You have many over-the-counter choices for teeth whitening in your home; however, they don't always do what they claim and you could wind up wasting your money and time. At the private practice of Dr. Troy Gombert, we supply professional teeth whitening by Lumibrite and Opalescence that can be performed in your home. Home kits for teeth whitening by fellowship-trained cosmetic dentist Dr. Gombert are secure and efficient systems to conveniently whiten your teeth and eliminate stains. Dr. Gombert builds your kit to satisfy your requirements and goals so that you can get your best results. Take-home teeth whitening kits use a whitening tray custom made for your mouth, accompanied by prescription-strength (32% carbamide peroxide) whitening gel available only from a dentist. The trays are thin, soft, flexible, and are made specifically for your teeth. They hold the prescription-strength whitening gel against the tooth while keeping it away from the gum tissue. If you're considering improving your smile with a custom teeth whitening kit, then get in touch with our office in Chandler, AZ to schedule an appointment.

When you would like to improve your teeth in the convenience and comfort of your house, Dr. Gombert can suggest a personalized home whitening. Your smile can seem dull or have dark and yellow stains that have built up over your lifetime. You might have attempted store-bought whitening products, but found them uncomfortable, ineffective, or harmful to your teeth. At our practice, the potency of the Lumibrite or Opalescence whitening treatment chosen will be customized to suit your personal wants and needs, therefore it's an excellent alternative if you have sensitive teeth. Home teeth whitening might be used by itself or following a professional whitening procedure to enhance your results.
What to Expect
Your Lumibrite or Opalescence home teeth whitening kit will be created by Dr. Gombert with a whitening product and mouth trays. Dr. Gombert will start with an examination. He needs to make sure there are no defective fillings, open cavities, or undue sensitivity in the teeth. After the examination, a member of our team will take impressions of your teeth to fabricate custom-fitted bleaching trays. These personalized dental trays make your treatment more effective as well as providing a closer, more comfortable fit than one-size-fits-all dental trays. As soon as your kit is prepared, a member of our team will discuss the instructions necessary for every treatment, such as how long and how frequently to use your treatment. Instructions should be followed very closely to receive optimal results.
Results will be dependent on the formula of the bleaching gel, your starting tooth color, and how frequently you apply your whitening kit. As soon as you attain your desired color, you can quit using your home treatments. For result maintenance, you need to keep an excellent oral hygiene regimen and implement lifestyle changes, such as not consuming staining foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Also, you ought to schedule twice yearly professional cleanings at our dental practice so stains will be polished, plus annual dental examinations so we can check on your general dental health. You should keep your trays clean and in a secure place, so in the event that you would like to resume your home treatment, you would just have to buy more bleaching gel.
Teeth whitening is an aesthetic treatment, so it's generally not covered by dental insurance. At your appointment, Dr. Gombert will discuss your price quotes based on your choices, go over payment methods we accept, and provide info on where to find medical financing.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Whitening is a safe, effective, and relatively simple means of producing a whiter smile. We offer several options for whitening your teeth.
In-office bleaching — A bleaching solution is applied to your teeth and is activated by heat and light. This in-office procedure typically lasts 30 minutes to one hour and significantly whitens teeth after only one visit. Although stubborn stains may require another visit, results generally last for years and can be maximized with regular dental hygiene.
At-home bleaching — During a visit to your dentist, you will be given a whitening gel and fitted with a custom-made whitening tray. Once you return home, you apply the gel to the tray and wear it for two to three hours per day for two or three weeks. Even with today's advanced whitening techniques, not everyone's teeth will whiten with the same results.
