At-Home vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening Before and After Marietta, GAWhitening your teeth is a great way to help your smile look healthier, younger, and more attractive. In fact, we frequently recommend teeth whitening treatments before you initiate any other type of cosmetic procedures (such as veneers, bonding, porcelain crowns, etc.) That way we can match the color of your new restoration to a brighter shade.

When it comes to whitening your teeth, you generally have two different options – purchasing a product online or at the store, or having your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist.

Pros and Cons of Commercial Whitening

Commercial teeth whitening products are designed to be safe enough for just about anyone to use. They use gentle ingredients at lower concentrations that can lift lighter stains after a couple of weeks of use.

On the other hand, the application systems tend to be generic, which can lead to uneven whitening as well as gum irritation. You also won’t see as strong of results as something available directly from your dentist (sort of like you would with an over-the-counter medication vs. a prescription-strength drug.)

Professional Teeth Whitening

When you whiten your teeth with a dentist’s help, you have access to safe, better coverage, plus a more concentrated product that can whiten your teeth by several more shades. If you’re using a take-home professional system, you can keep those trays for years and only need the occasional refill of gel from the dentist’s office (making it far more cost-effective!)

If you want the best whitening in the least time, and plan to invest wisely, a professional system is the best choice.

I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!


I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!
