BMB Dental Clinic

Which technique is better: home bleaching or chairside?

Both techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it really depends on your preference. At BMB Dental Clinic, we offer both chairside bleaching and home bleaching kits, and we encourage our patients to choose the method that’s best for them. 

Home Bleaching vs Chairside

Chairside bleaching generally offers faster and more dramatic results, but you do have to be in the dental clinic for us to perform this service. Additionally, the whitening gel used in chairside bleaching is often more potent, which may cause some patients to have tooth sensitivity. 

Home bleaching whitening gel is less potent, meaning less tooth sensitivity in some cases. And you can repeat whitening treatments as necessary at leisure to achieve the desired shade. There’s no need to see a dentist or wait in your dentist’s clinic for results. 

With either method, patients can create a brighter smile with little effort or expense, making teeth whitening a great option for making smile improvements. 

What about Patients with Sensitive Teeth?

Patients with sensitive teeth can still whiten their teeth. However, we recommend using sensitive-reducing toothpaste for a while first to lower your tooth sensitivity as much as you can. We also recommend home bleaching in those cases since the concentration is less potent.
