In-office whitening is done in our office. These products are much stronger than the take-home bleach products, since in-office products have more hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient. They are sometimes used with a light or laser.
The in-office procedure is usually completed in about one hour. To help protect the mouth, the patient’s gum tissues are covered either with a rubber dam (a thin sheet of latex rubber that keeps the teeth dry during treatment) or a protective gel.
At-home whitening usually contains the active ingredient carbamide peroxide. At-home whiteners are not as strong as in-office whiteners, since they are meant to be used over the period of days or weeks.
If you use a product at home, your Pediatric Dental Specialist dentist will first make special bleaching trays for your upper and lower teeth. The bleaching gel is placed in the trays, which are worn for short periods during the day or even overnight as specified in the product directions or by your dentist or manufacturer.
Is your child afraid of visiting the dentist? Do they have extreme levels of anxiety whenever they visit the dentist? Oral Sedation or Nitrous Oxide is available for children who may need that something extra to feel calm or more confident about their dental visit. Sedation options can help them relax.
