It might be tempting to buy a do it yourself kit to whiten your teeth. However, this can do a lot of harm, and it is always advisable to visit a dentist if you would like to undertake this procedure. A dentist will be in the best position to advise you and to carry out the treatment safely.

Price is often the factor that attracts people to online tooth whitening kits. It will be significantly cheaper than going to a dentist and you will just apply it yourself at home. There can be all kinds of side effects though, especially sensitive teeth – this procedure may cause some sensitivity, but it can get very bad with DIY kits.

A dentist will be able to make sure you teeth arrive at the right shade, and you will discuss this shade beforehand. It is all too easy to make a mistake and take your teeth a shade too white if you have a home whitening kit.
