Everyone wants a brighter, whiter smile. But not everyone knows how to safely achieve it, especially from the comfort of your own home. Sure there are DIY methods, but at home bleaching and whitening is safest under the advisement of your trusted dentist. If you want an at home tooth whitening method that is safe, convenient and affordable, ask your dentist about take home whitening trays.
Exam First, Bleach Later
Of course, your dentist needs to take a look at things before sending you home with bleaching trays. First, your teeth need to be healthy and strong before bleach can be safely applied. Your dentist will also help you to understand the reason for the discoloration of your teeth; because like it or not, bleaching isn’t always the answer. Lastly, a nice cleaning never hurts. Polishing your teeth up nicely will help you see the results of the tooth whitening.
Molded Just for You
At home tooth whitening is a great option because it is literally molded just for you. A mold will be made to make bleaching trays that fit every curve of your teeth. A well molded tray is crucial for keeping your gums safe, and for effective bleaching. The mold is made during a dental visit, and then sent to a trusted company for the trays to be made. Once the trays are made, your dentist will call you in to make sure they are a perfect fit before sending you home with your kit.
Home at Last
Once you have your trays, you will be sent home with syringes of bleach and instructions. You will need to follow these instructions very strictly and take any questions to your dentist. The bleaching chemicals can be dangerous when not used properly. You risk burning your gums and hurting your tooth’s enamel if you take matters into your own hands. With all these tools you are happily on your way to that brighter, and whiter smile!
