They comprise high-concentration hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide solutions. The kits also contain custom-made trays that perfectly fit your teeth to ensure better whitening results. 

Keep reading to find out how to use these whitening kits appropriately at home.

Using an At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit

Professional at-home teeth whitening kits must be used appropriately for best results. The steps involved in using these kits are:

  • For manufacturing the trays, the dentist will first take an impression of both your upper and lower teeth. It will take one or two weeks to prepare the trays.
  • After taking the impressions, the dentist will determine the current color of your teeth using a dental chart so that you can compare the results after the treatment.
  • The dentist will ask you to visit the clinic again as soon as the trays are ready and instruct you on how to properly apply the solution and use the trays.
  • You will need to brush and floss your teeth before applying the whitening trays.
  • The treatment must be performed for an hour each day for two weeks to obtain optimum results. While wearing the tray as well as 30 minutes after removing it, you should avoid eating, drinking, and smoking.
  • After two weeks, you should see the dentist again for a follow-up visit during which the dentist will check the results.
  • The dentist will also use an additional whitening solution if a touch-up is needed.

Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits Facts

Professional at-home teeth whitening kits provide much better results than over-the-counter whitening solutions. The trays are custom-made to fit your teeth and ensure the solution is evenly applied and stays in contact with the teeth, and also prevent saliva from diluting the bleaching agent. 

Therefore, if you want to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, professional at-home teeth whitening kits are considered the most appropriate option.   

During the treatment, we advise you to avoid the intake of drinks and foods that can stain your teeth. These might include red wine, coffee, or red sauces. 

Healthy Smiles of Birmingham offers at-home teeth whitening kits that allow you to whiten your teeth whenever and wherever you need to.
