Treatments for a Whiter Smile

During the last years, Teeth whitening procedures have become an increasingly popular solution for a brighter smile, as daily consumption of coffee, wine, and other products that damaged teeth has risen. Moreover, finding procedures that work effectively to bring back a beautiful white smile has become a priority for many people. Our teeth whitening treatments not only help you get naturally whiter teeth over time, but it also maintains the results of your teeth whitening treatment and prevents stains from developing or darkening.

In this article, we will be looking at different teeth whitening procedures, which have proven to be highly effective, both for maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want. 

Take-Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs. They can also be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case.

Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A hydrogen peroxide-infused gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application. Our dentist would be happy to further go into detail about the process during your teeth whitening consultation.

Always consult with our dentist before deciding on any of teeth whitening procedures mentioned above.
