How to use home teeth whitening kit?

  • The dentist produces his tray for each patient.
  • A kind of silicone cover for the teeth. It is with it that the gel should be applied.

  • The patient takes the tray home with the products indicated by the specialist. 
  • Many people prefer to lighten at night while they are sleeping. 
  • One hour of use per day is enough to promote whitening without generating too much sensitivity.
  • During the night, the gel used is 10% to 22% Carbamine peroxide, weaker than the gel used in offices. 
  • During the day, the option is up to 7.5% Hydrogen Peroxide. 
  • The total treatment time varies from case to case. 
  • The completion of treatment will depend on the dentist’s evaluation.

The types of teeth whitening

Laser tooth whitening: The most glamorous and desired technique. It uses whitening gels in very high concentrations (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide), applied on the teeth after the complete isolation of gums and lips.

    • Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, each lasting 1:30 hours; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.
    • Advantages: aesthetic urgencies and individuals unable to perform the home technique due to extensive gingival retractions.
    • Risks and problems: irreversible changes in the tooth enamel, inflammatory pulp irritation, and post-treatment sensitivity and unclear region next to the gums.
    • Technical highlight: due to the risks to teeth, the type of laser whitening should be restricted to infrequent applications in patients with aesthetic emergencies.

Led tooth whitening: Confused with the laser technique, it uses the same bleaching agents used in this type of tooth whitening. The difference is really because of the type of light source used. It brings the same risks and problems as the laser technique, being among the most common types of tooth whitening with the use of light.

    •  Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, with 1:30 hours each consultation; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.
    • Advantages: aesthetic urgencies and individuals unable to perform the home technique due to extensive gingival retractions.
    • Risks and problems: irreversible changes in the tooth enamel, inflammatory pulp irritation, and post-treatment sensitivity and unclear region next to the gums.
    • Technical highlight: it is less risky than the laser technique and still brings the same results. Aesthetic urgencies and quick application sessions of the whitening gel are highlights for this type of technique.

• Conventional tooth whitening (office): The simplest of the types of tooth whitening is also the one that brings the same more effective whitening results. And with the added advantage of being safer to your teeth. The only one, however, is the length of the application sessions for the bleaching gel, which takes longer compared to the techniques optimized by light (led or laser).

    •  Advantages: aesthetic urgencies and individuals unable to perform the home technique due to extensive gingival retractions.
    • Risks and problems: irreversible changes in the tooth enamel, inflammatory pulp irritation, and post-treatment sensitivity and unclear region next to the gums.
    • Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, with 1:30 hours each consultation; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.
    • Technique highlight: safer than LED and laser techniques, it brings the same lightening results. Although the application time of the whitening gel is longer, the simplicity of the procedure can even make the session faster.

• Homemade teeth whitening:  Among the types of tooth whitening, home tooth whitening is the most efficient and safe for teeth. It uses the same bleaching gels as laser, led, or conventional techniques, but applied by the patient through flexible and transparent trays. The dentist is responsible for monitoring the results and health conditions of the gums and tooth enamel, increasing or decreasing the concentration of bleaching agents.

    •  Treatment time: 7 to 21 days, with daily applications ranging from 30 minutes to 4 hours (depending on the type and concentration of the bleaching gel).
    • Advantages: superior whitening results, low risk of dental pulp aggression, effective whitening along the gingival margins, less risk for superficial stains, effective for teeth stained by antibiotics.
    • Risks and problems: increased sensitivity appears in 70% of patients, cannot be used in patients with extensive gingival retractions (gingival recession).
    • Technique highlights: safer and more efficient than other types of tooth whitening, it does not leave parts of the tooth in contact with yellow gums.

Tips for selecting the best teeth whitening kit

  • Prevention and removal of thicker stains 48 hours before any tooth whitening is essential for more effective whitening results.
  • Gingival treatment may be necessary for individuals with bleeding and inflamed gums ( gingivitis and periodontitis ).
  • The application of desensitizers minimizes or even eliminates the problems of pain and tooth sensitivity both in-home and in-office techniques.
  • Extensive gingival retraction contraindicates home tooth whitening due to the high risk of pain and intense dental sensitivity.
  • The uses of less concentrated bleaching gels, in the homemade technique, bring less sensitivity and the results are similar to procedures with more concentrated gels – only the treatment time increases.
  • Reserve the combined use of whitening techniques (home + office) for special moments such as weddings or before treatments with dental contact lenses or laminated veneers.
  • The frequency of repeated tooth whitening is more associated with irreversible damage to tooth enamel than the types of tooth whitening used.
  •  Homemade tooth whitening, although taking longer, is the safest treatment with the most efficient results.
  • The quality of the gels used, regardless of the types of tooth whitening used matter in the bleaching results.
  • The polishing of the dental enamel, after the treatment, returns the shine and gives more durability for the whitening results.
    the repetition of tooth whitening (complete cycle) every two years can be considered safe for teeth.
