Teeth whitening trays are commonly used in at home and professional teeth whitening treatments.
They are used as containers to hold the whitening gel snug against your teeth. Teeth whitening trays keep your saliva from removing the gel away from your teeth. At Downtown Concord Dental in Concord, we have made thousands of teeth whitening trays with the teeth whitening system.
A Custom Tray is made to conform to your mouth. Downtown Concord Dental recommends this type of tray. This type of tray is very similar to a mouth guard, but thinner and smaller. It is made of soft material that covers the teeth. These trays are the best to prevent the gel peroxide from touching the gums and causing gum sensitivity. An accurate fit not only provides comfort, it also ensures maximum protection against spilling.
Getting your trays at Downtown Concord Dental instead of a local store is that you will receive an oral examination prior to decide on the specifics of the whitening solution. We can determine the best teeth whiteners for you and will advise exactly how much you should be using and how often in order to achieve the desired results. There is no other method that is more specifically personalized to each client as this one. With professional teeth whitening treatment you can be sure of a safer treatment than using an over-the-counter bleaching kit.
We also do In-Office Whitening
Significant color change in a short period of time is the major benefit of in-office whitening. This protocol involves the carefully controlled use of a product containing anywhere from 15% to 35% hydrogen peroxide gels, applied to the teeth by a trained technician after the gums have been adequately protected with a paint-on rubber dam. A laser or a special light could possibly be used to increase the whitening effect. The bleaching gel is then rinsed off and this procedure is usually repeated several times. Generally, the peroxide remains on the teeth for several 15 to 20 minute intervals that add up to approximately one hour. You may start with a teeth whitening in-office visit, but those with particularly stubborn staining may be asked to continue with a home-use whitening system.
Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits
Take-home kits incorporate an easy-to-use lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight). The lower the peroxide percentage, the longer it may safely remain on the teeth. The gel is applied to the teeth using custom-made bleaching trays that resemble mouth guards.
