Over time, our teeth can stain and discolor. The causes of teeth staining are numerous: aging, tobacco use, eating certain foods like berries, and drinking wine, tea, coffee, sports drinks, and sodas. This discoloration can often be unsightly, but there are methods available to whiten teeth. With that in mind, we at Dental Partners of Boston proudly offer our patients both take-home and in-office teeth whitening services that will give you a brighter, whiter smile and improve the overall look of your teeth. Before committing to a procedure, it is important to know the differences between take-home teeth whitening and in-office teeth whitening.
A take-home teeth whitening kit can provide you some flexibility and customization when it comes to brightening your teeth. Dental Partners of Boston provides custom take-home teeth whitening trays. These trays are made with custom impressions of your upper and lower teeth created by our experienced dentists here in the office. We'll help you determine how many shades brighter you want your teeth and adjust the amount of whitening gel used in your trays. Here are just a few of the advantages of using take-home teeth whitening procedures:
In-office teeth whitening is a one-time procedure that usually takes less than an hour to complete. When you choose in-office teeth whitening, the trained dental specialists and cosmetic dentists of Dental Partners of Boston will begin by evaluating your teeth. After the initial examination, simple preparations are made for the teeth whitening procedure, and we start the process by using a stronger whitening gel than in take-home kits. In-office teeth whitening services offer the following advantages:
