See How to Enjoy a Brighter Smile
There are three types of whitening that we work with. And so at the lower level, if you will, it would be considered going to the pharmacy and purchasing something like Crest whitening strips. Again, it’s the least expensive, the easiest probably to do, and it does get some results. Then the next level is where actually professionally, we have whitening trays that are made. So I’ll call that at-home whitening. So that’s about medium level. It includes an upper and a lower tray where we actually place a gel in the tray for a half hour. That’s worn for about a two-week period of time. It gets great results.
The next level up gives us very similar results, but it’s just much faster. And that might be referred to some knowing it as Zoom or using the light to whiten teeth and such. We like to make trays also for those patients that like anyone on an annual basis, we consider doing a little touch up maybe for a day or two, just to get that little bit lightness because the stains are really caused by a lifetime of colas, teas, coffee, some individual’s tobacco, and some other various stains. And so we’re able to gently lift those out of the teeth. That’s what’s available right now for whitening products.
