If you want to brighten your dull smile or do something about yellow teeth, you may be tempted to try a take-home teeth whitening kit available in your drug store. But how do these kits compare to professional teeth whitening in Bangor, ME? The answer is that in every way, professional whitening is superior to over-the-counter products.


Personalized Whitening Solutions

Store-bought teeth whitening kits are purposely designed to be one-size-fits-all. The concentration of the whitening agent is also lower so that it can be used safely by the widest number of consumers.

Because professional teeth whitening is done under our supervision, however, we can adjust the potency of whiteners to fit your specific needs.

Customized Whitening Trays

Generic teeth whitening kits include boil-and-bite trays that may not offer the total coverage you need for consistent results. 

Take-home whitening kits include a customized teeth whitening tray that we make using impressions of your teeth for a snug fit, and beautiful, uniform results.

We Offer Professional Support

When you purchase a store-bought whitening kit, you’re pretty much on your own. But choosing a professional teeth whitening kit in Bangor, ME includes support from our dental team should you experience sensitivity or not see the results you want. 

Schedule Your Next Dental Cleaning

Jump starting your professional whitening with a thorough dental cleaning is always a good idea. We remove plaque and tartar that can inhibit whitening results and leave you with a fresh, bright smile.

Please call Maine Family Dental to schedule your dental appointment.
