New Patient Special
We offer free custom whitening for all new patients who visit our office for a cleaning and checkup. It’s important to schedule appointments twice a year to maintain good oral health. As a service to our new patients, we will custom fit you for take-home whitening trays.
Free Custom Whitening
Whitening can be very safe and effective for a brighter smile. It’s the most proven way to a whiter smile. Our free custom whitening includes trays and bleaching gel. We take impressions of your teeth to make custom fit trays. The trays will hold against your teeth better, because they’re made to your mouth. That’s better because the bleaching solution will adhere to your teeth better than if you were to use over the counter strips or trays.
We provide a bleaching product that contains carbamide peroxide. It is the most tested bleaching product on the market. Patients should use a small amount of bleach (about the size of a grain of rice) per each tooth in the tray. Be careful not to put too much into the tray because it can make your gums tender, and you don’t want to waste the product. A little goes a long way with our custom system. I created a short video that shows you how to fill the trays, click here to view it. The solution comes in small syringes. We give you several, and each syringe should last 4-5 nights. The main side effect from bleaching is sensitivity. It can make your teeth more sensitive to cold while you’re undergoing the treatment.
When to Wear Your Trays
We recommend you wear the trays at night, sleeping in them for one to two weeks. Once you reach the desired shade of white on your teeth, you can stop using the product. The treatment should last close to two years, depending on how much tea and coffee you drink. After that it’s about maintenance. If you feel your teeth have lost some of the brightness or staining has returned, you can use the bleaching solution again for several nights. You will keep these trays and use them again for touch ups and future treatments.
Not everyone will be a candidate for bleach trays. Depending on the makeup of your teeth and the previous dental work you’ve had done, the whitening trays may not be an option for you. We can discuss that during your visit. To schedule an appointment, call our office at 864-520-2942 or book online.
