The benefits of a professional whitening treatment
At our clinic, we prefer the whitening treatment with personalized aligners, perfectly adapted to the dentition of the patient. Aligners can be worn at any time of the day, for a predetermined period and duration of treatment by the dentist. This treatment is done by the patient in the comfort of his home and at the time that suits him, while following the advice of your dentist and your hygienist.
When compared to retails whitening products, professional whitening treatment is advantageous in:
EFFECTIVENESS: As part of a professional treatment, the concentration of bleaching agent (peroxide) in the products used is controlled. In addition, the total duration of treatment and the duration of daily applications are precisely planned by your dentist, which helps to achieve results that meet your expectations.
SAFETY: Since you are doing the treatment under the supervision of your dentist and following his instructions, the risk of damaging the teeth and gums is limited, as can be the case with retails products used without supervision. from a professional. In addition, treatment that is poorly performed or performed despite certain contraindications may aggravate or create a problem that is already present in the dentition or gums.
Retails products: use with caution
Since the peroxide concentration of the retails products can varies, and since the doses used are not controlled by a professional, all of these products cannot guarantee the same results as those obtained as part of a professional treatment.
In addition, it is essential to know that retails products should never be used without the advice of a dentist, who will make sure that their use is safe for you!
