Smiles around the world! It’s one of the most universal languages to signify happiness, comfort and community. We’ve all got one. But not all smiles are created equal.

According to the American Association of Orthodontics, if people were given the option to improve one thing about their smile, 90% of patients chose teeth whitening. It’s one of the easiest things to fix about one’s own smile. You see self-whitening kits all over stores. But is it worth the price?

There are many causes that affect the color of your teeth. Some are in our control and others are not. Luckily, we all have the option to correct it. There are two camps to whitening your teeth. The cheaper and most common route is a self-whitening kit. These run about $50 or so. The other option is getting your teeth whitened at your local dentist. This costs a bit more than your average kit, but the added benefits of getting it done professionally can save you money in the long run.

The Dental Associates Blog puts it well, “The main benefit of professional teeth whitening is that the whitening occurs much faster than the multiple kits often required to achieve and maintain whitening from at-home solutions.” At the professional level, teeth whitening takes a shorter amount of time, saves you money in the long-run and keeps your teeth whiter for longer.
