Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is Better For You

You think about getting teeth whitening done when you look in the bathroom mirror and see just how dark and brown your teeth have gotten. It doesn’t matter if that’s due to coffee, wine, tobacco, or what have you. You have an unsightly smile that embarrasses you.

If you want to do something about it, don’t bother with the teeth whitening kits you find in stores. Those just aren’t worth it. Instead, call our Fairfax, VA dental office today at 703-552-2530 and schedule professional teeth whitening. Dr. Laura Ki is well trained in cosmetic dentistry treatments like this and can help your smile go from embarrassing to beautiful.

Why Get Teeth Whitening At All?

Why do your teeth get stained? Even though they might look very smooth, your teeth have many tiny grooves and craters in the enamel. Whenever you eat or drink something dark, a minuscule amount gets trapped in those imperfections.

At first, these are so small that you don’t notice anything different. Fast forward a few years (or decades), and all those small stains start to add up. What was once bright and white is not dark, dingy, and brownish.

Professional teeth whitening from a highly trained dentist like Dr. Ki can make your smile much brighter, which can help in several ways:

  • It can take years off your smile and your face.
  • You can feel more confident speaking to groups and meetings.
  • You make better first impressions.
  • Because you look so much better, your self-esteem can get a boost.

By calling Dr. Ki today, you can get professional teeth whitening with Zoom WhiteSpeed. This system can deliver the results you want.

The Problems With Teeth Whitening Kits

While you can buy a teeth whitening kit in stores that’s cheaper, you know how “cheap” can mean a lot more than just a lower price. There are several problems with these kits that make it sensible to ignore them.


Why are you doing this at all? To get whiter teeth. In order to be sold over the counter, teeth whitening kits purposefully make the whitening agents weak. That means going with one of these kits will give you lackluster results. In order to get your teeth truly whiter, you’ll end up having to use these repeatedly.


Teeth whitening is safe — for your teeth. The whitening agents are made to lift stains off enamel, which is tough and durable. That means it can damage your gums if too much gets on them. Since you’ll have to do this all by yourself — and repeatedly if you want good results — then you have a higher chance of hurting your gums.


A dentist takes years of training before they can safely and accurately use cosmetic dentistry treatments like teeth whitening. But with teeth whitening kits, you have to be the dentist. That means you have to read the instructions on the side of the box for making your teeth look better. Here’s hoping you don’t make any mistakes and understand those instructions to the letter.
