Teeth Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening procedures help lighten teeth and eliminate stains and discoloration. Whitening is amongst the most popular cosmetic dental processes because it can significantly improve your smile. It is a process that restores the natural color of the teeth, or in numerous cases, just improves the color of the teeth to a whiter shade. There are many teeth whitening methods offered at Dental Care of Greencastle.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

 

How Take-home Whitening Trays Work

Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.

  • After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application.

  • These whitening trays can be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case.
