At Home Whitening vs. Professional Whitening

The below article in the Wilkes-Barre Time Leader newspaper eludes to the fact that over the counter whitening products are as good as in office whitening. It is true that the whitening ingredients ( peroxide) are the same, the application technique isn’t. It’s like at home hair color vs. having you hair colored in a salon. Over the counter whiteners are not as customized to fit the teeth, therefore color changes may not be uniform. Sensitivity may also be an issue when these whiteners come in contact with the gums. When done by a professional the results are better and longer lasting.
