An American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey indicates that 99.7% of adults believe that a smile is an important social asset, which helps explain why tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Professional tooth whitening is particularly effective because dentists are permitted to use hydrogen peroxide at the 6% legal limit. Because the chemical agents used to whiten teeth are so tightly regulated, the whitening power of over-the-counter products is restricted. Professional tooth whitening is also conducted under carefully controlled conditions. While the dentist uses custom trays to deliver whitening agents, over-the-counter trays are often so ill-fitting that gums become irritated and damaged. For this and other reasons, professional tooth whitening is the way to go.
