Why Shouldn’t I Just Get Over-The-Counter Tooth Whitening?
General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta
Posted: November 8, 2013
At Focus on Smiles, we know that a bright, white, shining smile is a crucial element of your self-confidence. And we also know that Edmonton-area patients have a lot of tooth whitening options. Over-the-counter products you can buy at the drug store seem to offer a convenient option.
The reality, however, is that the professional tooth cleaning you’ll receive at our office is vastly superior to any over-the-counter products.
Why is this? When Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko performs your tooth whitening, she can create a treatment plan that is custom-crafted for your teeth. This means our Edmonton-area patients get whitening that is built around their specific needs.
By contrast, over-the-counter, at-home tooth whitening products are mass produced for a wide audience. The trays or strips you buy at the store are not custom-made.
This means they won’t have a tight, precise fit to your teeth. In turn, this can result in an inconsistent whitening experience that leaves some teeth completely untouched.
Dr. Fialka-Eshenko provides a number of tooth whitening options, including trays you can take home if you’re looking for a convenient treatment. You can rely on Dr. Fialka-Eshenko’s years of experience to leave you with the shade of white you’ve long desired.
