Until recently, customized teeth whitening trays were only available through the dentist and could be expensive and time consuming. Now, teeth impressions can be done at home and sent to the lab to become customized whitening trays, saving you hundreds of dollars.
Now it’s time for the next step – whitening your teeth at home. The entire at-home process is easy. Start by brushing your teeth. The whitening gel is placed into the tray before fitting over your teeth for one hour a day once a day until you reach your desired level of whitening (usually 5-10 days). Rise and admire.
The active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, breaks down and allows oxygen to enter the enamel of your teeth, removing stains and making the tooth to become whiter and lighter in color. The gel is safe and will not change the structure of your teeth.
In many cases, these results will last for many years and only require small touch ups once or twice a year. Teeth whitening is great for treating extrinsic stains and discoloration. Some people may experience tooth sensitivity or gum irritation after treatment. This normally disappears within three days.
