How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re seeking at-home teeth whitening solutions, there are a few simple methods you can try. Consider brushing your teeth with baking soda, occasionally using a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution (1.5% instead of the common 3% over-the-counter concentration) for brushing or rinsing, or using apple cider vinegar as a brushing or rinsing agent. Additionally, incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet can benefit both your overall health and tooth appearance. Reducing consumption of teeth-staining foods like soda, coffee, and wine, as well as limit sugar intake will help whiten teeth. Don’t forget the power of regular brushing and flossing twice a day—they remain essential tools for maintaining oral hygiene.
