Before & after patient in Ft. Oglethorpe for teeth whiteningDon’t waste money on drugstore whitening toothpastes or strips that don’t provide the results you want. Professional teeth whitening with Dr. Nancy Snyder can brighten dull or discolored teeth, giving you a radiant smile quickly. Using take-home whitening trays provided by Dr. Snyder allows you to enjoy a comfortable experience while achieving maximum results.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

You may be a good candidate for teeth whitening if you have:

  • Stains or discoloration due to your eating/drinking habits, smoking or the aging process
  • Are in general good health
  • Do not have any areas of tooth decay or gum disease
  • Do not have fillings, crowns or other restorations that won’t respond to whitening treatment

The best way to determine whether teeth whitening is right for you and your needs is to meet with Dr. Snyder for a one-on-one cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Using Take-Home Whitening Kits

Thanks to Dr. Snyder, you can whiten in the comfort of your own home. At-home whitening does require an office visit so we can take impressions of your teeth to use to create a customized tray. However, once you receive your trays, you can whiten at your own pace. A well-fitting tray ensures the bleaching agent makes direct contact with your teeth and doesn’t leak onto your gums or the other soft tissues of your mouth.

Once your customized whitening trays are ready, and you have picked up your bleaching gel, you can start whitening at home. You will fill the trays with the gel, according to the instructions set forth by the system’s manufacturer and our team. You can wear the trays while you watch television, work on your computer, clean or do chores. You may have some slight sensitivity at first, but this generally subsides quickly. We will specify how long to wear the trays each day, and how many days to whiten. You will start to see results more gradually with at-home whitening

Benefits of Whitening at Home

The best benefit of whitening in the comfort of your own home is the convenience. You don’t have to block time out of your schedule to sit through an in-office treatment. You can simply pop in the trays when you are doing chores, watching television or simply relaxing. This is an excellent option if you have a demanding work or school schedule, or you cannot find childcare to cover for you for several hours while you attend a whitening appointment.

Whitening at home with customized trays is usually a more cost-effective option than in-office treatment. You will receive your customized whitening trays and syringes of whitening gel at a lower cost than what you would pay to book a professional chairside whitening appointment. Even though at-home whitening is cheaper, it provides excellent results!
