Whitening

This is the procedure of making teeth whiter and therefore more attractive. Our offices used passive tray whitening and Sheer White strips.

The tray method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays are worn for about 3 hours or overnight. The entire process takes 1 to 2 weeks of daily use. Two different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.

The Sheer White Strips we carry are of higher whitening strength than can be purchased over the counter. The sticky side of the strip has the whitening gel already applied and you simply adhere it to your teeth. You use them at least 2 hours or overnight and brush or rinse away any excess gel.
