There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile. With so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to us about the differences.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through a dentist. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten stained teeth.
Unlike strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.
Our disposable trays are are more cost-effective way to whiten. A pack of ten days can be purchased. They are dental-office strength compared to lesser strength, over-the-counter options.
This is for the person who wants white teeth, but knows he or she won’t wear trays. When you have a busy schedule, just committing two hours at the dentist can be a great option.
