At Stevenson Dental Care, we have an easy and cost-effective custom whitening system. That uses custom-made take-home whitening trays to put a healthier look back into your smile without the expense of a costly, generic cosmetic treatment.
Although there are so many over-the-counter products available for whitening teeth without dentist supervision, the most effective and safest whitening treatment, the CDA recommends using custom-fitted mouth trays made by your dentist.
The take home tray whitening process is comfortable and requires a short visit to your dentist.
Before starting the whitening process, we will clean your teeth and treat any existing dental problems like decay or gum disease. The next step is making your custom take home whitening trays. After taking an impression of your teeth, we will use the molds to make the trays. Durable, lightweight and clear, the trays usually take a couple of days to be made.
Once made, these trays can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. For at-home use, you will place a small amount of the bleaching solution into the clear trays and wear the trays for an hour a day for one to two weeks.
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 recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application. These whitening trays can be used several times to obtain the desired results. It is important to note that although take home trays are a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains.
Overall, patients are amazed at how much whitening takes place during this time, and an occasional treatment now and then is all you need to keep your teeth looking their best.
