At home whitening is convenient, safe and comfortable. It includes a simple-to-use whitening gel and custom-made whitening trays. You will also be given instructions on how to use this at-home whitening system so you get the best results.
To make up your customized at-home whitening kit, you will first visit your dentist to have impressions taken of your teeth. These impressions are sent to the dental lab to create your custom-made whitening trays. The dentist will record your initial teeth shade in your chart to compare it with the shade of your teeth once you have completed the at-home whitening treatment.
You typically use this whitening treatment for two weeks, one hour each day. Then you use it for a simple touch-up when needed after.
For your convenience, there are certain brands of the at-home whitening system that you can wear overnight. Before you put the trays in your mouth, refrain from smoking, eating, or drinking — and be sure to brush and floss your teeth. At your follow up appointment, you’ll get to compare your teeth shade with the initial shade to see your stunning results!
Nothing radiates health and happiness like a nice, white smile. Teeth whitening is a very affordable cosmetic dentistry option you can use to enhance a dull, faded smile. You can do it right in your home or at your dentist’s office, depending on the type of treatment you use.
Remember, that regardless of the type of whitening option you choose, results typically only last from six months to 2 years. So, you will want to talk with your dentist about additional treatments in the future as needed.
