How Long Does It Take To Whiten Your Teeth?

Are you considering teeth whitening but wondering how long it will take to see results? The answer depends on the type of whitening solution you choose.

Here's a breakdown of how long it takes to whiten teeth with commonly used products, and what you can expect in terms of quality of results.

1.    Whitening Toothpaste: Whitening toothpaste can take several weeks to show results, as it gradually removes surface stains from teeth. However, it's important to note that whitening toothpaste can't change the natural color of your teeth, so the results may not be as dramatic as with other whitening solutions.

2.    Whitening Strips: Whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes to an hour a day, for several weeks. The length of treatment can vary depending on the brand and the level of whitening desired. Whitening strips can produce noticeable results but may not whiten teeth as much as other solutions.

3.    Whitening Trays: All we need you to do is come in for a short appointment to Ivory Dental Studio to take impressions of your teeth to create personalized whitening trays for you to take home along with your whitening gel and written instructions on how to use them.

Take-home whitening works in the same way as in-office whitening and can even achieve just as effective results, just over a slower period. Because the concentration of peroxide is lower, you will need to wear your whitening trays each day for about 2 weeks to produce similar results.

4.    In-Office Whitening: A whitening treatment performed in-office by the Niagara Falls dentist is irreplaceable in terms of drastic whitening transformations. The concentration of peroxide is the highest you can have applied to your teeth safely.

This is the best way to lighten the teeth up to 10 shades in a single appointment – perfect for an upcoming wedding or formal photos. We apply the whitening agent directly to your teeth after protecting your gums with a protective gel. The whitening agent is activated with UV light.

Quality of results are just as important as speed, at Ivory Dental Studio in Niagara it's important to us to find a solution that is both effective and appropriate for your individual needs.
