Have you ever wondered what the difference between In-Chair and Take-Home Teeth Whitening is?

Wonder no more here is a quick breakdown on what sets them apart.

Take Home-Teeth Whitening: 

Take Home-Teeth Whitening is a commitment!

Like starting a diet, it takes discipline, dedication and consistency. As soon as you receive your kit from the Dentist that’s it, you will be in full control!

To get that pearly white smile you will have to set aside a minimum 15 min twice a day for a couple of weeks. The best thing is you just keep going until you are happy with the result!

Make sure to stay away from certain foods and drinks after your sessions that way you will get the most out of them. Always consult your dentist beforehand, they can help you plan times, treatment amounts and even decide if Take-Home Teeth-Whiting is the best option for you.

Pros:

  • You can whiten from the comfort of your own home
  • You can choose your level of teeth whiteness
  • Costs less than In Chair-Teeth Whitening

Cons:

  • Takes time, consistency and dedication.

In-Chair Teeth Whitening: 

Sit back relax and let the professional work!

One session is all it will take for you to have that perfect white smile. Your Dentist will use their professional equipment and experience to clean and polish your teeth removing stubborn stains before they even begin whitening!

The only drama with this method is for approximately 48 hours after you must avoid coffee, wine and acidic foods! Also, you may have a higher tingling sensation which can be uncomfortable.

Pros:

  • Takes only one session
  • Professional clean and application of whitening
  • Glowing white smile

Cons:

  • Teeth sensitivity
  • Cost
  • You can’t control the whiteness level

This small break down should give you a snapshot of the difference between the two, but no matter what method you choose the result is a perfectly white smile!
