Take-home teeth whitening is a dental procedure involving customized trays and whitening gel to whiten teeth at home. It is a popular alternative to in-office teeth whitening treatments performed in a dental office.
To start with take-home teeth whitening, you will first need to visit Asure Dental for an initial consultation. During this consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
The whitening gel breaks down stains and discoloration on the surface of the teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.
Take-Home Whitening Instructions
We must follow our dentist’s instructions carefully to avoid potential side effects such as tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. You should remember that the results of at-home teeth whitening may vary depending on the severity of the staining and your oral health.
Brush your teeth before using the at-home whitening trays to ensure that your teeth are clean.
Apply a small amount of whitening gel to the tray for each tooth that needs to be whitened.
Insert the trays into your mouth, ensuring they are seated comfortably and securely.
Wear the trays for the recommended time, as our dentist instructed. Depending on the product, it may range from 30 minutes to several hours per day.
After the recommended time has passed, remove the trays and rinse your mouth with water. Brush your teeth gently to remove any remaining gel.
Maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing regularly, ensures the best possible results.
