Whitening: AT HOME and IN-OFFICE
Most people hope for a whiter smile! Our office offers choices in methods which are: the BOOST® in-office treatment, at-home tray whitening, and professional strength whitening strips.
BOOST® whitening procedure may be the right choice for you if time is a factor. A proprietary whitening gel is applied after taking measures to protect the lips and gums. The immediate results are pleasing and trays with gel are recommended afterward for maintenance.
The AT-HOME tray method involves making soft trays to hold a whitening gel against the surfaces of the teeth. These trays with gel are worn from 2 hours/day to overnight. This technique takes 3-4 weeks of daily use or longer for badly stained teeth. The trays may be used once a year for a few days to a week to maintain your smile.
The professional strength whitening strips are 4x stronger than those found Over-The-Counter. This option is great for young patients of age 14 and up!
Whether you and your dentist choose at-home trays or BOOST® in the office, the final results are the same. The cost of the AT-HOME tray method is lower than the in-office BOOST®.
