Teeth Whitening: DYI or Visit a Cosmetic Dentist in Wilkes Barre, PA?

“Professional whitening treatments get the thumbs up from the ADA for a variety of reasons. First, in-office treatments usually clean the patient’s teeth and gums before proceeding, which is how any dental procedures- including home whitening treatments- should start in the first place. Second, these treatments are much safer because they use the best tools, employ the right techniques, and are well-regulated by authorities like the ADA. Finally, in-office whitening treatments produce better results since they can deal with all types of tooth stains.

Tooth stains are generally classified as either extrinsic (i.e. stains that affect the outer layer or enamel of the teeth) or intrinsic (i.e. those that penetrate the inner structure or dentin).
