At Home Whitening – Custom Tray Whitening
Custom tray whitening is the most effective and affordable whitening system we have to offer. It’s custom fit and customizable bleaching products allow patients to receive the highest quality whitening results.
Within a simple 15 minute appointment, impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth. Our lab technicians then use those impressions to fabricate custom trays that are made just for you! The process to make the custom trays takes about one week. At that time, you will come back to our office to pick-up your custom trays and receive detailed instructions on the use and care of your trays verbally and in written form.
We offer Opalescence bleaching products for you to purchase and use in your custom trays. They come in a variety of strengths. The manufacturer suggests upon initial use, that you wear the trays loaded with bleach for 1-2 hours per day for 14 days. You can then touch-up 2-3 times a year and wear the loaded bleaching trays 1-2 hours for 2-3 days. How often you touch-up will depend on your habits. Smoking, drinking coffee, tea, wine and soda, and eating certain foods such as berries, marinara and barbecue sauce, curry, and chocolate all stain teeth.
At Home Whitening – Preloaded Whitening Trays
We also provide a simple and fast teeth whitening system called Opalescence Treswhite Supreme.
Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme features innovative, preloaded whitening trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. The trays are discrete and disposable, making it easy to whiten on the go. An affordable option, with a wear-time of just 30-60 minutes once a day, Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme is easy to adapt to your budget and lifestyle.
Opalescence Treswhite Supreme contains prescription-strength hydrogen peroxide that is stronger than supermarket teeth whiteners. Because of the added strength of the formula, Opalescence Treswhite Supreme offers noticeable results in about a week.
Opalescence Treswhite Supreme contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity protection.
