Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic reasons our patients visit us at DentaCare. We tell our patients the good news about teeth whitening is that there are treatments that allow them to achieve a whiter smile from the comfort of their own homes.
Take-Home vs. In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatments
Many of our dental patients prefer our take-home treatments over in-office treatments. The advantages to take-home whitening treatments are:
- They can be less painful for individuals with sensitive teeth.
- They cost less than in-office whitening treatments.
- You can achieve a whiter smile from the comfort of your own home.
How Take-Home Teeth Whitening Treatments Work
Take-home whitening treatments are fairly easy to administer and typically take around four weeks for most patients to see their best results. The treatments we recommend use disposable trays that are fitted to your mouth. These trays are to be filled with a teeth whitening solution and placed into your mouth for a period of time that is usually around 30 minutes (individuals with sensitive teeth may choose to remove the trays sooner than 30 minutes). The process is to be repeated on a daily basis until the teeth whitening solution diminishes teeth stains and discoloration. Teeth whitening treatments have also been known to address other common cosmetic issues.
Our experienced staff at DentaCare is witness to the effectiveness of take-home whitening treatments and prescribes them to hundreds of our patients per year. They are ready to assist you and will recommend the best treatment FOR YOU based on cost, time, and effectiveness.
