What are the Differences Between Professional In-Office Whitening and Professional At-Home Whitening?

Posted .

If you are interested in whitening your smile but you’re not sure if you want to use a professional in-office or at-home treatment, then our dentist, Dr. Peter D Kim, is more than happy to help you. Both of these treatments can help you reach the beautiful smile you desire. Today, he is happy to discuss the differences between both treatments so you can make the best decision for your smile.

Professional in-office whitening

Professional in-office whitening involves using whitening gel and a special dental light to whiten the smile. Your dentist will paint the solution onto your teeth and will activate it with the light. This can safely remove stubborn stains and whiten your smile many shades within one quick appointment at our office.

Professional at-home whitening

A professional at-home whitening treatment can also whiten your smile many shades. However, this treatment will require a longer amount of time to complete. Typically, treatments like these can take weeks or months, depending on the severity of your tooth stains. But, you can whiten your smile within the walls of your own home and achieve the results you want safely.
