Teeth whitening for a whiter, brighter smile
If you prefer the flexibility of whitening your teeth at home, your dentist can create a custom made kit for you to use at your convenience.
Just wear the trays for 15-30 minutes every day for up to 10 days depending on the formula your dentist has recommended. And don’t worry if you miss a day, you can start and stop your whitening program to accommodate your busy schedule.
Studies show that most people see whiter teeth after 3 nights of using whitening at home. However, some patients can take longer to whiten. You can store any remaining gel in the refrigerator for future touch-ups, but do not freeze. Some patients may experience an increase in sensitivity to cold during the whitening process, however this is often mild. The symptoms should subside in 2 to 3 days after interrupting the treatment. You can then try whitening every second or third night.
For all whitening methods, try to minimise the consumption of tea, coffee, red wine and smoking, as these substances may re-stain the teeth during and after the whitening process. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is not recommended that you use any whitening products. Contact your dentist if you have any questions.
