At the office, the dentist will make molds of the patient’s teeth to create a custom-made dental tray. These trays protect the gums from the whitening gel, as contact may be harmful and it also minimizes discomfort and irritation during the treatment. Once at home, the patient will fill the tray with prescription strength whitening gel and leave in for a designated amount of time, typically 45 minutes, each day. Some patients may see visible results after one treatment, but most patients need 2 – 4 weeks to see their full results.
how much does home teeth whitening Cost?
On average, home teeth whitening kits cost $400, however this varies based on the patient’s current tooth color and goals. The dentist will go over the patient’s options and associated costs during the initial consultation.
