Teeth-Whitening

Professional Teeth-Whitening at Home

Keeping your smile healthy and beautiful is an ongoing process, and for the most part, it relies heavily on the success of your routine hygiene and preventive dental efforts. In some cases, however, you may be faced with something you couldn’t prevent, such as surface stains or discoloration on your teeth. Usually resulting from things like exposure to food and beverages, stains can gradually develop on your teeth despite excellent dental health. Fortunately, they can often be just as easily erased with professional teeth-whitening, allowing you to regain confidence in your smile without having to undergo a time-consuming dental procedure. At our office, we can custom-design a set of whitening trays that you can take home and use with the potent whitening agent, comfortably and on your own time.

How a Custom Whitening Kit Works

Unlike cosmetic restorations such as tooth bonding or porcelain veneers, professional teeth-whitening is a topical solution that chemically breaks up and removes stains from your teeth. Teeth-whitening is also the only dental treatment that you can perform at home. Your custom-designed trays will fit comfortably over your upper and lower teeth and allow you to carefully and evenly apply the potent but safe whitening agent to your teeth surfaces. To perform the treatment, you will have to wear the trays and gel for 1-2 hours a day, though you can wear them at the time that’s most convenient for you. The trays will ensure the uniform application of the gel for optimal results, and after 10-14 days, the gel will successfully brighten your smile.

Benefit from Professional Teeth-Whitening at Home

Teeth stains can significantly affect your smile’s appearance, and unfortunately, they’re not always preventable.
