Tooth Whitening – Home Whitening
Our home whitening program allows you to whiten your smile yourself with a home whitening kit which includes tooth whitening solution and trays that we make to perfectly fit over your teeth. The steps include the following:
- Impressions of your teeth are taken in the surgery and from these we make the trays which you can take home.
- To start the home whitening process, you place a small amount of the whitening solution in each of the trays and fit them over your upper and lower teeth. The solution gently whitens the enamel surface of your teeth.
- Usually, you will follow this procedure for an hour daily over one to two weeks or as advised by your dentist.
- If you wish, you can touch up the whitening every one to three years, as required and under the dentist’s supervision.
This whitening process is not harmful to your teeth and many patients choose to whiten their teeth this way. It is less costly than the Zoom procedure; however, the results are not as dramatic and take longer to be noticeable.
