Teeth Whitening Trays
At-home whitening trays will provide minor results within a few days, but the full effect will take 2-3 weeks to emerge. You can purchase this teeth whitening option over the counter, but we always recommend getting it from a dentist’s office. OTC options are less effective, and it will take longer to see results. If you choose trays from Lewis Family & Implant Dentistry, we can create a customized tray to maximize your results. This tray that will hold the whitening gel contains carbamide peroxide as the primary whitening ingredient.
Teeth Whitening Strips
While the process and time invested is similar to whitening trays, results from whitening strips are typically a bit faster. These are plastic strips that are directly applied to the teeth, with specialized strips for the top teeth and bottom teeth. For best results, you can apply twice a day for approximately 30 minutes each time. After two weeks of diligent application, your desired results should be achieved. These strips can cause some gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.
Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
For whitening toothpaste, several weeks to several months of use are required to see results, depending on the quality and frequency of use. Often times, these types of toothpaste are harsh on the teeth and can damage your gums too. Success is not guaranteed, but these pastes are effective for some. We recommend asking your dentist if a whitening toothpaste is safe, as some OTC toothpaste can damage tooth enamel.
