At our practice, we stand by the gold standard custom made whitening trays loaded with either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Prior to treatment, we will take high quality photos of your teeth and we will make custom upper and lower trays. Your dentist will select a solution, concentration, and regimen that is appropriate for you and your teeth. You will be given all that you need to do at-home professional-grade tooth whitening. After 1 to 2 weeks, we will evaluate progress. Depending on results, we will decide whether to complete the treatment or select a different whitening agent.
There are several benefits of the at-home whitening approach. 1) you are in control of how much lighter your teeth become 2) If your teeth are prone to sensitivity, you can choose to wear the trays for shorter periods of time 3) you can easily and cheaply re-whiten your teeth with a “maintenance kit” if the whitening effects fade over time.
