and could lead to problems with excess whitening gel reaching your soft tissues.
  • Whitening under the supervision of your dentist is always advisable in case you should encounter any concerns with sensitivity or other issues.

RT Dental offers two different options for whitening that will help you achieve your goals efficiently and safely. In-office whitening offers immediate results after only one visit to our office, while take-home whitening trays give you the freedom to whiten at your leisure and update your smile down the road whenever you like.

We would love to help you reach your goals for a healthy and beautiful smile. Contact our office today to learn more about your options for teeth whitening in Nutley, NJ.
