Have you spent money on store-bought teeth whitening kits only to be disappointed by the lackluster results? It’s natural to look for the easiest solutions that seem affordable, but you really do get what you pay for, especially with teeth whitening.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are not inexpensive, and you can invest a significant amount for minimal results. For this reason, so many people in Madera, CA turn to professional teeth whitening kits provided by their cosmetic dentist. 

Getting Started with At-Home Teeth Whitening

The first step with professional take-home tooth whitening is an appointment with your dental hygienist for a thorough cleaning. The goal is to remove every trace of plaque and tartar that could inhibit whitening or cause uneven results.

Impressions of your teeth will also be taken to customize whitening trays that cover every surface of your teeth. When your trays are ready, you’ll stop by your Madera dental office to pick them up, along with a prescription-strength supply of whitening gel.

How the At-Home Teeth Whitening Process Works

You will be instructed to place the whitening gel in the custom trays and wear them daily for 20-30 minutes for two weeks. Since the trays are customized to fit your teeth specifically, you don’t have to worry that the gel will seep out and irritate your gums.

Since it’s prescribed by a professional, the whitening gel you use is also stronger than anything you can purchase at your local drug store. This means that you will see dramatic whitening results in as little as two weeks that are far beyond what you can achieve with OTC kits.

Maintaining Your Bright, White Smile

You will love the transformative results you see, and you can easily maintain them by using your custom trays and leftover whitening gel to touch up your smile once a month.

Visiting your Madera dentist for teeth cleanings every six months is another way to extend the results for as long as possible.
