Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is administered by or overseen by a trained dentist. This will ensure that your bleaching results are safe and reliable and will deliver results to meet your cosmetic goals. When used in a dental office setting, bleaching treatments are able to utilize higher-concentration bleaching gels. Having a dental professional oversee the whole process guarantees better results and a brighter smile. Over the counter bleaching systems rely on pamphlet directions and the patient to do the treatment correctly. Despite the fact that over the counter teeth whitening is cheaper and more convenient, the results may not meet your expectations. Dr. Dickert and Dr. Lynn offer an at-home treatment but we will help you with the fit of your bleaching trays and help you understand the step by step directions to help you achieve amazing results.
