Fast Facts On Take-Home Teeth Whitening From Dr. Joseph Boesch
When it comes to teeth whitening, patients have options, including professional in-office and take-home kits, as well as over-the-counter whitening systems. And while each offers benefits, when you're looking to whiten your teeth gradually, safely, and from the comfort of your home, professional at-home teeth whitening kits provided by our team can provide you with the effective, predictable results you're looking for.
How are professional at-home whitening systems and over-the-counter options different?
The main differences are the whitening agent – at-home whitening systems use lower concentrations of bleaching agents than what you'll find in a dentist's kit – and the custom-fitted whitening trays, which are made to fit your unique smile.
Can anyone use a professional at-home whitening system?
Patients interested in this system will first need to schedule an appointment with our team to determine if they are a candidate for the treatment. Once you've been deemed a good candidate, we'll take impressions of your teeth in order to create your customized trays. These trays will be used to hold the bleaching gel against your teeth and will be fitted specifically to your smile.
When you come in for your follow-up appointment, we'll give you instructions on how to use the trays and how long to wear them each day. In most cases, patients will need to wear the trays for 30 minutes to an hour per day for two to four weeks. And, because you'll be supervised by our team throughout the process, we can answer any questions or address any concerns that come up along the way.
How can I keep my smile bright after using this type of whitening system?
In order to maintain your results, we recommend using a whitening toothpaste and avoiding foods and beverages that can cause staining. Additionally, you can schedule regular touch-ups with our team to help keep your smile looking its best.
