About home whitening
Home whitening is a really popular option and it is a great choice for patients who have very busy schedules and anti-social working hours. With this system, treatment takes place at home, so there’s no need to worry about finding time to schedule dental appointments.
Home whitening involves a very simple process and nervous patients will be pleased to hear that there is no pain at all. Before you start whitening, you will have a consultation with your dentist, so that they can have a quick look at your teeth to make sure that you are a suitable match for treatment. Once you’re ready to go ahead with treatment, your dentist will make a mould of your teeth and this will be used to create your brand new, bespoke whitening trays. These trays are similar to mouth guards, which are worn for sport, and they contain whitening agent, which gradually lightens the shade of the teeth.
When you get home, your treatment can begin. All you have to do is wear the whitening trays on a daily, for around 6 hours at a time. Most people prefer to wear the trays at night.
The average treatment duration for home whitening is 2 weeks. At the end of this period, you should notice a beautiful, bright smile!
