The Convenience of Take-Home Whitening

You might already know that Dr. Latner can whiten your smile in one appointment with Zoom! Whitening, but did you know that our Los Angeles office also has a second whitening option? Take-home whitening is a convenient alternative to in-office whitening, and one that works especially well for patients with sensitive teeth. It’s also a good option for patients who want to give their smile an extra boost several weeks after an initial treatment with in-office whitening. Combining in-office whitening with take-home whitening is a good way to make your dazzling results last even longer.

Here’s how take-home whitening works.

First, you’ll come to see Dr. Latner of Westside Dental Associates for a special consultation. As part of that consultation, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that a set of custom whitening trays can be made. When your trays are ready, we’ll also give you a supply of professional whitening gel.

To whiten your teeth at home, simply line your trays with your whitening gel and wear them for 30 minutes a day for between one and two weeks. Over that time, the stains on your teeth will fade, revealing a more dazzling smile. While you whiten, you can take care of some chores around the house, or you can relax with a book or in front of the TV.

If in-office whitening has made your teeth sensitive in the past, take-home whitening may be more comfortable. If you still experience sensitivity, follow-up your daily treatment by lining your liners with a toothpaste like Sensodyne and wearing them for half an hour.
