BLEACHING


AT HOME WHITENING TRAYS

By far our most popular and reliable methods of whitening utilizes custom trays fitted for each patient. Gel is applies to the trays after brushing and flossing and fitted onto the teeth. The trays are worn for two hours a day for an average of two weeks. A follow up appointment is done to determine the amount of "whiteness" attained.


CREST WHITENING STRIPS

This form of whitening utilized "strips" which cover the front six teeth of the top and bottom. There are two strengths, the "professional" and the "supreme".

The "professional" strips are twice as strong and the "supreme" strips are four times stronger than the over the counter strips found at your local drugstore. These strips are used twice a day for 30 minutes at a time for three weeks.


IN OFFICE WHITENING

This procedure takes about an hour and a half in the office. Your teeth are cleaned, isolated, and dried. The gel placed is stronger than the gel used for the "at home trays". A "special light" is used to activate the material. After direct light on each tooth is placed, the material is washed off and the procedure is repeated up to two to three times depending on the sensitivity level. After this procedure is finished, it is pertinent that you REFRAIN FROM SMOKING, EATING, OR DRINKING ANYTHING except water for the next (4) four hours because the material is still effective. Drinking or eating anything with "color" in it will turn your teeth "that color".


General Whitening Instructions:

For all the above procedures, you must refrain from eating or drinking "dark colored" foods or drinks during the duration of whitening, to help facilitate the procedures. Smoking especially will decrease the effect of the material. REMEMBER, THE GOAL IS TO WHITENING YOUR TEETH. We recommend the use of whitening toothpastes to maintain the level of your teeth.
