Is Professional Teeth-Whitening Worth the Cost?
We can tell you this with confidence: Professional teeth whitening with the KöR® Whitening System provides much better results than you are likely to find with some mix of peroxide strips and teeth-whitening toothpaste. Nonetheless, the principle that governs both solutions is basically the same. Over-the-counter strips, gels, mouthwash, and toothpaste contain a small amount of bleaching chemical. Generally, this is hydrogen peroxide. The gels that we use, however, are much stronger than the store-bought varieties and their potency is increased by the method by which we apply it.
The store-bought solutions are prohibited from containing as much of the active ingredient as those available to dentists. There is a chance that someone could injure themselves if they used too much or applied it improperly. Professional dentists know what they’re doing and can use more of the solution with safer (and better) results.
Additionally, store-bought solutions come in various strengths none of the which as strong as professional-grade options.
