Are you interested in whitening your smile but you’re not sure if you want to use in-office or over-the-counter whitening treatments? If so, our dentist, Dr. Yong Eon Park, is more than happy to help you! The more you know about the treatments, the better chance you have of choosing the right treatment for your smile. So, he would like to help you by explaining the differences between and details of both treatment options.

Professional in-office teeth whitening

An in-office whitening treatment can eliminate your minor and stubborn tooth stains to brighten your smile many shades. In fact, it can do all this within one quick appointment at our office. Our dentist will paint the whitening solution onto your teeth and activate it with a special light. This can safely give you the results you desire for a long period of time.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening

An over-the-counter whitening treatment can brighten your smile one or more shades. There are many treatment options available, like whitening toothpaste, whitening gel, and more. It’s important to follow the instructions closely because if you misuse the treatment, you can harm your smile. These treatments allow you to whiten your smile at home. They might take weeks or months to complete and they might be a little messy, but they can remove minor surface stains from the enamel.
