The gel may require a specialized light to activate the whitening agent.
Take home whitening trays have comparable results to that from in-house whitening. To do whitening at home it require a customized clear tray. To make this tray the dentist takes an impression of your bite. The tray takes 7 days to be made. once that is complete we will send your trays with your six month supply of whitening gel to your home. To whitening your teeth, simply apply the whitening gel to the tray and place the tray on your teeth.
We recommend having a consult with your dentist so he can determine what whitening treatment suits your needs. Your dentist may need to perform an exam to see if you have healthily enough teeth for a tooth whitening treatment.
