Whitening trays consist of a mouthpiece molded specifically for your mouth and a whitening solution. Sunrise Dental offers whitening trays and in-office Zoom! Whitening treatments.
Your dentist creates a mold of your teeth and sends it to the manufacturer where they create your mouthpiece. Then, you apply the whitening solution to the mouthpiece and wear it for a specific amount of time. Since whitening trays fit perfectly in your mouth, they whiten your teeth more uniformly than an over-the-counter version.
In-office whitening treatments involve applying whitening gel directly to your teeth. The Zoom! Whitening System uses an LED lamp to quicken the whitening process.
After applying the 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening solution to your teeth, the dentist positions the Zoom! light over the teeth to help the solution penetrate and break down stains.
Professional teeth whitening provides a more dramatic effect than store-bought options. Dentists use a more concentrated version of the bleaching agents to accelerate results. Chairside whitening creates the most impressive effect of any other options available.
Dentist-supervised whitening is much safer than DIY whitening. Dentists take proper precautions to ensure the treatment is done correctly so your teeth and gums don’t get injured.
Dentists also have the best gauge on what works and what doesn’t. For example, because a dentist recognizes that the color of veneers and fillings can’t be changed, he may only recommend whitening to a certain degree.
Try to avoid food and drinks that notoriously stain teeth, such as coffee, red wine, dark colas, and chocolate. Tobacco also stains teeth, so you should refrain from smoking or chewing for the best results.
You could also brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste in between appointments to help prevent new stains. Ask your dentist about touch-up kits to help maintain your new color.
