Dental Survey: Do Dentists Recommend Teeth Whitening At-Home?

Dentists prescribe in home teeth whiteningDentists are still the trusted source for patients who want whiter teeth, even though whitening toothpaste and rinses, and over-the-counter teeth bleaching kits are easily available to consumers.

Of course, some tooth stains don’t respond to these methods, and every case is different.

The Wealthy Dentist wanted to know what dentists tell their patients when asked about the best way to whiten their teeth.

Here’s what our survey asked:

What method of teeth whitening do you most recommend for your patients?

The results were overwhelmingly in favor of dentist-prescribed in-home tooth whitening.

Only 4% of dentists recommend over-the-counter whitening products; and only 9% recommend in-office tooth whitening from a dentist.

Here’s what dentists had to say about in-home, dentist-prescribed teeth whitening:
