There's three different ways to whiten your teeth. And of course, like everything else, there's three different price ranges and the way things work that way. The simplest, easiest way to do it is with the over-the-counter Crest White Strips. We have another brand in the office that I think works. It's a little easier to use than the Crest White Strips, but they work. They certainly have an effect, but they're limited over-the-counter with the concentration of strength they can use, so that you can only get so much and it takes some effort to use.
In the office, we also can make custom trays for whitening. The trays fit over the teeth. They're comfortable. You would put a solution in the trays. We have you wear the solution for about 30 minutes a day. It can be done at any time that's convenient for you: when you're watching TV in the evenings, put them in in the morning before you take your shower, while you're getting dressed—whenever it's convenient for you, and we get a great result. It's really nice. Then when we're done, we have you keep the trays and a year later, two years later, when you're aware that they're not quite as white as they once were, you can just get the solution and use the same trays, so it's even cheaper to do it that way. That's my favorite way to do it.
Some people don't have the discipline to put the trays in every day. For those people, we can do the whitening in the office. It's one appointment in the office. We put the solution on there—it’s kind of boring. It takes an hour and a half to two hours, but you don't have to worry about doing it every day. We also get a nice result with that also. Whatever fits your schedule or your personality and your finances, there's no reason not to have whiter teeth if that's something that you desire. We can do it.
