Home teeth whitening is where you apply a special teeth whitening gel into a personally created gum shield or ‘tray’ and wear it overnight for 1 – 2 weeks. At Castle Dental we recommend the Boutique at home whitening system.
This is a cheaper alternative to combination teeth whitening, but it does takes longer to achieve the results that you get with a combined home and in-surgery whitening system such as Enlighten.
One of the advantages of home teeth whitening is that once you have been provided with your personal teeth whitening trays, you can top up the whiteness of your teeth by purchasing top up whitening agent syringes from our practice.
At Far Headingley Dental Care we use the very effective Boutique whitening product, ‘By Night’. This is a 16% carbamide peroxide gel, containing potassium nitrate, which is proven desensitiser. Worn for 4 hours, or overnight in personal whitening trays, this gel is designed for patients who would prefer to not have to use their trays in during the day and would prefer to whiten whilst they are asleep.
