We now offer pre-filled bleaching trays for smile whitening.  No more impressions and no more clean up.  Simply apply the trays and wear for 20 minutes a day then throw the trays away.  It's simple, easy and affordable.  Come to White Orchid Dental and ask for pre-filled bleaching trays.  you will receive 10 upper trays and 10 lower trays for only $99.00   

 

Home Teeth Whitening  (also known as ‘Tray Bleaching’) involves the use of custom-made trays and prescription strength whitening gels by you at home. Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth. Clear thin trays (similar to mouth guards) are custom designed by our professionals. You will easily place a clear peroxide whitening gel into the trays and wear them for approximately one hour every day for three weeks. This can be repeated until the desired effect is realized.

 

We offer different strength gels. Our goal will be to use the strength that achieves the greatest effect with the least chance for sensitivity.

 

Determination of the longevity of the lightening results is difficult since everyone has different habits. Smoking, coffee, and red wine are all things that will stain the smile more quickly.

 

We suggest that when you begin to see a slight darkening, use your trays and gels for a booster session over 1 to 3 days duration. Tubes of gels can be easily obtained at our office.

 

Please realize that the whitening gels will not change the color of crowns or fillings.

This will be considered at the consultation appointment.

 

If you are interested in whitening your smile, please call and schedule a consultation appointment for the home whitening service.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ABOUT HOME WHITENING:

 

Q: How do Crest Whitestrips and other over-the-counter products compare to Professional Teeth Whitening Procedures?

 

A: Crest Whitestrips are a common over the counter method of whitening a smile but these do have limitations compared to the professional teeth whitening services at White Orchid Dental.

*The Crest Whitestips do not cover all the teeth in the average smile. This means that often people will recognize the difference in color between your bleached teeth and non-bleached teeth every time you smile. Professional teeth bleaching allows you to bleach all your teeth, even your molars.

*The peroxide in Whitestrips are of lower concentration than the smile whitening gels provided by professionals. The professionals will help to find the concentration of teeth whitening gel that will provide you with the optimum whitening effect and minimal sensitivity.

*Also, because trays are not customized for you, the one size fits all Whitestrips tend to spread gels over the delicate tissues rather than concentrating the gels as much as possible on the teeth you wish to bleach.
