Brighten Your Look with Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Whiter teeth not only improve your smile, but enhance your overall appearance, as well. Here at Craft Dentistry in Manhattan, KS, your cosmetic dentist, Dr. David Craft, offers take-home whitening kits to brighten up patient's smiles—read on to learn more!

Take-home kits are easy to use

Precision is important when whitening your teeth, for if you use trays that don't properly fit your mouth, you will likely experience uneven results. Additionally, properly fitted trays also ensure that the whitening agent doesn't touch your gums or roots (sensitivity or irritation can occur if whiteners come in contact with roots or gums.)

Your Manhattan cosmetic dentist will mold upper and lower trays that cover your teeth, and only your teeth, providing safe, consistent results. He'll also give you a supply of whitening gel, which you will add to the trays before placing them over your smile. Trays are usually used several times a week for one hour at a time.

Teeth whitening targets the source of stains

Every time you consume food or drink that contains dark or bright pigments, some of these pigments inevitably seep into the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel. Eventually, this collection of pigments can make your teeth look dull and yellow. While brushing certainly improves the appearance and health of your teeth, brushing alone won't change the look of an already dull and stained smile.

Fortunately, the whitening gel that you will use to whiten at home contains hydrogen peroxide, a natural bleaching agent. The hydrogen peroxide gently breaks apart the stain-causing pigment, leaving your teeth whiter and brighter.

Enjoy the benefits of at-home whitening

Take-home whitening offers several advantages, including:

  • Convenience: You whiten when it's most convenient for you, whether that's while you're watching your favorite TV show at night, or in the morning before you go to work.
  • Improved Confidence: It's difficult to feel confident if your smile is dull—whitening can give you a much-needed confidence boost.
  • Effectiveness: Most people notice a three-to eight-shade improvement in the color of their teeth after whitening.
