Home Vs Laser Teeth Whitening at Dentist
What’s Best – Home or Laser Teeth Whitening?
The teeth whitening sector has experienced significant growth in recent years, both through the In-Surgery Laser process as well as with home Teeth Whitening products.
While many specialized salons for teeth whitening have opened throughout the US and Europe people can also get exactly the same results by using those products that can perfectly whiten teeth at home and can be easily found in the market too.
Choosing whitening products can be an issue as not all of them are equal in terms of quality.
However, upon careful examination and selection the buyer can purchase an excellent whitening product and achieve professional results at home.
Advantages With Home Teeth Whitening Kits
As far as cost and comfort are concerned, the home method is by far better than the In-surgery method. You can do it on your own from the comfort of your home, following simple instructions and saving the costs (and the need for transport).
The cost for having the whitening done through In-surgery Laser is rather high, and up to approximately £400 ($600).
In terms of easiness, the In-surgery Laser teeth whitening treatment is apparently done by a specialist, but you are still required to do follow-up work on your own. This means that the two approaches are not so very different in this regard.
As for effectiveness, many people are wondering whether In-surgery Laser treatment for teeth whitening is more effective than a home whitening kit.
The answer is somewhat surprising: In fact, In-surgery Laser does not really provide much better results or in a much faster time frame.
Home whitening kits used to require much longer time than In-surgery Laser treatment, but nowadays things have become much faster.
For example, a kit like Dr Georges Dental White includes a handheld Laser light which can be used for blue light treatment – like the In-surgery method.
Given that the Laser light has an activating effect on the whitening gel, it can speed up the process of whitening by approximately 6 times. Thus a week’s whitening without the Laser light can now be done in just one day / one session, during home treatment.
It might still take a bit more time with the home whitening kit, but the result will be pretty much the same, since even the whitening gel of Smile 4 You Dental White, is the same as the one used by dentists for the In-surgery treatment.
So you have both the gel and the Laser light which give pretty much the same results, in almost the same time. Yet the savings for doing it with a self-use kit are quite significant.
