    Tooth Whitening Methods We Use

    In-Office Whitening — If you’re short on time or prefer not to wear bleaching trays at home, an in-office whitening session may provide the best solution. This same-day treatment whitens your teeth by up to 8 shades in just one appointment. So, if you have an important last-minute event like an interview or want to look your best for family photos, you can easily work a whitening treatment into your schedule. In-office whitening uses a concentrated gel that’s light-activated, for quick stain oxidation and efficient whitening. You’ll see immediate results.

    Take-Home Whitening — Custom whitening trays are molded to the shape of your smile, providing exceptional coverage with the least amount of product necessary. Predictably and efficiently whiten your teeth at home in just 10-14 days. Professional grade whitening trays offer better whitening results than any over-the-counter product you’ll find in stores. Apply a small amount of gel into the small reservoirs throughout your bleaching trays, then wear them as directed. Most people begin to see an improvement after just a few days.

    At-Home Tooth Whitening Remedies

    Do over-the-counter whitening products work? Yes, to an extent. Although the gel in strips or one-size trays may contain some of the same ingredients as professional whitening systems, the gel is a much weaker concentration. Results tend to be more limited or even produce patchy coloration, due to the way it’s applied. Although there are a variety of DIY teeth whitening and at-home methods people try, many of these trends can be dangerous for your tooth enamel. In some cases, they can cause irreversible enamel damage, resulting in tooth sensitivity or decay. Always speak to a dentist before beginning any type of whitening regimen. Since whitening products are meant for healthy teeth, you’ll want to have your smile screened for active tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, do not use whitening gel if you have tooth-colored restorations (such as fillings or crowns) in your “smile zone”, as they will not respond to the gel. If you plan to update your dental work in the near future, consider whitening your teeth just prior to the planned treatment.

    Cost and Insurance Options

    Teeth whitening is an elective, cosmetic procedure. As such, it’s usually not covered by dental insurance. Fortunately, teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments available. The price between in-house whitening and take-home kits differs, so you’ll be able to select the one that’s best for your budget. It’s worth noting that professional teeth whitening is more cost-effective than using commercial bleaching kits. Since the gel is more concentrated and efficient, you’re able to use less product in a shorter period of time. Plus, take-home trays can be used to touch up whenever necessary, so there’s no need to purchase a new kit any time you need to freshen up your smile. Simply store the leftover gel in a cool, dry place and apply as needed. We recommend touching up after each six-month cleaning to keep your smile bright for years. The initial investment in professional teeth whitening can save you money over time.
