About Home Tooth Whitening
For patients who prefer a more conservative price point than in-office teeth whitening, Martin Dentistry in Indianapolis, Indiana, also offer home teeth whitening. Unlike over-the-counter bleaching systems, professional home teeth-whitening systems are prescription strength. Cosmetic and general dentists, Dr. Matthew Martin, Dr. Stephanie Martin, and Dr. Lynn Marshall will fabricate custom mouth trays that hold the bleaching gel against the patient's teeth for optimal stain reduction. Most patients wear home whitening trays for an hour or two each night over the course of two weeks. For future touch-ups, patients can also get more of the whitening treatment at our Indiana office at a much lower cost, since they will not have to buy new mouth trays.

What to Expect
After consulting with the dentist, the patient will get a recommendation for an appropriate concentration of tooth whitener. The dentist will take impressions of the patient's top and bottom teeth to help create their custom mouth trays. For 30 minutes each day, the patient will wear prescription strength bleaching gel in their custom-fitted tooth tray, which covers all of the teeth and protects the gums at the same time. With this type of treatment each tooth gets whitening gel which creates brighter, whiter teeth all over for a more natural result. Many people see results in as few as 10 days.
While no teeth whitening option is permanent, results can last several years. With in-home treatments, patients can expect results to last a couple of years. Whitening is extended through proper care such as regular brushing with recommended toothpastes, flossing, and appropriate mouthwashes. Regular check-ups should be part of this routine, since regular professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar. In addition, patients should limit foods and drinks like berries, tea, coffee, and soda that stain teeth.
