At-Home Whitening (Bleaching)
Whitening or bleaching your teeth is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to make a significant improvement in your appearance.
At General Dentistry of Las Colinas, we make a custom fit tray from a mold of your teeth. The tray holds the bleaching solution in contact with your teeth. Usually, you wear the trays and solution for an hour a day, for about 4 weeks. If you are in a hurry, we can whiten your teeth faster using our power bleaching solution in the office. When choosing power bleaching, we also provide the trays for touching up bleaching as time and dark foods and drinks will restain your teeth.
