Corio dentists tips on the best way to whiten your teeth

1. Take-home professional whitening kit

A take-home professional whitening kit is an effective and safe way to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. It is great for people who need to do regular touch-ups or for those who have sensitive teeth.

What does it involve?

  • Impressions of your teeth.
  • From these impressions we make custom trays that are made specifically for your teeth.
  • The trays are made in a certain way, so that the whitening gel stays on your teeth and not on your gums. This reduces gum damage and sensitivity.
  • You are given a kit which includes your own custom trays and a whitening gel which is chosen for your needs.
  • Not all whitening gels are made the same. Our Corio dentists can give you a gel that has enough whitening strength so that you will see real results. They also have built-in mechanisms which help rebuild the teeth so that no damage is caused. A lot of over the counter whitening kits do not have enough active ingredient, making them less effective.
  • The gel is placed in the trays. The trays are worn for a short period of time or overnight, depending on which one is more suitable for you. The gel used is chemically activated and does not require a light.

2. In-office whitening

In-office whitening is an option for people who do not have sensitive teeth and who have a short time frame for when they need the whitening done by. This is great for last minute events.

What does it involve?

  • This is an in-office procedure.
  • A gum guard will be placed to protect your gum tissue as the whitening gel used is very strong.
  • Whitening gel is placed on each individual tooth and is activated by a light.
  • The procedure may need to be repeated depending on the start and desired shade.
