Tooth Whitening Products–Best Tooth Whitening (At-Home Method)
A custom mouth piece or “tray” is made to fit your teeth by the dental office. This tray fits over the patient’s teeth and holds the bleaching material against the teeth for a specified period of time. There are different concentrations of bleach that are worn via the tray for one to five hours per day for an average of 10 to 14 days. The regimen will be determined by the dentist and may differ for each patient. If the teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold, a “desensitizing” material may be used in the same tray on alternating days. Results are usually excellent with this method.
There are a number of over the counter solutions for tooth whitening also. Their efficiency varies tremendously! The two primary problems with most commercial products are the length of time the can comfortably be applied to the teeth, and the number of teeth they can effectively treat. Frequently we see several white front teeth and a lot of dark back teeth (weird smile!).
