Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look bright and white. Teeth whitening can lighten your teeth and minimizing the staining effects of soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco.
To achieve a brighter smile, many patients opt to whiten their teeth with custom fitted, professional take-home whitening trays.
The procedure is simple. We start by taking an impression of your teeth, based on which we'll make a fitted tray that will hold the whiten solution in contact with your teeth.
During the process, you'll wear the trays for around half an hour a day for 7 to 10 days, or longer if you want them whiter. If your in a rush to get your teeth whitened for a special event, you can safely to wear the trays twice a day, morning and night.
Whitening can cause some temporary sensitivity in your teeth. For those who have sensitive teeth even before they whiten, we recommend a desensitizing prior to whitening or on alternate days.
