Take-home Teeth Whitening Kits
It is safe to use
There is an alternative to visiting a dental practitioner every six weeks or spending a lot of money on ineffective over-the-counter products containing harmful chemicals. Dental clinics are now offering take-home whitening kits where your dentist will determine the best one based on the level of tooth discolouration you have.
Custom whitening tray
If you want to whiten your natural teeth and give them a brighter smile, then talk with a dentist. You'll be provided with custom-made whitening trays that fit perfectly, so you'll have maximum coverage throughout your mouth. There is less chance that the surrounding tissues will be damaged.
An affordable whitening option
At-home teeth bleaching is a lot more cost-effective than getting teeth whitened in the dentist's office, and you may even do it whenever it works for you.
Your dentist will guide you on how to use the take-home whitening kit properly. You will also be advised on how to care for the materials used for your therapy, reducing the chance of adverse side effects.
Convenient and simple
A take-home whitening kit can be a convenient solution if you have been putting off seeing your dental practitioner because of your busy schedule or just aren't bothered. You can whiten your teeth wherever and whenever you want.

FAQ’s About Teeth Whitening
The colour of your teeth might change as a result of tooth discolouration. They may not appear as white as they usually are. There could be changes in the appearance of your teeth, such as changing from white to a different shade or developing white or black spots.
Extrinsic Stains: Stains come from items that come into contact with your teeth, such as dark-coloured foods and beverages.
Intrinsic Stains: Intrinsic stains affect the inner layer of teeth. These stains are generally on the dentin, which is the hard layer that lies beneath the enamel.
Foods and drinks: Extrinsic stains can be caused by coffee, tea, soda, red wine, and certain fruits and vegetables.
Smoking: Using tobacco or smoking cigarettes can cause tooth staining.
Poor oral hygiene: Insufficient brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain particles.
Illness: Several diseases can cause discolouration of teeth, such as those that affect the enamel or dentin. Additionally, certain medications may also affect tooth colour. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments to the head and neck can discolour teeth. Furthermore, certain infections during pregnancy may affect the enamel development of babies, resulting in tooth discolouration.
Medications: Children who are still developing their teeth (before age 8 ) should avoid the antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline since they discolour their teeth. Teeth can also be stained by mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride. Discolouration of teeth may also be caused by antihistamines (like Benadryl) and antipsychotic drugs.
Silver Amalgam Filling: Silver amalgam fillings can cast a grey-black colour on the teeth.
Age-related: Your enamel wears away with age, revealing the natural colour of the dentin.
Genetics: Some people are born with naturally whiter teeth than others.
Excessive Fluoride: Teeth discolouration is caused by excessive fluoride intake, whether from natural sources such as high amounts of fluoride in water or excessive application of fluoride treatments, rinses, and toothpaste.
Trauma: Damage caused by a fall, for example, can disrupt tooth development in young children with developing teeth. Adult teeth may also be discoloured as a result of trauma.
If you’re interested in brightening your smile at home, here’s what you need to know about take-home teeth whitening kits. Take-home tooth whitening kits generally contain either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use it.
- Prepare your teeth by brushing and flossing before inserting the tray.
- To fill the compartment of the custom tray, drop a small amount of gel from bicuspid to bicuspid.
- Place the prepared tray on your teeth.
- Use a tissue or soft dry brush to remove the excess gel from the mouth. Make sure not to overfill the bleaching tray with gel. If your doctor has not told you otherwise, keep the custom tray in your mouth for 45 minutes each day.
- Remove the tray once treatment is completed then clean mouth and tray with warm water.
- For the first week, repeat the procedure every day. The procedure should be repeated every other day if your teeth or gums are sensitive. If you have reached the desired shade, stop the treatment and store the remaining whitening gel until you have scheduled your next dental appointment.
Some people may not be candidates for teeth whitening. To avoid problems, you should consult a dentist before whitening your teeth. Treatment options are available to people who need their teeth fixed and their gums healed to be eligible for teeth whitening.
Candidates for take-home kits:
- Those who have healthy teeth and gums can benefit from teeth whitening.
- You may qualify for professional take-home teeth whitening if you have yellow teeth due to the foods and drinks you consume or because of the natural effects of aging.
Not suitable for take-home kits:
- Those with gum and tooth sensitivity may have difficulty using tooth whitening chemicals.
- Those suffering from oral health conditions like chronic periodontal disease, oral cancer, or severely damaged enamel are not suitable for teeth whitening.
- Dentists recommend that teeth whitening be done after the age of 14-16. Teeth whitening isn’t recommended until all adult teeth are present, since preteens often don’t have permanent teeth.
- If an individual has noticeable dental restorations, whitening is not recommended. A dental bleach may not be effective if you have tooth-coloured restorations, such as crowns or fillings.
- The whitening gel may not be able to remove all stubborn teeth stains. Since discolouration from previous restorative treatments comes from the inside of the tooth and not from the tooth enamel, whitening treatments may not be effective for discolourations associated with root canal treatment. For those unable to whiten their teeth with bleach, crowns and veneers offer an alternative solution.
- Failure to follow instructions accurately can cause teeth and gums to be damaged.
- Overwhitening can make the teeth more vulnerable to cavities and sensitivity.
- Further sensitivity can be caused by brushing your teeth after treatment, as this can be abrasive to the enamel of your teeth, aggravating the sensitivity.
- When the whitening solution touches the gums, it causes damage.
