Some basic procedures include:
- Tray Whitening - We’ll prepare a customized gel that is applied on your teeth with the help of a custom-made tray. The tray is designed to work on all the teeth and causes no pain. You may opt for an in-office treatment or get customized trays to apply at home.
- OTC Teeth Whitener - Over-the-counter whiteners are also available, however, we recommend that you don't use them without your dentist’s approval as they may damage the teeth and cause other problems, including discoloration.
- Teeth-whitening Strips - These strips contain chemicals that can whiten your teeth. You have to apply the strip on the teeth and wear it for about 30 minutes, twice a day.
- Whitening Mouthwash and Toothpaste - This is the right option if your teeth are not very severely discolored. They contain abrasives that can remove stains. However, they don’t lighten the natural color of your teeth.
