Spring area dentist explains home whitening kits

 In Teeth Whitening

Home whitening kits available through a dental office are exponentially more effective than those available over-the-counter. Dr. Robert G. Dernick, DDS of the Spring and Conroe community provides home whitening kits that offer results that far surpass those available at the local drugstore.

Professional-grade whitening products are made of stronger solutions and are supervised by a dentist. They are only available through dental facilities and patients must undergo a physical examination and consultation visit with Dr. Robert G. Dernick, DDS to obtain them. The in-office whitening treatment is a fast way to achieve brilliant results in just one day, while the take-home whitening kits are often suggested for patients who want to experience gradual results and have more control over their whitening sessions.

Home whitening kits start with the fabrication of custom whitening trays. Impressions of the top and bottom teeth are used to create plastic whitening trays, which are form-fitted around the natural teeth. One is made for the upper dental arch and another for the lower. Patients fill these trays with the prescribed whitening gel and then wear on their teeth for a specific time every day. Some patients can wear them for thirty minutes at a time, while others may want to use them overnight for results that are more dramatic. This can be discussed with a dental professional who is monitoring the whitening treatments.

Patients must be consistent if they want to see the results. Patients can see the whitening achieved after just a week or two, and can continually whiten over time to maintain the results. This is the most effective way to keep the smile looking its best.

Patients who want faster results can speak with Dr. Robert G. Dernick, DDS about undergoing in-office power bleaching. This method available through his practice requires little intervention from patients. Patients rest easy in the dental chair while whitening gel is applied and activated with a specialized light and can leave the dental office with a brilliant, dazzling smile. However, the home whitening trays are often more economical for patients who are on a budget but still want to enjoy a rejuvenated appearance.
