Go into any grocery store across the country and you’ll likely see a plethora of tooth whitening products. With so many of these products available, it seems a bit odd that we’d tell you to come in and see Dr. Barbara Lewis-Heywood at his office in Riverside Dental & Beauty Spa in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, right?

Well, not really. Allow us to explain while professional whitening is worth it.

Not all teeth stains are equal

The most important thing to remember is that there are varying degrees of stained teeth. Some stains are minor, while others penetrate deeper into the enamel. For minor stains, over-the-counter whitening products aren’t a terrible choice. However, some stains really need professional help to be removed.

It’s quicker

The biggest benefit from professional whitening is just how quickly it’s completed. At-home whitening treatments take a while to whiten your teeth. When you come to our office for teeth whitening, you can leave with the smile at the shade you want in as little as one appointment.

While it may not seem as beneficial at first, professional whitening will get your teeth whiter quicker – and with less hassle – than at-home whitening. You don’t have to worry about the whitening trays and gels, or worry about making sure they don’t spill on your gums. You simply come to the office sit back, relax, and leave with a beautiful smile.
