Over-the-Counter Whitening

Some research shows Over-the-Counter Whitening gives similar results as the Take-Home type you get from the Dentist. I've had conflicting responses from my patients. If you tried the OTC whitening and it has not given you results, it would not be a bad idea to try the In-Office Whitening, Laser/Gel or Gel, or the Take-Home which you get from the Dentist with custom formed plastic trays. 
I have not had one patient who didn't get results from In-Office or the Take-Home from the office.
