Hello, I'm Dr. Cindy Roark, chief clinical director of Coast Dental. Many people use a kit to whiten their teeth at home. Today, I'm going to talk about using the Opalescence tooth whitener. First, it's important to know that just about any at-home kit is going to be a lower strength than a professional whitening performed in a dental office. Because of that, at-home kits require you to keep the bleach on your teeth longer and that can damage your teeth and gums. I always recommend that you talk to your dentist about having an in-office treatment instead. However, Opalescence tooth whitening systems, even the take home kind, are only available through a dentist. They are available in different strengths so ask your dentist which one is right for you. They will create a custom-made tray like this for you. When you get home, the first step will be to rinse it thoroughly with warm water and let it dry. Then, place a small drop of the whitening gel in the bottom arch of each tooth impression. Next, press the tray firmly onto your teeth wiping off any gel that might squeeze out. Repeat with the tray made for your bottom teeth. Keep the trays in your mouth for the amount of time that your dentist recommended. Don't be tempted to overdo it, it could be both painful and dangerous. When you are finished, remove the trays and brush your teeth to remove any leftover gel. Rinse the trays and allow them to air dry before putting them away. Then repeat the process daily for the amount of time your dentist told you to. Your teeth should whiten after about a week. If you want faster results, talk to your dentist about a stronger quicker choice that can be done in an office. In the amount of time that it takes to get the custom tray fitted, you could have the in-office whitening completed and leave immediately with a whiter smile. Thank you for watching. I'm Dr. Cindy Roark with Coast Dental.
