WHITENING - In Office Whitening/Take Home Whitening
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods of whitening: passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.
Whitening is a safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of in office whitening in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.
With the tray method, a carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.
The end results whether using trays at home or doing in office whitening is the same.
