Marketing Dental Products

In our consumer-driven society, you’ll find marketing everywhere. There are billboards you pass while driving to work, ads that pop up when you’re surfing the web and flyers that are stuffed in your mailbox. Sometimes, it can be hard to separate what’s real and what’s fancy marketing. In the dental world, teeth whitening products are heavily marketed. Often consumers are promised results that are dramatic, fast, and cheap.

Whitening Strips

One of these products are whitening strips that you can purchase at the drugstore or grocery store. While some teeth whitening strips can help lift stains, they’re not as effective as the kind of treatment you’ll get at a dental office. Your dentist will use a more powerful bleaching agent. So the treatment won’t cost much, but the results won’t be fast or dramatic. On top of that, these whitening strips come with a risk of uneven results, tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

Whitening Toothpaste

Another product marketed to whiten teeth is whitening toothpaste. It’s a similar story here. Some whitening toothpastes may brighten your smile a bit, but they can only help slightly to fix surface-level stains. If your stains reach deeper than that, the toothpaste won’t be effective. You haven’t really wasted your money though. You need to use toothpaste to brush your teeth and whitening toothpaste isn’t much more than the basic variety. However, again, the results will not be dramatic and whitening toothpaste takes even longer to show noticeable results than whitening strips.

Professional Teeth Whitening

If you want to effectively whiten your teeth, North Richland Hills Dentistry offers in-office teeth whitening. In only an hour, you’ll see a dramatic improvement in the whiteness of your teeth. This is not a marketing ploy. It’s a fact that comes from using a high-quality, concentrated bleaching gel that will be professionally applied by our experienced team to reach every part of your teeth. It isn’t as cheap as whitening strips or toothpaste, but the results are beautiful and long-lasting.
