How Teeth Whitening Works
Although there are several cosmetic teeth whitening methods available, Dr. Pham recommends professionally dispensed take-home whitening kits to her patients because they are easy to use and they produce the best results. Take-home kits use a low-concentration peroxide gel that is applied to the teeth using custom-made bleaching trays. The trays are made of a flexible plastic material and are custom-made to fit the contours of your teeth and gums so that the bleaching gel stays on your teeth and away from your gums. The bleaching gel is placed inside the bleaching trays and the trays are placed inside the mouth. The gel remains on the teeth for an hour or so per day. The bleach slowly but steadily whitens your teeth over a week of use. Dentist dispensed whitening kits contain gel for the one-week treatment plus enough extra gel for touch-ups at three and six months.
Why Dentist-Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Trays are Best
Dentist dispensed take-home whitening kits have several distinct advantages when compared to over the counter kits.
1. The gels in dentist dispensed kits contain higher concentration of bleach than over-the-counter kits.
2. Dentist dispensed kits use a custom fitted trays that ensures that the bleach stays in contact with the teeth.
3. Custom fitted trays create a seal that keeps saliva from coming into contact with the bleaching gel and diluting its strength
4. Custom trays create a seal that keeps the bleaching agent away from the gums, preventing potential irritation of the gums.
Dr. Pham recommends the Dental Nite White and Day White ACP whitening system made by Discus, a leader in the development of advanced dental materials. This is the only take-home cosmetic teeth whitening kit containing amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), which is a proven enamel re-builder. It also contains a sensitivity-reducing potassium nitrate for patient comfort and fluoride to help fight tooth decay.
