Home Whitening Kits
The Home-bleaching process – uses the same bleaching agent as the in-office type, but with lower bleaching gel concentration (10-15%). Currently, there are several types of home-bleaching products for the patients to choose from according to preference. The home-bleaching treatment takes about 5-7 days. The 3 methods of home-bleaching treatment are: A reusable dental tray, containing bleaching / whitening gel, is inserted over the teeth for 2-3 days, consecutively, for 1-3 hours a day, or as recommended by the dentist. The benefit of this treatment is that the dental tray fits each particular patient, while the drawback is that the dental tray must be washed thoroughly to ensure cleanliness prior to each repeated use of the dental tray, A disposable dental tray is similar to the reusable kind, but is used only once, and is packed as a pair (upper & lower tray) complete with bleaching / whitening gel in water melon, or mint flavors. A lipstick, with small brush (containing bleaching / whitening agent), is another alternative offering convenience of use and portability at any preferred time.
