Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

Looking for a brighter smile but don’t know how to get it? We’ve put together a guide on teeth whitening that can help you decide which whitening option is best for you.

Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’re looking for dramatic results, professional whitening is for you. At Romeoville Dental Center, our whitening kit includes custom-made whitening trays and professional-strength gel. Take your kit home and whiten on our recommended schedule to see a brighter, whiter smile. At your initial appointment we’ll go over how to use the trays and gel at home and when you should wear them. Other than that, you are able to tailor your whitening to fit your schedule. Because we provide you with the kit, we’re always willing to see you for adjustments if you feel like the trays aren’t fitting quite right.

Professional whitening is generally more expensive than over-the-counter whitening, but it is definitely the most effective. The whitening gel is stronger, so you’ll see more dramatic results than you will with over-the-counter options.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

If cost is a concern for you, over-the-counter whitening can still give you a beautiful smile on a smaller budget. There are a number of over-the-counter whitening options that can deliver good results, including strips, pens, pastes, rinses, and combination kits. These options may brighten your smile, but they are not going to be as effective as the treatments provided by your dentist. You may also not get the dramatic results you’re hoping for. But if you have an important event coming up and need a quick, small fix, over-the-counter options are great and budget-friendly.

If you’re interested in learning more about teeth whitening options, make an appointment with us today. We can discuss what is the best course of treatment for you. We can also discuss payment options if you’re concerned about fitting whitening into your budget. At Romeoville Dental Center, we are dedicated to providing you with the best care to get you the smile of your dreams.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
