Teeth WhiteningAll you have to do is look through the oral care aisle of any drugstore or grocery store and you’ll realize just how many people want to have a whiter smile. It’s not surprising - your smile is usually the first thing a new acquaintance might notice about you. However, most commercial whitening products just don’t make the cut when it comes to offering an effective result. If you are looking to get a whiter smile without sitting in the dentist’s chair, find out about our take-home whitening system in Atlanta.

Is Take-Home Whitening Similar To At-Home Whitening

Similar to the whitening system that we use in our office, our at-home whitening gel is professional-grade and not only remove stains but actually lightens the shade of your teeth! We take impressions of your smile to offer a customized set of dental trays that will evenly distribute whitening gel to all parts of your teeth for a whiter and more uniform smile.

What Is At-Home Whitening Like?

The first step will be to take these dental impressions so we can fabricate two dental trays for you to use. Once these have been made, we will pre-fill the trays with whitening gel so all you have to do is put the trays over your teeth. You will most likely wear the whitening trays for about an hour each day.

There will be a difference, however, between our in-office whitening system and the whitening system we offer from the convenience of your own home. First and foremost, you won’t get the same instant results that you will with in-office whitening because the gel will be a bit different than the one we use on your teeth. Therefore it may take a few weeks to start to see the difference in your smile; however, you will certainly see a more significant result with our at-home whitening than with any commercial product. Over-the-counter products only remove surface stains while our whitening system removes stains and also lightens teeth.
