Take Home Tooth Whitening
The gold standard for tooth whitening is at home whitening kit. First, a dental assistant will take impressions of your teeth. Then a dental lab will fabricate a customized whitening trays that adapt perfectly to your teeth. They are comfortable to wear, soft, thin and nearly invisible. When you first use your bleaching trays you will wear them about 15-20 minutes a day for about two weeks. This bleaching is to remove all the teeth staining that has accumulated over your entire life. Once you notice your teeth are not getting any whiter then you will stop bleaching. Then in 6 or 9 months if you notice that your teeth are a little darker you simply bleach for a day or two. This touch up bleaching is just to remove the stain you built up since your last bleaching.

How Long will Tooth Whitening Last?

Teeth whitening removes stains from coffee, tea, and red wine that have accumulated over time. Increasing the brightness of a person’s smile can transform their appearance and enhance their confidence. The effects of teeth whitening are long-lasting. Patients may acquire new stains over time, but excellent oral hygiene practices at home and periodic use of a professional take-home whitening touch-up product can effectively preserve their initial shade.
