- At TeethWhiteningReviews.com, our aim is to give readers an authentic and unbiased information about teeth whitening, which is why we won't pinpoint a particular product and label it the best or most effective. However, in the product reviews
section of this site, you'll find real user feedback on products and methods - and what has and hasn't worked for them. The fact is there has been a lot of hype about professional tooth whitening systems that "work wonders", while in reality, not a single professional tooth whitening system has proved to be the most effective. Your needs and your dentist are the best places to start reviewing whitening systems.
What Dental Publications Say
You might think about researching magazines that are designed for professional dentists, but there are a lot of dental publications and many feature reports detailing the clinical trials of various professional tooth whitening products. Many of these reports and research materials, however, are sponsored by the manufacturers of such products, so not much can be said about their credibility. Also the majority of studies are designed to reach statistical conclusions, which is different from the side-by-side comparisons that consumers might find useful. If you think you might want to make a dramatic difference in the whiteness of your smile, it's best to either consult your dentist or find a dentist that specializes in cosmetic procedures - and not focus merely on choosing the best whitening system.
Pick the Best Dentist
There are a number of factors that determine the success of any teeth whitening procedure, including the present state of your dental health. That's the most important reason to consult a dentist if you're planning on professional whitening.
In general, patients having a darker set of teeth have shown better results than people with lighter teeth. Also, the degree of relapse of tooth whitening achieved will vary from patient to patient. Some patients are able to sustain their results for a longer time than others. As a matter of fact, even the different teeth in a patient's mouth show different results, despite using the same product. Hence, the results of professional tooth whitening products
are very subjective. Besides these factors, the results also depend on the way your dentist uses the whitener. Certain professional tooth whitening products
are to be used in a specific way. The results of the whitening system can be affected by the dentist's adherence to the protocol as prescribed by the manufacturer.
Ideally, you should focus on finding the best dentist for tooth whitening rather than looking for the best professional tooth whitening system in the market. The results depend on how skilled your dentist is and how he or she uses the tooth whitening system.
While choosing dentists you should keep the following things in mind:
- The experience of the dentist in this field
- Number of teeth whitening treatments performed
- Number of teeth whitening methods available
- Testimonials and results of previous patients
Once you find the best dentist for tooth whitening, let the dentist decide the best tooth whitening system for you.
