Home Teeth Whitening: Take-Home Cosmetic Dentistry Option
Date: November 19, 2012 Richard Jones

Teeth whitening is one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatments nowadays. This may be due to the fact that whitening the shade of the teeth can dramatically improve the appearance of a person, making his or her smile much more attractive than it previously was with stained or discoloured teeth. In-office teeth whitening, or those done in the dentist’s clinic, provide the most effective whitening results in the fastest time possible; however, there are those who prefer to have their teeth whitened in the comfort of their own homes.

Home teeth whitening also provides dramatic results, but in a longer period of time. Compared to an in-office whitening procedure that can be completed successfully within an hour’s time, take-home teeth whitening products may take a few days to a few weeks to achieve the desired teeth shade. The safest and most effective home whitening products for the teeth are those that are prepared and/or given by the dentist, who can also make the necessary adjustments when it comes to the concentration of the whitening solution. The dentist will also be able to provide custom-made trays where the whitening solution will be placed, before being applied to the surface of the teeth for the whitening treatment to commence.

Teeth whitening products that can be taken home may be preferred by those who want to whiten their teeth in the privacy of their own homes. These products may be used during the daytime, or during the nighttime as one sleeps – depending on the preference of the patient. The dentist may also make adjustments to the time that the whitening solution will need to be used according to the lifestyle needs of the person who will use it, making it more convenient to do the teeth whitening in the most convenient manner possible.
