If discolored teeth have you hiding your smile, it’s time to seek professional help.
Cosmetic dentist Warren Gase in Cincinnati, OH, offers professional teeth whitening that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
Our take-home treatments outperform over-the-counter methods and, with a dentist supervising your care, your oral health is protected.
Simple, Affordable Teeth Whitening
While mouthwashes, whitening toothpastes, and strips may remove some discoloration, they do not penetrate as deeply as the professional-strength gels we use. Our professional teeth whitening formulas leave you with a stunning smile that store-bought products just can't match. Patients appreciate that our kits offer professional-strength whitening with the convenience of at-home treatment.
Comfortable, Custom Trays
Our teeth whitening treatment uses custom whitening trays. During an in-office visit to our Cincinnati practice, Dr. Gase will create your trays using an impression of your smile. The trays tightly hug the entire surface of your tooth, evenly applying the whitening gel. Over-the-counter trays, in contrast, are ill-fitting and often result in the whitening product leaking and irritating the gums.
Our Take-Home Whitening System
Our Cincinnati practice uses the professional Opalescence® take-home whitening system, which is not available in stores. This teeth whitening method allows you to whiten your teeth at home on a schedule that is convenient for you.
Each kit includes customized trays based on your bite along with syringes pre-filled with either a hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel whitening solution. These solutions are available in varying concentrations, allowing Dr. Gase to tailor treatment to your unique needs. The thick, sticky gel is specially formulated to keep it from migrating to your gums and causing irritation so that you can safely whiten your smile in the shortest possible time.
Our take-home treatment offers faster, more predictable results and consistently outperforms store-bought whitening products in less time.
Using Your Take-Home Trays
Loading Your Custom Trays
The pre-filled syringes make it easy to place the whitening solution in each tray. Simply apply a continuous line of the carbamide or hydrogen peroxide gel about halfway up the side of a tray from one end to the other. Be sure to apply the gel on the side of the tray that corresponds with the front of your teeth. You should use about one-third to one-half of a syringe for each tray.
How to Wear the Whitening Trays
To wear your trays, place them over the teeth and gently press down. Any excess gel that escapes from the tray should be wiped away using your toothbrush. Dr. Gase will advise you on how long to wear your trays. The time will vary depending on the whitening formula selected for your treatment. Times can range from as little as 30 minutes to overnight.
Removing the Whitening Gel
After you remove the trays, brush your teeth as you would normally to remove the remaining gel and rinse your mouth twice. Next, clean the whitening solution from the trays with a soft toothbrush and cool tap water. Store the trays in the case that came with your kit. If you experience any sensitivity, stop your treatment and call Dr. Gase.
