Why Get Professional Teeth Whitening?

Philadelphia PA Cosmetic Dental Treatments

With so many over-the-counter and DIY bleaching treatments out there, professional teeth whitening can seem like a waste of money.

But the evidence is clear that going the expert route is the safest and most effective way to get a whiter smile.

OTC Teeth Whitening Products: The Real Waste of Money?

Drugstore dental bleaching products are limited in terms of what they can do. Most of them don’t actually lighten tooth color. Instead, they lift shallow surface stains with the help of abrasives like charcoal and baking soda.

Items that do contain bleach have only small amounts of hydrogen peroxide. This will lighten tooth color, but you’d have to use so much for such a long time that it may hurt your gums before it makes a big difference on your teeth.

DIY whitening products are handy for whitening teeth to a small degree. They’re also good for maintaining a tooth shade you’re already happy with.

But if you want measurable results, then you need a teeth bleaching method that works. Wasting money on countless ineffective drugstore products will only discourage you from achieving your dream smile.

Professional Teeth Bleaching: Safe and Successful

For the best teeth whitening in Philadelphia, you need to see a cosmetic dentist.

Professional bleaching uses stronger agents like carbamide peroxide at prescription-strength levels. The bleach is carefully applied by a trained professional so that it doesn’t bother your gums. Next, a special light helps speed up the process, giving you instant and noticeable results.

    Dentists on the Square is great. I’ve had a lot of work done, and they are by far the best practice I’ve been to. They are preventative in mindset, which makes a huge difference to minimize issues before they are large scale problems. The team collaborates and they are very attentive. And now I walk out after a cleaning with much whiter teeth! My hygienist is amazing!

    This was my best experience at a dentist office. The staff was AWESOME!!!!. I had some major dental work done and still the experience was wonderful. Thanks, Bonnie for the warm welcome.

  • Jackie E.

    DOTS is fantastic! I’ve been a long time patient and have referred many friends. Their staff and doctors are attentive, caring and always willing to sit down and plan out treatment and talk through your benefits. Thank you!

  • Heidi S.

    They actually have me excited to get implants. The staff is amazing and extremely kind. Very thorough and comprehensible, even with such a detailed process. Thank you!! I’m very happy to have been recommended to come here.

  • Candace V.

    I highly recommend! The staff is really friendly and nice. I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Roberts and Vince and they are great. I was really nervous to have that type of treatment but they reassured me that I would be okay and made it a good experience. It is so worth it!

  • Angela B.

    My first appointment at DOTS was pretty incredible. I had a traumatic experience at my last dentist three years ago that resulted in my 1) developing severe anxiety around going to the dentist and 2) me putting off my dental health for a while. Everyone at DOTS was incredible and super supportive. Shoutout to the hygienist and dentists there that get their patients through the appointments with humor and professionalism. I think I might actually look forward to the dentist now!

  • Jake P.
