Take Home Trays
What makes over the counter teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself. However, it is still important to consult our dentist so that the correct teeth whitening take-home kit is given to you.
Whitening trays are customizable and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A special gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth. They are also great for our patients who are on the go and need a more flexible way to do a teeth whitening treatment, as well as for those who have never done one and would like to start by using this method, Our dentist will go through the steps in-office and over what to do to maximize your treatment.
The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and accelerate the bleaching process. The Zoom bleaching process lightens discolored enamel and eliminates stains while leaving the structure of your teeth intact and unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
