Teeth Whitening or bleaching is a simple, safe, and non-invasive way to change the colour of your natural enamel, it can be an ideal way to enhance your smile in 10 – 20 days.
There are two different types of tooth stains:
Extrinsic – Surface or outside stains
Intrinsic – Underneath the enamel stains or the interior of the tooth.
Custom Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
Teeth Whitening or bleaching is a simple, safe, and non-invasive way to change the colour of your natural tool enamel. One of the most popular ways to effectively whiten your teeth is a dentist-made, custom take-home teeth whitening system.
The whitening trays are custom-made to fit your teeth. A peroxide whitening gel is placed in the custom tray once a day for 30 minutes – an hour. Depending on each patient, you should see your teeth whitened in 10 – 20 days.
Difference Between Professional Whitening and Over-the Counter Whitening
The difference between professional whitening and over-the-counter whitening are three things.
Over-the-counter whitening may have a lower concentration of product, which means you likely will have to use the product for much longer than you would a custom, dentist-administered product.
Over-the-counter whitening are also affected by your saliva, if the whitening solution becomes in contact with saliva, it will be washed away. A professional tray system holds the solution against the teeth, preventing saliva from diluting it, making it much more efficient and effective.
Lastly, over-the-counter whitening strips are restricted to a generic length and width. A broad smile or larger than average teeth may not be whitened consistently or might not fit your mouth very well.
