What Are the Differences Between Professional Teeth Whitening and OTC Products?

man nice smile at dentistWhen you look in the mirror, do you wish your smile could be whiter and brighter? With so many products available in the whitening sphere, it’s hard to know which road to take. Is a toothpaste enough, or do you need the over-the-counter strips? Is it time to invest in a professional whitening, or is the do-it-yourself route a better option?

At Chatswood Dental Associates we offer in-chair and at-home whitening products and procedures that are done under the trusted guidance of our dental team. We’ll take you through a personalised consultation to discuss whitening goals and customise a plan for the patient that produces consistent outcomes and long-lasting results.

Now Offering Phillips Zoom! Products

Our practice offers in-chair and at-home Phillips Zoom! products and services.

With Zoom! in-office whitening, you can unlock a smile up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes. These outstanding results are achieved with little to no sensitivity, which is a huge advantage over those popular OTC whitening strips. The Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed Advanced blue LED light-accelerated whitening makes it possible to deliver these dramatic results in minimal time.

Stains from food and drinks, ageing, even discolouration from some types of medication can be treated in-office. In return, you get to leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile.

For those patients who want to do whitening in their home, the custom take-home teeth whitening kits are a convenient way to whiten your smile in one to two weeks. You’ll get professional, affordable results in the comfort of your home, following a consultation with your dentist.

They will ensure your oral health is in good shape and you’re able to safely whiten, while providing you with a kit that will work for your specific needs. The customised trays mould to each patient’s mouth perfectly. This allows for a more comfortable, less sensitive, and improved outcome over OTC products.
