Tooth Whitening

At-Home Whitening Method

A custom mouthpiece or “tray” is made by the dental office to fit your teeth. This tray fits over your teeth and holds the bleaching material against the teeth for a specified period of time. There are different concentrations of bleach that are worn via the tray for 30 to 60 minutes per day for an average of 14 days. The regimen will be determined by the dentist and may differ for each patient. If the teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold, a “desensitizing” material may be used in the same tray on alternating days. Results are usually excellent with this method and the trays can be used to remove to remove future staining.
