Here at McCloy Dental, it will come as no surprise to know that we recommend getting your teeth professionally whitened. The primary reasons for this being:
1. Professional teeth whitening will get you better results
Differences between going for a professional approach or home application to teeth whitening can be significant, and choice of application depends on individual research, requirements, budget and preferences.
In our experience, however, the most significant and important reasons for choosing to have your teeth whitened professionally versus home-use solutions, is that it provides the all-important peace of mind factor regarding the safety of ingredients and application, as well as the speed of desired results.
2. A dentist knows what they’re doing
It seems obvious, but sometimes the obvious bears restating. No matter how well researched you are, or how much your best friend swears by a DIY method, a good dentist understands the whitening process more.
With the construction of appropriate mouth trays, dentists can maintain the active ingredient on the tooth surface where it needs to work, and we can reduce the effect on the gums, where the bleaching agent can burn.
Not all teeth are alike, and not all methods will be suitable for your teeth. Excessive, unprofessional bleaching can weaken your teeth and actually lead to your teeth being more prone to discolouration in the future.

As with any cosmetic or medical procedure, it’s important to remember that you and your body are unique and will require different approaches to get the best results for you.
