Over time, foods that can stain a white shirt can darken our teeth. Whitening is a great option for cosmetic purposes. Unfortunately, the pigment is added to our teeth after we eat foods and drinks such as beets, marinara sauce, red wine, coffee, and the like. Whitening your teeth is like coloring your hair. As our roots grow out, we tend to touch up for maintenance reasons. The same holds true when it comes to tooth whitening.
Ten trays come in our box of prefilled whitening trays. Depending on sensitivity, patients typically use each tray for approximately 45 minutes to an hour. When you obtain your preferred shade of white, experiment with an interval that allows you to maintain that shade (usually once every 3-6 weeks). Pro-tip: use a cotton swab to remove any of the bleach that may expel on your gums.
