Professional Tooth Whitening is much better for your teeth and your gums. Because the procedure is administered by a dentist, and not by you in your bathroom, the tooth whitening process is monitored. This avoids unnecessary overuse.

Using too much professional tooth whitening product can cause problems for your teeth and gums. Use too much of it and you won’t want to smile. Kind of ironic considering that’s the reason you started whitening your teeth in the first place.

What is Professional Tooth Whitening?

Custom Made Take Home Whitening Trays

Unlike those over the counter products that you get at your local pharmacy, professional teeth whitening products are prescription only. If you and your cosmetic dentist in Chicago opt for custom-made whitening trays that you take home, the gel that you use will be stronger than what you find in those strips, pastes, gels, and rinses.

Most tooth whitening products include hydrogen peroxide as the whitening agent, however, the product you receive from Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor or Dr. Verena Phillips is much stronger giving you a much brighter smile in as little as two weeks.
