Essix

Impressions made in the office are used to create custom plastic trays. This custom tray hugs your teeth tightly and is an exact replica of your teeth.

Available in two different concentrations: 16 and 22 percent. The higher the concentration, the faster whitening occurs. Higher concentrations also commonly result in increased transient (non-permanent) sensitivity. Attention needs to made to limit whitening gel from pressing out the bottom of the tray and contacting gum tissue.

Advantages

  • Bleaching trays are available within days of impressions.
  • Less expensive.
  • Gets the job done.
  • I like how the office seems to use the latest dental technology and methods for cleaning. Every six months when I go in for my cleaning it seems there is a new cleaning tool used or technology for taking x-rays, etc. It makes you feel comfortable and confident as a patient that your dentist is keeping with that latest trends and technologies of the dentistry industry.
