If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between in-office whitening and using the products you can buy at the grocery store, you’re not alone. While there difference may not be readily apparent, the fact of the matter is that having your teeth whitened here at Clear Lake Dental in Clearlake, California is far more effective and quick than whitening your teeth with at-home solutions.

Let’s examine why that is.

Fixes what over-the-counter can’t

Sometimes, after years of tobacco use or drinking coffee, the enamel of your teeth will become stained so deeply that over-the-counter whitening solutions just can’t fix the problem. This is because only Dr. James Kinsel has access to the most powerful whitening tools, since they have to be administered in-office to ensure patient safety.

It’s quick

You can go to the store and buy a whitening kit that promises a better smile over a few weeks, or a few days. But when you come into our office for whitening, your smile will be white and beautiful again after just one appointment.

It’s less of a hassle

Getting the whitening strips on your teeth just so or making sure the whitening trays aren’t overflowing with too much gel is a hassle. When you have in-office whitening performed, you don’t have to do anything except relax in the chair.

Teeth whitening can be done quickly and efficiently in an office, and if you have teeth that are in desperate need of a face lift, call us today at 707-994-9414 to schedule an appointment.
