Teeth whitening is a quick way to remove years of discoloration due to aging, genetics, lifestyle, staining foods and drinks, and other factors. If you’ve thought about trying the over-the-counter teeth whitening kits you’ve seen in the stores, you should consider consulting with your dentist to choose from a variety of safe, effective treatment options done in the care of a professional. Read on to learn more about professional at-home teeth whitening kits and why you should consider them.
DayWhite and NiteWhite are powerful at-home professional teeth whitening kits that can help you whiten your teeth safely and effectively with little to no sensitivity like what you often find with over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. All take-home formulas are made of a unique blend of ingredients to help protect enamel and reduce sensitivity. During your consultation, Dr. Konig will help you determine the best whitening kit for your needs.
Both Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite are at-home kits that consist of special trays that are custom-molded to fit your mouth. You simply put a teardrop size of tooth whitening gel into each tray and gently place the trays over your teeth. When you’re done wearing the tray each day, you clean them out with cold water and brush your teeth as you normally do.
Whitening during the day
DayWhite is a hydrogen peroxide solution ideal for people who want to wear trays for 30-90 minutes each day, depending on the formula strength to address your level of tooth surface staining. You’ll see noticeable results in as little as two weeks with consistent daily use.
Some people would rather whiten overnight using the special custom-molded trays. NiteWhite lets you whiten your teeth while you sleep. It’s a carbamide peroxide solution that’s also available in different strengths and provided results in two weeks.
