The air polishing technique is used to safely remove biofilm and light (extrinsic) surface stains (coffee, berry, red wine)from teeth. Air polishing does not harm the enamel and is a gentle and painless technique. This technique does not whiten the teeth but does make your smile brighter.
Whitening strip/Pre filled trays can be used at home from anywhere between 15-45 min 1-2x daily depending on the product.
The plus side to these is that the tray is already pre filled and you wear for 15-20 minutes 1x per day for up to 2 weeks or until you have reached desired results. Most patients wear for 1 week and keep a few extra trays for touch ups. This Product is great for patients who already have a lighter shade to their teeth. If you have a very difficult case however, home and in office whitening methods are used in combination.
In office whitening can be done chair side and may take up to one hour. This type of whitening is for patients that already have a lighter shade to their teeth and want to brighten them up without using trays, white strips or at home methods.
The prep time is fast and simple and requires the gel to stay on your teeth for 20 minutes. You are able to do up to 4 rounds with this product. No LED light is required. This product typically can last anywhere between 6-12 months. Patient can always touch up with the Opalescence Go trays and whitening toothpaste as well.
Take home trays can be used for any shade on any patient. If your teeth are a lighter shade then you may not need to use this product for a long period of time. If your teeth are on the darker side you may need to use the trays for up to 2 weeks.
We would take impressions of your teeth and make custom trays for you to wear with this product. These trays can be worn anytime during the day from 20-40 min. The instructions are simple and easy to follow.
It is alway best to consult with your Dentist or Dental Hygienist before starting the whitening process to see which option would be the best choice.
If you have sensitive teeth you should use a Prescribed Fluoride toothpaste 2 weeks prior to whitening and continue to use after as well.
Avoid Coffee, Red Wine, Tomato sauce and smoking for 3-4 days post whitening for best results.
