Some may experience teeth staining over their lifetime, which can be due to a variety of factors. Soda, coffee, tea, smoking, and at times genetics are typically the most common factors. New technology now allows dentists to whiten teeth without changing or damaging the tooth structure. The method we offer is custom tray whitening.
A dentist will take impressions or molds of the patient’s upper and lower teeth. Custom trays can be created for the top and bottom teeth using these molds. The custom trays and whitening gel go home with the patient who then dispenses the whitening gel into the trays. Following the dentist’s instructions, the patient should wear these trays at home for a specified amount of time, which can range from one hour a day to possibly overnight for around 2 weeks.
