The products you buy in the store can help your teeth become whiter, but they aren't designed to provide the same level of whiteness or the same consistent results as professional whitening system. Professional tooth whitening uses stronger and more effective whitening agents, as well as special trays designed to ensure the agent reaches all the tooth surfaces evenly for more consistent results and a healthier-looking smile overall. Plus, because professional teeth whitening products are used under the guidance of an experienced dentist, the risk of sensitivity is significantly reduces. Pre-whitening exams can also help find tiny fissures or untreated decay that can cause increased sensitivity, treating those areas first for more a more comfortable experience.
