Home Teeth Whitening Overview
There are numerous over-the-counter options for whitening your teeth at home, but they do not always deliver what they promise and you can end up wasting your time and money. At People's Dental, we offer professional-strength teeth whitening kits that can be done at your home. At-home teeth whitening kits from our skilled dental team are a safe and effective system to conveniently brighten your enamel and remove stains. We put together your home whitening kit to meet your needs and goals so you get your best results. Your home whitening kit will include mouth trays that make the whitening process more comfortable.

Best Candidates for Home Teeth Whitening
Should you wish to brighten your smile in the comfort of your home, we might recommend a customized kit for at-home tooth whitening. Your dental enamel may appear dull or have yellow and dark stains that have accumulated over the years. You may have tried whitening products from the store, but found them ineffective, uncomfortable, or damaging to your teeth. At People's Dental, the strength of the whitening solution is customized to your requirements and goals, so it is a great choice if you have sensitive teeth. Your kit could be used alone or after an in-office whitening treatment to maintain your results.
What to Expect with Home Teeth Whitening
Your at-home whitening kit will be put together with teeth bleaching gel and mouth trays. Prior to creating your home whitening kit, we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and oral health in order to select the very best whitening strength and formula. For mouth trays, you can choose to have impressions taken of your teeth so custom trays could be produced, but it will take longer to get them. Meanwhile, we provide professional dental trays that can be used immediately. Once your kit is ready, we will talk you through the specific instructions needed for each treatment, for example how long and how often to use your kit.
Home Teeth Whitening Follow-Up
Final results will be based on the strength of the whitening solution, your initial enamel color, and how many times you use your whitening treatment. When you reach your desired shade, you can stop using your at-home kit. To maintain your results, you should keep a good oral hygiene routine and make lifestyle changes, including staying away from staining foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Also, you should schedule bi-annual cleanings at People's Dental where stains can be polished away, as well as annual dental exams so we can check on your overall oral health. You need to keep your whitening trays clean and in a safe place, so if you wish to restart your treatment, you would only need to purchase more whitening gel.
Home Teeth Whitening Insurance Coverage
Home teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, which means it is usually not covered by dental insurance. At your initial consultation, we can talk about your cost estimates based on your options, go over payment methods we accept and provide information on low-interest medical financing.
