Professional Teeth-Whitening at Home
Most common dental health issues, including cavities and gum disease, are highly preventable. Yet, some of the issues that can affect your smile’s cosmetic appearance, such as stains on your teeth, can develop even when your teeth are consistently healthy. The good news is that treating such issues is typically more convenient than addressing serious oral health concerns. For example, if your teeth are stained, then you may be able to effectively erase the stains and brighten your smile with convenient, custom-designed professional teeth-whitening. Designed to erase your teeth stains safely and easily from the comfort of home, your customized whitening kit can brighten your smile several shades in as few as 10 days.
How the treatment works
A professional teeth-whitening kit consists of a set of custom-designed trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. The trays are made from biocompatible, BPA-free acrylic and allow you to apply the professional-strength whitening gel evenly over your teeth’s surfaces. Every day, the gel will gently break up and remove staining deposits from your tooth enamel and brighten the tooth structure underneath it. After wearing the trays and gel for a couple of hours daily, most patients report maximum whitening results within 10-14 days.
Caring for your brighter smile
Once your teeth-whitening treatment is complete, you can keep your custom trays for future use. Because some stains occur naturally, many people require teeth-whitening treatment more than once in their lives. However, you can also prolong the results of each treatment by practicing excellent hygiene and preventive measures, including:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice every day
- Flossing your teeth at least once (preferably before bedtime)
- Refraining from highly acidic foods and beverages
- Avoiding chewing tobacco and smoking tobacco products
- Visiting our office regularly for checkups and cleanings
- And more
