At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Following our in-office whitening treatment with Zoom2, we recommend a Lumibrite take-home whitening kit for maintenance and to fulfill your maximum whitening potential. This kit may also be used as a stand-alone system, without in-office whitening first.
The kit consists of custom-made whitening trays, created from impressions taken in our office, plus whitening gel. There are three formulations of different strengths. The strongest gel requires only three minutes per day for two weeks. The weaker gels should be applied for one to two hours per day, also for two weeks.
Teeth whitening at home is not recommended for children under thirteen or so, because their teeth are still developing. It is also not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, to avoid chemical exposure of the child.
With a thorough oral examination and shade assessment, Dr. Dorfman can determine if you are a good candidate for in-office whitening or if a take-home whitening system would be more appropriate.
