Teeth whitening (Bleaching) is a great treatment to provide a fresher, better looking smile. Although teeth whitening can be done in one appointment at the dental office, we recommend bleaching via custom take home kit. The take-home kit, while providing the same level of whitening compared to in-office whitening, is associated with less sensitivity. Also with the take-home kit the level of whitening can be controlled easier as it is a gradual change. In addition, the trays can be re-used for future treatment, which makes this a more economical option.
We recommend that you have a consultation with the dentist prior to having teeth whitening done to ensure that you are well-informed about your choices and understand the proper use of the bleaching material. We also recommend that you start the teeth whitening process after your hygiene appointment to ensure best results.
