If you’re looking for the best way to whiten your teeth, custom tray teeth whitening is the solution. Coffee-stained teeth? Smoker’s teeth? Aged teeth? Teeth stained as a side-effect of medications? All of these tooth discoloration problems can be effectively addressed by a custom teeth whitening tray. While the results aren’t immediate, they have been proven and tested to be effective. It’s well worth the try, knowing that you won’t be wasting your time and money. With custom tray teeth whitening, gleaming white teeth becomes an achievable feat for everyone.
What Makes Custom Tray Teeth Whitening So Effective?
Custom tray teeth whitening is very effective because it uses customized whitening trays and high quality bleaching gels to get the job done. Since the trays are customized, the bleach stays close to the teeth. Giving you even, effective results. Unlike bleaching products over the counter that come in just one size, customized trays are specifically designed for you. It’s like getting shoes that are perfectly fitted to your feet. You get both the benefits of comfort, convenience and the bright results that you desire.
What Are the Steps Involved with Custom Tray Teeth Whitening?
You schedule a consultation with Dr. Brad Pitts, wherein you will discuss with him your needs and goals for the treatment. He will also tell you what to expect from your teeth whitening treatment.
Dr. Pitts will take impressions of your teeth. This will be used to fabricate your custom bleaching trays.
The doctor will give you your whitening kit containing the customized trays and the bleaching gels. He will give you instructions on how to use the trays. You bring home the kit and begin your whitening treatment.
Your teeth whitening treatment begins. You will need to apply the bleaching gel in the tray and then wear the tray for long hours every day. While most patients prefer to use their bleaching trays during sleep, this isn’t mandatory. You can wear your customized trays at a time that’s most convenient for you. The trays are made of smooth, transparent, flexible plastic; hence, they’re comfortable enough for daytime wear.
In as little as 7 days, you can see dramatic results. The length of treatment depends on the severity and cause of discoloration. Hard-to-remove tetracycline stains, caused by medications, may take a much longer time to whiten than mild cases of tooth discoloration.
How Long will the Results Last?
Teeth whitening lasts from 6 months to 1 year, depending on oral hygiene care and other factors. These factors include the types of food and drinks that you take-in and daily habits like smoking. Teeth whitening is a very effective treatment, yet it isn’t permanent. You really have to maintain good oral habits, so that it lasts for as long as possible.
