If you've considered teeth whitening treatment to brighten your smile, you might wonder if an in-office or take-home treatment is better. The answer really depends on what you're looking for. Here's what you should consider when choosing the best teeth bleaching option in Vancouver for your smile.

How Fast Do You Need Results?

Do you have a wedding, reunion, or vacation coming up that you want to look your best for? What is your timeline?

Patients who are looking for immediate results may benefit most from an in-office teeth whitening treatment. In-office teeth whitening is a fast, safe, and effective option that will give you results right away. You'll leave your dentist with a smile that is six shades brighter than when you arrived.

In-office whitening treatment starts with a protective barrier your dentist places around your gums and soft tissues. Then the application of a high strength whitening gel does the work of brightening your smile. Fluoride treatment at the end helps to reduce any tooth sensitivity you might experience.

You can complete in-office teeth whitening in around 60 to 90 minutes, so you'll be able to enjoy your whiter, brighter smile the same day.

Do You Have More Time and Appreciate Flexibility?

If you have one to two weeks open for brightening your smile, you might like the freedom of bleaching your teeth at home with a custom take-home teeth whitening kit. Your dentist creates bleaching trays made just for you by taking impressions of your teeth.

You'll use these trays at home when it's most convenient for you to whiten your teeth over a period of one to two weeks. In the future, you'll have your trays available to bleach your teeth whenever you like.
