Why You Should Get A Professional Teeth Whitening

When it comes to tooth discoloration, a variety of factors come into play. From coffee and dark cola to intrinsic factors such as when the inner structure of the tooth decays, maintaining a perfectly white smile is often a difficult task. Quite often, patients suffering from tooth discoloration turn to store-bought kits to brighten their smiles.

However, the safest and most efficient way to whiten teeth is through professional teeth whitening with your cosmetic dentist. In short, professional teeth whitening is a sound solution to discoloration, and Sunrise Smile Design can help!

In our office, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening to our Phoenix patients! As a member of the American Dental Association, highly-trained dentist Dr. Campbell strives to provide the best treatment to his patients. Since store-bought kits can present unwanted results, he encourages patients to come in for professional teeth whitening.

Take a moment to learn more about these store-bought kits and why you should have your teeth whitened by a professional—we’re happy to fill you in.


Due to their lower prices and ease of use, store-bought or over-the-counter whitening kits are usually a patient’s first choice for whitening teeth. While this may seem easy and beneficial, these DIY kits can actually be harmful to your teeth when used incorrectly. Without the supervision of an experienced professional, it’s easy to get unwanted results.

For instance, some over-the-counter whitening trays won’t fit properly, which can result in the bleaching gel leaking and irritating your gums. You can also overdo the whitening, leaving your teeth with a more transparent look than a shining white smile.


In contrast to that of DIY whitening kits, professional teeth whitening can be supervised by your dentist. Plenty of dentists, like Dr. Campbell, even offer in-office and take-home whitening kits for patients who’d rather do it on their own time—and both are better options than their store-bought counterparts.

In regards to our take-home kits, patients can rest assured they won’t irritate gums or over bleach. Dr. Campbell will give you specific bleaching directions, and the bleaching trays are custom made to fit each patient’s teeth. Within a few weeks of use, patients will notice significantly whiter teeth. However, these results still don’t beat our in-office professional teeth whitening.

Using Ultradent® Teeth Whitening, patients can achieve whiter and brighter smiles in just one appointment! With the short process and supervision of Dr. Campbell, our in-office teeth whitening is by far the best option. We’re sure you won’t find a safer, more effective whitening system than this!


As you can see, professional teeth whitening is a far better option than DIY kits. By having your teeth whitened in-office, or using a kit from Dr. Campbell, you’ll avoid the potential harm of store-bought kits while attaining an incredibly white smile!

If you’re interested in having your teeth professionally whitened, give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
