What is At-home teeth whitening?

There are numerous over-the-counter choices for teeth whitening products; however, they do not always accomplish desired results and could lead to wasted time and money. At LANCO Dental Care, we offer Opalescence Go™ and Pola Day professional-strength teeth whitening solutions that can be easily used from the comfort of home. Our take-home teeth whitening kits are a simple and effective system to conveniently brighten dull or discolored enamel and eliminate surface stains. Each at-home teeth whitening treatment is customized to meet individual needs and goals so you can achieve your best possible result. If you are interested in improving your smile with a professional at-home teeth whitening solution, get in touch with our office in Lancaster, PA, to schedule a consultation.

  • Allows for gradual whitening, lessening the odds of sensitive teeth
  • Can get rid of stains and discoloration caused by tea, coffee, and tobacco
  • Personalized to your specific desires

Are teeth whitening kits right for you?

Should you wish to brighten your smile at home, our dental team may recommend teeth whitening custom trays. Many patients who opt for professional solutions have tried whitening products from the store but have found them uncomfortable, ineffective, or inconvenient. At our Lancaster, PA practice, the strength of the prescription whitening solution is customized to suit your needs and goals. Professional teeth whitening from home may be a good option if you have teeth that are dull, stained, or discolored from:

  • Tea, coffee, red wine, sodas, or fruit juices
  • Berries or tomato-based foods
  • Spices like curry or chili powder
  • Yellowing due to age
  • Tobacco use

How does at-home teeth whitening work?

We are pleased to offer two types of take-home whitening options, including Opalescence Go (preloaded disposable trays) and Pola Day (custom whitening trays with syringes of prescription-strength whitening solutions). During your consultation, we will talk with you about your cosmetic goals and determine if one of these options might help meet your needs. We will also conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and dental health in order to help you select the ideal whitening strength and formulation. Your at-home teeth whitening kit will be created by our skilled clinical team. If you choose Pola Day, impressions of your upper and lower teeth will be taken, and custom teeth whitening trays will be fabricated. Once your kit is ready, our team will talk you through the specific instructions required for your chosen treatment, such as how long and how frequently to apply your teeth whitening treatment.

What happens after at-home teeth whitening?

Overall results from at-home teeth whitening will depend on the strength of the solution, your starting enamel shade, and the consistency with which you use your whitening kit. When you achieve your desired level of brightness, you can stop using your at-home treatments. For result maintenance, we recommend that you keep a good oral hygiene routine and implement lifestyle changes, such as avoiding foods and drinks that may stain along with tobacco products. Scheduling routine dental cleanings at LANCO Dental Care can also provide an opportunity for surface stains to be polished away, helping to maintain a bright smile. It is best to keep your whitening trays clean and stored in a cool, dry place away from heat. You can always obtain additional whitening gel as needed to refresh your smile results over time.
