Take-Home Custom Teeth Whitening Trays - A Truly An Easy, Painless Procedure
Posted on 1/23/2023 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Tooth discoloration often has many implications besides your tooth's aesthetics. It could also impact your confidence and self-esteem. Our dentists can provide effective treatments for the stains on your teeth. For those who may not have the time to get to a dentist for a chairside whitening, they can still do an at-home whitening with instructions and guidance from the dentist.
What are Teeth-Whitening Trays?
Teeth-whitening trays are small devices your dentist slips over your teeth to remove discoloration. They contain a bleaching agent that oxidizes the stains on the enamel.
The two primary teeth-whitening options are Over-the-Counter and in-office products. OTC options are cheaper but more likely to cause tooth sensitivity or pain.
In-office whitening trays are customized to meet each patient's needs. That means our dentist can tailor the strength of the bleaching agent depending on your needs. It also utilizes specialized LED lights to activate the ingredients.
Teeth-Whitening Trays Procedure
There are several factors responsible for tooth discoloration. An initial exam is essential for customizing the in-office teeth whitening trays to your needs. Professional dental cleaning is also necessary to eliminate plaque, tartar, and food debris.
Our dental specialists will create custom trays according to your teeth's contour and discoloration. That ensures the tray covers more of the tooth without touching the gum line. Our dentists can use stronger solutions with minimal damage to your teeth and gums.
Advantages of Teeth-whitening Trays Procedure
Exposure to LED light activates the gel's ingredients and reduces the time it takes to whiten teeth. The in-0ffice process requires minimal preparation time. The trays keep the gel away from the gums and minimize tooth oxidation. As a result, the whitening procedure has lower chances of tooth sensitivity.
Additionally, it minimizes the risk of gum irritation and inflammation by limiting the gel's contact with the gum tissue. That means the gel can remain on the teeth longer without stinging or causing excessive pain. Contact our dental team to schedule an in-office tooth-whitening consultation.
