Keeping teeth white can be a lot harder than one might think. Even with diligent brushing, flossing and dental cleanings, teeth can still lose their gleam. This is because they are constantly in contact with the acid in food and drinks, which can cause them to become dull and stained. However, surface staining is reversible, and teeth whitening services from the dentist can help patients restore the luster to their smiles. The internal color of teeth can also darken with time, and this can also be whitened.
Teeth whitening services are becoming more and more popular, and as the demand for whiter teeth increases, patients are realizing that over-the-counter techniques just aren’t as effective as options offered by their dentist. The take-home tray system is an effective whitening method that can give patients exceptional smiles in only a few sessions.
The process begins by taking an impression of the patient’s teeth for custom whitening trays. After the trays have been completed, patients can apply the gentle, whitening gel to the trays and wear them for a short period of time. Patients can use the trays again and again. After a few sessions, spaced out over a couple of days, patients will notice a whiter, brighter smile.
