Teeth whitening offers a fast, non-invasive method to improve your smile. It is a process that restores the natural color of the teeth, or in many cases, just boosts the color of the teeth beyond its natural shade. Almost everyone who chooses a teeth whitening solution sees reasonable to a significant reduction in the discoloration of their smile and an enhancement of their teeth's white color. There are many teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office that our dentist could recommend you during your first visit.

Opalescence consists of custom made trays that our dentist provides at our office. This kit allows our patients to get professional whitening results in the comfort of their own home. This treatment is great for people who suffer from teeth sensitivity.
Take Home Trays
Take-home whitening trays are an easy and cost-effective type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform in the comfort of your home. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they may not be as effective for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
How Take-home Whitening Trays Work
Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of a specialized gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not suggested to use them for at least another day after each application.
These whitening trays can be used several times to obtain the desired results. Our dentist can further advise you on how many times they should be used in your case. Also, you can have them customized to your needs.
