At Home Teeth Whitening
At McCartney Dental we find the best results are achieved with at home whitening.
With this type of teeth whitening, you will have moulds/impressions taken of your teeth and custom trays will be made to fit your teeth. You will wear these clear trays with the whitening gel in them to contact the teeth. The type and strength of gel that is used are determined by one of our dentists.
You will have 2 choices when it comes to when you wear your trays. You will either wear them at night when you sleep or for a shorter time (20-30 min) during the day. These take-home trays should be worn for approximately 1-2 weeks to allow your teeth to reach their maximum white shade.
Typically after the first 1-2 week whitening session, you will only need to touch up for a day or two a few times a year.
