There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to us about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through your dentist. The whitening Opalescence gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten stained teeth. Unlike strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days. Opalescence gel comes in different strengths.
Opalescence also makes pre-filled whitening trays called Opalescence Go. These trays are single use. This is a great alternative to the custom trays.
We are happy to announce that we are a premier provider for Kor Whitening! Kor whitening is an even more effective method of at-home whitening. KöR whitening KöR-Seal™ trays are specifically designed to seal both saliva and sulcular fluid out of the whitening trays. These trays, in combination with KöR whitening gels provide 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity compared to the typical 25-35 minutes of other systems. The result is a beautiful, white smile.
