Professional whitening options
We often get asked about whitening options, and here at Dr. Kuker's office we have a few different options to help you achieve your esthetic goals.
1. In-Office BOOST: This procedure is done by your dental hygienist, and typically takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. First, we take impressions to fabricate your custom trays. Next, we apply a barriers to your gums and then apply a professional strength bleach. Typically, this procedure will whiten (or boost) your teeth several shades, and then you can continue to whiten your teeth with your custom trays at home.
2.Custom trays only: Custom trays are great. Because they are specifically made for your teeth, it holds the bleach on the teeth and away from your gums. Because of this, we can give you a stronger (35%) bleach to use. Wear the tray with bleach for 20-30 minutes. (based on sensitivity until your desired results are achieved) DO NOT WEAR OVER NIGHT! The great thing about these trays is that you keep them for long term use. You only replace the gel when your syringe is gone.
3. Opalescence GO: This is a great option if you have a special occasion coming up. We provide 10 upper and 10 lower trays. They are made out of a waxy material that adheres to your teeth. These trays are not custom, so they don't use bleach quite as strong as you can get for your custom trays. You can expect to get about 3-4 shades brighter.
