At Home Whitening Systems You Can Trust
Looking for the best teeth whitening at home products? We can help you with that. Over time, your teeth darken as minerals penetrate their outer enamel layer. This darkening can be caused by foods and beverages that stain, such as coffee, colas, tea, red wine, or berries. Tobacco products, like cigarettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco, can cause teeth to take on a yellowish brown hue. And the natural aging process can also cause your teeth to darken.
We can prescribe a home whitening system that will safely lighten these stains, giving you a whiter, brighter smile. A specially formulated whitening gel gently forces oxygen through the enamel of your teeth. The gel is designed to be highly effective, yet safe. The process virtually erases stains and brightens your teeth without damage to enamel or gums.
Designing your whitening system
First we thoroughly examine your teeth and your mouth to make sure at-home whitening is an appropriate option for you. We then take impressions of you teeth, and use the impressions to make exact models of your teeth. Using these models, we make a custom fitted whitening tray that fits over your teeth, allowing us to achieve optimum results.
At home you will fill the tray with the whitening gel and place it over your teeth, keeping it in place for several hours each day. You can wear the whitening trays while you sleep or if you prefer, you can wear them as you go about your day. Typically, you’ll begin to see results in one to two weeks.
We’ll monitor your progress on a regular basis, ensuring that your gums aren’t becoming irritated and your teeth are whitening as desired. When the process is complete, your smile will be noticeably whiter and brighter.
Maintaining your new whiter smile
- Let us know if you experience some sensitivity during or following the whitening process. This is normal and should subside shortly. We can suggest toothpaste that will alleviate the sensitivity.
- Avoid foods and beverages that stain, like coffee, cola, tea, berries, and red wine, or brush or rinse with water after consuming them.
- See us periodically for touch-ups to remove new stains.
