Some patients prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort and privacy of their homes. At-home whitening can take up to three weeks to achieve full results, but many patients prefer this type of treatment over in-office procedures because it allows them more control over the process. Patients can choose when to perform treatments and do touch-ups without having to make a dental appointment. At-home whitening from your Arlington Heights dentist produces professional-quality results when it is most convenient for you.
Nite White ® and Day White ®
Nite White ® consists of a carbamide peroxide gel that is placed into custom-fitted trays worn over the teeth. After about two weeks of wearing the whitening trays while you sleep, you will achieve a noticeably whiter smile. If you would prefer not to sleep with a whitening tray, you may whiten your teeth during the day with Day White ®. With Day White ®, you will wear your custom-fitted trays for 30 minutes, twice a day. In roughly 14 days, your smile will be up to ten shades lighter.
Opalescence ® Whitening
Opalescence ® is another at-home whitening treatment that is delivered with the use of mouth trays that are custom designed for you by Dr. Engelberg. This whitening system comes in a variety of strengths so that Dr. Engelberg can choose the exact formula you need for your level of discoloration and tooth sensitivity. The formula also includes fluoride to help strengthen the tooth enamel, ensuring less tooth sensitivity and increased protection against cavities.
