If you opt for at-home whitening strips, you must wear them twice per day, anywhere between one week to one month at a time. Plus, these strips can make your teeth hurt and cause them to be more sensitive to hot and cold beverages.
That’s because there’s one common problem with DIY teeth whitening -- many teeth whitening strips or solutions contain hydrogen peroxide. Although hydrogen peroxide can remove stains, it can also leave you with pain or sensitivity. The dental strips you get from the store are also often too mild to make a visible difference.
With professional teeth whitening, the results are instantaneous and can last up to 12 months, plus the procedure doesn’t typically cause tooth sensitivity.
