Have you been thinking about getting your teeth whitened but you are unsure whether you should go the “do it yourself” route or the professional route? The first step is to learn more about professional teeth whitening and home methods and how they are different.

If you visit your local pharmacy on a regular basis then you already know you can find many types of teeth whitening systems there for sale. In fact, there are SO many to choose from it may be quite difficult for you to decide which system is going to work the best for your teeth. The price of these systems can be quite cheap all the way to very expensive. One thing I will share with you about over the counter teeth whitening systems is that they are made to treat every person’s teeth exactly the same. Have you looked around lately and noticed that everyone’s teeth are not the same? Why then would you want to buy a “one size helps all” type of teeth whitening system when you could go to your dentist to get a one of a kind teeth whitening system made just for your mouth?

Are you now wondering how the dentist has a one of a kind teeth whitening system just for your mouth? The answer is that the teeth whitening system is for everyone but the way in which it is applied is going to be specific for your mouth only. This is because when you go to your dentist to have your Teeth whitening in Phoenix, he or she is first going to make impressions of your mouth so that you can have dental whitening trays that will fit only your teeth! That is the difference between dental teeth whitening and at home methods of teeth whitening. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think clothing that is made as a “one size fits all” looks that good on anybody. Neither then should a “one size fits all” teeth whitening tray be used on everyone’s mouth.

Once your dentist makes your teeth whitening tray, they will show you the different types of whitening gel they have for sale. Typically these gels are only going to cost you around $40.00 for four tubes. That should be enough to last you anywhere from 6 months to a year. When you run out of the whitening gel, all you have to do is drop by your dentist’s office and pick up some more. It’s the easiest and best way to get those white teeth everyone wants!
