Home Teeth Whitening
What is the difference between an over-the counter whitening products and dentists' supervised whitening products? There are differences between the two, include:

1. Strength of bleaching agent.
Over-the-counter home use products and dentist-supervised home products usually contain a lower strength-bleaching
2. Mouthpiece trays. With dentist-supervised home bleaching products, your dentist takes an impression of your teeth for a custom-made mouthpiece tray to exactly fit your teeth. This customization allows for maximum contact between the whitening gel and the teeth. Over-the-counter whitening products contain a free size mouthpiece tray that may be ill-fitting. This can irritate the gum and soft tissue. With in-office procedures, the bleaching agent is applied directly to the teeth.
3. Additional protective measures. In the office setting, your dentist will apply either a gel to the gum tissue prior to treatment to protect your gums and oral cavity from the effects of the bleaching. Over-the-counter products don't provide these extra protective measures.
4. Supervised vs. unsupervised process. For a dentist supervised home bleaching, an oral examination is performed and your medical history is considered. This helps determine how your teeth became discolored and if bleaching is an appropriate course of treatment.

Postcare Instructions for Home Bleaching

1. Avoid consuming color-staining foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, coke, etc. as well as smoking for at least one week
2. Proper oral hygiene care should be carried out to maintain and avoid diminished whitening results
3. If experiencing some sensitivity in teeth for take-home bleaching
• Wear the tray for a shorter period of time (for example, two 30-minute sessions vs. two 60-minute sessions)
• Stop whitening your teeth for two to three days to allow your teeth to adjust to the whitening process

Care for Tooth Whitened Teeth

1. Brush at least twice a day. It is good practice to brush after eating and before bedtime.
2. Floss at least once or twice a day.
3. Rinse with fluoride rinse before bed. Swish the fluoride rinse vigorously in your mouth for at least one minute. Do not swallow any of the rinse and do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes
4. Be careful about chewing toffees, gum, grainy rolls and tough food in this area
5. See your dentist for regular professional check-ups and cleanings
