Patients are always asking the doctors and staff of Southern Cross Dental about how they can get their whitest and brightest smile, and have often tried over the counter products with mixed results. The best way to see results from whitening is to have custom trays made and follow dentist instructions for application of whitening gel.
When a patient wants to begin the teeth whitening process, we begin with a consultation. Based on the level of staining, a dentist can project what results can be expected. Then, impressions are taken of the upper and lower teeth are taken. These impressions are sent to a lab and used to create trays customized the patient’s teeth and bite. On a second visit when the custom trays have arrived, a dentist or staff member shows the patient how to fill the trays with whitening gel and then fit them over the teeth. Whitening treatments can be received in the office and monitored by a dentist, and completed at home following instructions from the dentist.
