Get Whiter Teeth Without Leaving the House

Take-home teeth whitening kits are a fantastic way to get a brighter, whiter smile at home - which makes them an ideal option if you’re working from home, or if you’re in lockdown and already have one of our whitening kits at home. Read on to discover how a take-home teeth whitening kit from your local National Dental Care Group or DB Dental practice can give you professional whitening results without having to set foot outside your door!

What is at-home teeth whitening?

An alternative to in-chair teeth whitening - which is performed in one of our dental practices - professional at-home teeth whitening involves the use of a take-home whitening kit that includes custom dental trays and a special whitening gel. With a take-home kit, you can safely and effectively whiten your teeth at home, following the instructions provided to you by your dentist.

What are the benefits of take-home teeth whitening?

There are a number of advantages to opting for take-home teeth whitening:

● It’s convenient

A take-home teeth whitening kit is ideal for times when you either can’t leave your home (such as during lockdown or quarantine) or if it’s easier to perform this activity from home. With at-home whitening, you benefit from safe, professional whitening under the supervision of your dentist, all from the comfort of your own home.

● It’s less invasive

One reason why some people prefer take-home kits to in-chair whitening is the fact that teeth whitening from home is less invasive. You simply apply the whitening gel and wear the custom dental trays based on your dentist’s instructions.

● It’s safe

DIY teeth whitening products may contain harsh bleaching chemicals which can damage your teeth and gums, especially if used without custom fitted application trays. As professional teeth whitening is performed under the supervision of a dental professional - even when undertaken from home - it’s a much safer option.

● It’s customised to you

The strength of the whitening solution will be based on your individual needs, while the dental trays are customised to suit you. You can even sometimes choose your preferred flavour of whitening gel for a pleasant experience!

● It’s effective

Our take-home teeth whitening treatments use professional-strength whitening gels, making them a highly effective way to remove stains and discolouration, leaving you with a visibly whiter smile.

How long does take-home teeth whitening take?

At-home whitening takes a little longer than in-chair teeth whitening. While you may notice a slight difference after the first session, optimal results will take between one and two weeks to show.

Your dentist will advise you on how long to wear your trays per session, which will depend on the amount of carbamide peroxide contained in the gel. Depending on the type of whitening kit, you may need to wear your trays for a few hours each day, or overnight while you sleep.
