Your Guide to Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-Home Teeth Whitening in Plano – Smile Maker of Texas Home teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that can brighten your smile by several shades in just a few weeks. If you’re curious about this treatment, let’s explore what it entails and how it can benefit you.

Understanding Teeth Whitening

In home teeth whitening, we show you how to use a whitening gel applied to your teeth using a soft flexible tray that has been custom fit for you. The hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which is present in this gel, penetrates the tooth enamel to remove stains and discolorations, brightening the enamel of your teeth over the course of several easy and convenient at home treatments.

How Does It Work?

As the hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide based gel breaks down stains, it also oxidizes pigmented molecules within the enamel of your teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.

Benefits of At-Home Teeth Whitening

One of the biggest benefits of home teeth whitening is its speed and effectiveness. Unlike over-the-counter whitening kits, which do not fit your teeth very well (not everyone is “one size fits all”), custom made-to-fit home whitening trays can show noticeable results in as quick as 3 to 4 days, in most cases.

Plus, because our team takes an accurate impression of your teeth, you can trust that your trays will fit properly to your teeth.

Additionally, custom home teeth whitening is typically less messy than over-the-counter whitening kits since you can carefully control the application of the bleaching agent. It means you’re less likely to experience gum irritation or other side effects.

Is It Painful?

You might worry about discomfort during teeth whitening, but, home teeth whitening is generally well-tolerated. Some people may experience mild sensitivity during or after the procedure, but this usually subsides quickly.

We can provide recommendations for managing any sensitivity you may experience.

How Long Does It Last?

The longevity of your results depends on various factors, including your oral hygiene habits and lifestyle choices. Avoiding foods and drinks that stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can help prolong the effects of teeth whitening. Touch-up treatments may be recommended periodically to maintain your bright smile.
