Tooth Whitening: In-Office vs. DIY

teeth whitening Daly City

If you would like to improve your smile with teeth whitening, the first step is deciding how you’ll do it. At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures.

There are lots of whitening products out there, but what they have in common is a peroxide-based active ingredient. The difference lies in the strength of the bleaching solution and method of delivery. Professional-strength whitening uses a higher concentration of peroxide. In other words, it is stronger.

At-home, do-it-yourself whitening with products you can buy at the grocery store are generally less expensive. They are also not as effective. Even more concerning, the whitening systems don’t protect gum tissue as well as professional techniques.

In-office whitening, on the other hand, is much safer for the soft tissues in the mouth. The results are superior and can usually be achieved in a single appointment.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City our in-office teeth whitening has improved the smiles of people throughout San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay, who also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment, and find out how we can improve your smile!
