Don’t let dull or discolored teeth destroy your confidence. A brighter and whiter smile can easily be achieved with our professional whitening options. We offer two different take-home options to use at your convenience.
Custom-Fit Trays: This version requires you to come to the office to have impressions taken of your teeth. This will allow us to custom-make the thin, flexible plastic mouth trays for you — one for the top teeth and one for the bottom. You will fill the trays with Opalescence whitening gel and then position the trays over your teeth. The amount of time you wear the trays is dependent on the strength of gel you choose from our office. This method allows you to purchase new gel when you run out, while using the original trays. Several weeks may be needed to achieve your desired level of whiteness.
Opalescence “Go-Packs”: These convenient kits are just as effective as custom-fit trays. With no impressions, models or lab time required these prefilled trays easily conform to any patient’s smile and are very comfortable. Each kit includes twenty trays (i.e. ten for the upper and ten for the lower, although they are not different style trays), each to be worn for one-time use.
Caring for Your Whitened Smile
There are many things you can do to make sure your whitening results last as long as possible. First of all, maintain your usual, conscientious routine of brushing and flossing every day, and keep up with your regular schedule of professional cleanings at the dental office. Avoid foods and beverages that stain, including red wine, tea and coffee. If you smoke, use your newly whitened teeth as an incentive to quit! A minor touch-up every so often can keep your smile bright and beautiful for years.
