The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. San Jose dentist Dr. Ahmad then applies some whitening agent and then is exposed to a strong light that speeds up the whitening process. This procedure can make your teeth white up to 11 shades lighter. The difference of this treatment than other procedures is that it could take up to two weeks whereas the laser teeth whitening procedure can only take around 30 minutes to an hour.

How To Get Whiter Teeth at Home
The tray method involves having impressions taken from which the dental laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity.
The tray method is recommended by Dr. Ahmad in whitening badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement and see your white teeth. For maintenance of whiteness the trays should be used every several months.
The end results whether using trays at home or doing Laser Teeth Whitening procedure is the same. The cost of the tray method is about half compared to the Laser Teeth Whitening and there is usually less post-treatment sensitivity.
