During the appointment, ClearChoice Orthodontic's doctors and staff perform a dental examination before making precise molds of clients' mouths to foster at-home whitening. The tray, which is ready for pickup within four to five days of the impression, is worn a few hours each night, snuggling up to patient’s fangs so the professional-strength Ultra Radiance bleach can blanch bicuspids and ivory-ize incisors. Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.
The technicians at Smiles On The Run keep teeth bright and healthy with safety-conscious whitening techniques. Eschewing bleaches, lasers, and bottles of Wite-Out, staff members instead use a peroxide-based gel and LED lights to achieve noticeable results. During treatment—which typically lasts no longer than 45 minutes per session—they even coat gums and lips in a protective layer of Vitamin E gel to prevent the whitening compound from bleaching the gums.
