One of the solutions for addressing discolored teeth is professional take-home whitening kits. They contain a unique solution and specialized trays designed to whiten teeth fast.

Our dental team at Chicago Dental Esthetics will provide teeth-whitening kits after a thorough oral health evaluation. Our dental specialists will ensure the solution does not damage your tooth enamel. The process is much safer than conventional trays and less likely to lead to complications.

What Are Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits?

Take-home whitening kits are a set of trays fitted over the teeth consisting of bleach. They contain a hydrogen peroxide solution, which whitens the teeth gradually. The trays are customized to match the shape and size of your teeth.

An improperly sized tray could harm your gum line and waste the bleach solution. The distance between the tip of the tooth and your gums should be evaluated accurately during the diagnostic process.

A precise fit is essential for preventing gum irritation and tooth erosion. It also ensures comfort when the trays are on your teeth.

Customized take-home kits are issued by our dentist and are easy to use. It will take approximately two weeks to see the results. The trays must use a precise amount of dental solvent to avoid damaging the enamel.

Take-home kits offer better results than conventional over-the-counter whitening trays. They employ both bleach and concentrated light to achieve remarkably white teeth.

What Are the Advantages Over OTC Teeth Whitening Kits?

The problem with over-the-counter whitening trays is that they are not tailored for your specific case. The generic trays use a concentration of bleach that can damage your tooth enamel. Many people develop dental issues like tooth sensitivity.

The take-home kit procedure must begin with a dental health assessment. The process ensures whitening trays have the correct dosage suitable for your teeth. Tooth sensitivity occurs when the bleach erodes the tooth enamel, exposing the nerves.

An improperly sized tray may irritate your gums and cause inflammation. If you have gum disease, it can worsen symptoms. Severe cases of inflammation could cause loose teeth or tooth loss.

Our dental team will monitor the teeth-whitening process. You can receive expert assistance if you develop complications like gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.

What to Expect From Custom Teeth Whitening Kits

The process begins with an assessment of your teeth and gums. If you have symptoms of gum disease, our dental team will recommend treating the condition first. Whitening teeth before addressing underlying issues can trigger numerous health complications.

The diagnosis also evaluates the extent of discoloration. Dental specialists will use data from the process to tailor the treatment to your needs. An accurate diagnostic process is crucial for optimal results.

Our dentist will apply a tooth whitening solution during the procedure. A laser is used to activate the bleach. The solution remains on your teeth for 30 minutes to an hour. You will attend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
