Just one visit to Steinbach Dental can turn your teeth from faded to fantastic in minutes.

A recent dental industry survey found that more than half of respondents believed teeth whitening products and procedures, like Teeth Whiteningthose offered at Steinbach Dental, yield more impressive results than the gels, strips and toothpastes available over-the-counter. This is true - the overall quality of in-office whitening is unmatched. But what are the other benefits to whitening your teeth in a dentist's chair?

Instant and lasting results

Because they are less concentrated, store-bought whitening treatments can take weeks or months before you'll see a noticeable difference. In-office dental whitening can make your teeth six to ten shades brighter at the end of just one 30 to 60-minute appointment. The products used at your Brookfield dental office also keep your teeth whiter much longer than the store-bought brands, so there will be no need for a follow-up treatment for months or even years.

Safety and expertise 

The quality and potency of the in-office whitening can't be replicated from store-bought merchandise. The benefit of working directly with your Southeastern Wisconsin dentist is even more valuable. It means that you are whitening your teeth safely as well as effectively. Because teeth have tiny, almost invisible pores on their surface, the enamel can be permanently damaged if whitening gels or strips are left on too long. This can result in sensitivity or premature decay. The whitening solutions can also be irritating to gum tissue, even causing chemical burns in some cases. At Steinbach Dental, a buffer is placed between your teeth and gums to prevent the tissue from being exposed to the bleaching products. Your whole mouth will also be thoroughly evaluated before your whitening procedure so that potential problems can be identified and corrected ahead of time.


It's no secret that whitening your teeth at home is initially cheaper than in-office procedures. However, the quality and durability of the products at a dental office means that the money you spend up front will likely be less than if you constantly needed a new tube of toothpaste or another package of whitening strips.
