Should I whiten my teeth with professional products?

Patient trying out shades for professional teeth whitening in Norfolk MAChoosing to whiten your smile in Norfolk, MA using professional products has several advantages. First, you get stronger whitening gel then over-the-counter gel, which often results in fast and drastic results. Additionally, whitening under the supervision of a professional is just a better choice to protect your oral health. 

Does Whitening Damage Teeth?

This is important since exposure to whitening on your enamel (the outside protective layer of your tooth) does weaken the teeth slightly and prolonged use can cause damage. In-office whitening gets the results you want in minutes and then you can get back to protecting your enamel by avoiding acidic foods and drinks and using fluoride toothpastes and/or rinses.

How Can I Help My Teeth Stay White After Teeth Whitening Treatment?

It's best to avoid the foods, beverages, and lifestyle habits that may have contributed to your stained or yellowed teeth in the first place. If you do indulge, be sure to rinse your mouth with water afterward. You can also expect that you'll need to do touch-up whitening treatments in the future. We offer take-home whitening kits just for that purpose.
