You've finally made the decision to freshen up your smile. You want that bright white look for sure but now you need to make one more important decision - take-home whitening or in-chair whitening? There are benefits to both options and even some types of whitening that involve a combination of the two. Below we'll delve into the facts you need to know to make the right decision for you.
Take-Home Versus In-Chair Whitening
The world of whitening can be a daunting journey. Not because of the treatment ahead, that's pretty straightforward, but due to the vast amounts of information out there. It can be difficult to wade through the fluff and find what's important to you. That's what we're here to do! Teeth whitening can be a super effective and relative cost efficient way to hugely improve the appearance of your smile. It's been recorded that your smile is the first thing a person notices and so getting the most out of your smile will give you a huge advantage when trying to make the best first impression.
Benefits of take-home whitening
Take-home whitening options can often be cheaper and much more accessible. They can also be extremely convenient for those looking to maintain their whitening on the go.
Convenience of a home whitening system
Many whitening enthusiasts will know that the best way to keep your bright white smile maintained is to top up with a home whitening gel every so often. This is often recommended following whichever option you go for originally. However, there is also the case of convenience. When you choose to opt for the take-home treatment you are able to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. This means that you won't need to travel to the dental surgery after your initial consultation and moulds are taken.
Take-home treatment is generally a cheaper treatment than in-chair laser whitening. This is largely due to the treatment needing less time spent in the surgery. The results, however, are still brilliant.
Benefits of In-Chair Laser Whitening
Taking the in-chair laser tooth whitening puts you in the hands of our superbly trained experts who will ensure your teeth look fantastic at the end of your journey.
See Results Faster
With in-chair whitening you can see results after just one appointment. You'll then be given special activators that will further whiten your teeth in the coming days.

Why Choose a Dental Professional for Your Teeth Whitening?
With more than 8 million Brits having admitted to choosing whitening treatments from illegal sources last year, it is clearly a very common occurrence. Some of the reviews of these treatments are truly horrific. Deep blisters, infected gums and lips so swollen they are stuck together are just some of the risks that you are taking when using these illegal products. When you go to a dental professional for teeth whitening many precautions are taken before even offering you the treatments. You are given a thorough examination to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and in the right shape to take the treatment. The whitening solution itself is sourced reliably from safe labs. When you go through illegal salons they often use a substandard whitening gel. They will be careless in checking for the health of your teeth. They are not regulated and so have no need to do these things. We strongly advise that you do not use these services.
