Take home trays: Personally, i like the take home trays which are custom made for your teeth. You only have to use them for 30 minutes 2/day for 5-7 days. After you are completed every six month you can touch up your teeth for only 2 days to restore the color.

Custom trays: There are many whitening options. You will want to consider: how fast, how white and how evenly whitened you want your teeth as well as how much sensitivity you can handle, and how much you want to spend. The professional custom trays that you take home are my personal favorite, but talk to your dentist and find yours :).

Depends: Your whitening regimen should be monitored by a professional...Hygienist or dentist. The most effective treatment can be customized by the dentist getting a pre bleaching shade and deciding what shade you wish to end up with and how long it will take. There are several types of peroxides at various strengths applied by different methods. Call your dentist.

Long term Veneers: If you don't want to continue to bleach or whiten, ask your dentist about prep-less or minimally invasive veneers, they can be thin and made out of feldspathic porcelain or lithium disilicate ceramics, or even lumineers... Veneers normally retain their value/ color. There are no-prep veneers, which mean you don't have your tooth cut down at all, so it is not "aggressive" at all.

Professional care: Many dentists provide bleaching (or whitening) treatment. This can consist of home bleaching (using a custom tray and prescription bleaching solution), in-office bleaching treatment or a combination of both.

Whitening teeth: Most effective treatment is to see a dentist, have your teeth cleaned and then have the dentist take impressions of your teeth to custom make trays that will hold the whitening solution against your teeth. Avoid coffee, teas, colas, blueberries, smoking etc .

Teeth whitening: The most effective procedure is a professional teeth whitening without laser in the dental office for one hour, followed by home whitening system with custom trays for the long term effect. You will be very happy and amazed with the results.
