When you mention Da Vinci Teeth Whitening System here, I am assuming you are using a take home system with the light and the brush on whitening gel. If it is take home or done in a spa or beauty salon, the concentration of bleach will be far less than when used by a professional in the dental office.  He is a dentist and really any chairside whitening sytsem will be far better than a take home whitening system. You should make an appointment with your dentist and discuss the condition of your teeth and stains or coloring you want changed and what results you expect. He can determine what system would work for you,  There are many on the market to choose from and most dentists offer more than one product.

Teeth whitening success depends mostly on the type of teeth than what system you use

Teeth whitening success depends mostly on the type of teeth than what system you use. You can have same product work differently on two people. Also over the counter type is generally not as effective and strong. Best thing to do is to go to a cosmetic dentist for a consultation and ask your questions and discuss your concerns before the procedure, so that you do not spend time and money and not get the ideal result.

Da Vinci whitening system comparing to professional whitening

OTC whitening systems are always weaker than any professional system. In professional systems you can choose between the in-office and home bleaching systems. Based on my professional experience I prefer and advocate for home bleaching. There are multiple reasons for that: it has less sensitivity, gives more long-lasting and stable results, patients have trays and can do a touch-up when they need, they have various concentrations. You should check with your dentist what professional whitening systems they have in the office.

I do not have any experience with the Da Vinci Teeth Whitening System, but if it is an over-the-counter product, it will be weaker than the In-Office systems such as ZOOM or BriteSmile. That's not to say you won't be pleased. It might be just enough for you depending on the amount of staining/yellowing present.

Teeth whiting is part science, part product choice and a large part art.

After more that twenty years of whitening teeth, the results depend FAR less on what brand, and far MORE on what your teeth are like, and what style of whitening will be the most comfortable as well as the most potent.

I just saw a patient in my office this week who used Da Vinci last year. She looks like she has never whitened her teeth. I would say it's more the fault of the office and the staff, and less so for the brand.

We spent a lot of time looking at what option would give her great results, we spoke a lot about what to expect, and what would fit in with her "whitening personality". 

The answer to "Are these whitening approaches the same?" Probably not. But more important than that, I find that whitening tends to be a rushed-through service. An assistant takes some fast impressions, then a few days or a week later, they give you a bag full of things and tell you good luck.

The most important key to success in teeth whitening is to be clear on what you expect, and to ask your questions before you start. Make sure they explain to you what to expect. Unfortunately, I see that a lot of patients wind up on this forum asking about disappointing results AFTER they have had something done. 

Great cosmetic dentists and their staff will make sure you know how to succeed and that you will get results you'll be happy with. They will help you find the process to get amazing teeth whitening results.
