Today’s teeth whitening treatments are so easy, convenient and affordable that they’ve become a regular part of everyone’s beauty routine. If you haven’t tried one yet, you’ll be happy to know that you have plenty of choices. For the fastest, most dramatic results, consider laser teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening treatments take just an hour and can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. If you’re the do-it-yourself type, an at-home teeth whitening kit might be right for you. These professional grade teeth whitening kits produce excellent results over a longer period of time. They can be purchased from your dentist or over-the-counter, but for best results, it’s recommended that you always consult with a dentist before trying any over-the-counter teeth whitening system.
Lifetime Teeth Whitening System
- Make sure teeth are clean
- In-office Whitening (38% Hydrogen Peroxide)
- Opalescence-to-Go for 10 days (15% Hydrogen Peroxide)
- Bleaching trays once per month (9.5% Hydrogen Peroxide)
- VERY IMPORTANT: FOR 3 DAYS AFTER TEETH WHITENING, AVOID DARK DRINKS AND LIQUIDS
In-office Whitening: 1 HOUR
Our in-office whitening involves a strong 38% Hydrogen Peroxide application. This requires isolation of the teeth and gums to prevent burns. A light is used to catalyze the reaction. This procedure typically takes a total of 60 minutes. Teeth Brightness will improve.
Opalescence-to-Go: 10 DAYS
Imagine that the “windows” of your teeth are open after the in-office bleaching. This is a perfect time to use the Opalescence-to-Go system. Just as your teeth are amenable to staining from eating/drinking dark foods and sauces, they are also amenable to getting brighter. Opalescence-to-Go is the next logical step to achieve this for those who want to maximize the brightest result they can achieve! This system uses pre-fabricated trays. You will apply the tray in each arch (upper and lower, one at a time) and perform the following: take the outer tray off and discard, mold the remaining tray (the bleaching tray) to your teeth using your tongue and lips (do not bite it hard or you will deform the tray), wear it for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Afterwards discard and brush your teeth using the Sonicare toothbrush system.
Home Bleaching Trays: ONCE/MONTH
These trays are custom fabricated to fit your teeth so that you may bleach your teeth without causing harm to your gums or gum-recession areas. You will use your trays once per month to help maintain the brightness you achieved with the in-office and opalescence whitening systems.
This system is an excellent teeth whitening and whitening-maintenance system. Of course, at any time, you can use one or all 3 of the systems multiple times. The more you whiten your teeth, the brighter they will become. Please remember to schedule your Hygiene visits at the recommended interval because Gingivitis or Periodontal Disease inhibits teeth from staying bright! Use the Sonicare Hygiene Maintenance System twice daily. And, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email us!
