A quality cosmetic dentist will likely offer you many tooth whitening options. This includes both in-office tooth whitening and professional-strength at-home tooth whitening. Which one is right for you depends on what you are looking for from your tooth whitening.

In-office tooth whitening might be right for you if you are looking for:

  • Immediate results
  • Moderate whitening

In office whitening gives results in less than an hour, but the extent of whitening is limited. Dr. Pameal Marzban offers in-office whitening with Boost tooth whitening.

At-home whitening is better for people who are looking for:

  • The best results
  • Results that appear gradually
  • Maintaining results over time

At-home whitening will give visible results within a few days of starting treatment, and you should reach full results within a few weeks.

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to pick just one option. You can combine at-home and in-office whitening to experience the benefits of both. In fact, it’s often recommended to add at least intermittent at-home whitening to your in-office procedure so you don’t have to come in for additional procedures, but maintain your white, youthful smile.
