The straightest, whitest teeth.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Gorczyca Orthodontics offers at home whitening with the Ultradents treswhite system either with or without braces. The Ultradent whitening system is a professional whitening that uses trays and whitening gel for 20 minutes a day until you reach the level of teeth whitening desired.
Paint-On Teeth Whiteners
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, and one type of readily accessible whitening product is commonly referred to as “paint-on” teeth whiteners. Paint-on whiteners can be purchased over-the-counter and generally are less expensive and less effective than whitening strips or professional options. Paint-on teeth whiteners consist of a gel that is applied to the tooth using a small brush. Paint-on whitening gel hardens into a film that coats the teeth, and dissolves in the mouth. As with any teeth whitening regimen, it is wise to consult with a dental professional before use.
Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash
Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are designed to have “whitening” capabilities, but work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. Unlike the materials used in Ultradent professional treswhitening system, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will mildly lighten your teeth.
