HOME TEETH WHITENING OPTIONS
- TRAY WHITENING
Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through our office. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help brighten your stained teeth. Unlike strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days. The only downside is that this process can take 3 to 5 days to begin to show results.
- TEETH-WHITENING STRIPS
Teeth-whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic strips with a thin film of chemicals on one side. Whitening strip sets come with two strips – strips for the upper and for the lower teeth. The whitening gel is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The results of these strips are spotty at best. While these strips are extremely easy to find in most Hesperia and Apple Valley stores, we do not recommend this as an option.
- WHITENING TOOTHPASTE AND MOUTHWASH
The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Designed to have “whitening” abilities, toothpastes and mouthwashes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. Unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will lighten your teeth only slightly
