Whitening is the procedure of making teeth whiter and therefore more attractive. Dr. Keith Nowicki DDS
in Fraser MI
uses several methods: Zoom! and custom tray whitening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 1 hour, once or twice a day. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth, the trays should be used every several months. Did we mention Free Bleach? For any new patient that completes x-rays, exam, and cleaning, we will give a free custom bleach kit.
The end result, whether using trays at home or doing Zoom!, is the same. The cost of the tray method is about half compared to Zoom!, and there is usually less post-treatment sensitivity.
