At-Home Teeth Whitening
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO WHITEN THE STAINS IN YOUR SMILE, it is always safer and more effective to choose a professional teeth whitening system under the direction of a dentist. Though in-office teeth whitening systems are available, most Smile For Life dentists also offer at-home teeth whitening systems. The media is flooded with advertisements for do-it-yourself remedies, but some of these treatments can be damaging to your teeth and ineffective at fully whitening. With Smiles For Life, you can enjoy a professional at-home teeth whitening system under the care of a dentist while making a difference in the life of a child.
While an at-home teeth whitening system is often less expensive than an in-office professional teeth whitening system, they are still very effective though they generally take a little longer. The Day White and Nite White teeth whitening systems use the only at-home teeth whitening formula that combines amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), potassium nitrate, and fluoride for several benefits in addition to a white smile.
Benefits of Day White or Nite White:
•Effectively whitens teeth
•Rebuilds tooth enamel
•Reduces tooth sensitivity by 30%
•Adds luster to your smile
At-Home Teeth Whitening Procedure:
A dental cleaning and oral exam are both recommended prior to professional teeth whitening. Your dentist can help you determine whether you qualify for Day White or Nite White at-home teeth whitening.
After your initial consultation, you will be fitted with custom-molded teeth whitening trays and given a teeth whitening formula.
For both Nite White and Day White at-home teeth whitening systems, the tooth whitening formula is applied directly to the whitening trays, which are worn nightly or daily, respectively, until the desired shade is reached. The teeth whitening formula contains active ingredients, which slowly penetrate through the tooth enamel and bleach out any stains. Length of treatment varies depending on the current tooth shade and desired results.
Day White: The Day White teeth whitening system works best for patients who clench their teeth in their sleep. The teeth whitening trays should be worn twice a day for 30 minutes for best results.
Nite White: For patients who don’t want to hassle with teeth whitening trays during the day, Nite White trays are worn nightly. (Note: the Nite White teeth whitening system is often referred to as Night White but the correct brand name is Nite White.)
