Pros and Cons of At-Home Teeth Whitening Vs Dr. Nick's Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service because it can easily improve the appearance of your smile. While there are several whitening products you can use at home, they often take a long time to show results.

Dr. Nick's Professional teeth whitening is performed in the office. We use a bleaching agent that will break up stains on your teeth and lighten the color of your enamel. 

Pros & Cons At-Home Teeth Whitening


  • At-home whitening kits are less expensive than in-office teeth whitening.
  • The kit is easy to use.
  • It can be worn while you sleep or as per the recommendation of the dentist.
  • It has been proven effective.


  • However, it's important to remember that at-home teeth whitening kits aren't as effective as in-office whitening.
  • Another downside to at-home kits is that they take much longer to produce noticeable results.
  • At-home kits only brighten the teeth a few shades.
  • The trays and gels might be uncomfortable to wear
  • Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits contain lower concentrations of whitening gel than professional teeth whitening systems.
  • You should avoid whitening your teeth if you have sensitive teeth or gums, as they could experience increased sensitivity.
  •  Keep in mind that if you whiten your teeth at home, you could damage your soft tissue and gums.
