Home whitening using an overlay

One of the whitening methods offered by DUDA CLINIC is an overnight whitening procedure using a customised overlay.

First, the dentist takes an impression of the patient’s teeth. Then, our technicians produce a special customised dental overlay which will be filled with a whitening gel and worn at home for several hours. Patients take the overlay home along with a sufficient amount of whitening gel placed in a ready-to-use syringe. The gel contains a whitening agent with an active ingredient concentration of either 10%, 15% or 20% depending on the sensitivity of the patient’s teeth. The gel can be applied during the day, but it is recommended for use during the night. The difference in tooth-colour is noticeable after 2 – 3 applications. The quantity of the whitening gel is sufficient for approximately two weeks of use. This is sufficient to provide satisfying results. During the whitening treatment, sometimes patients notice increased sensitivity in their teeth. In this case, a special desensitising gel can be applied to the teeth to minimize any discomfort prior to using the whitening treatment.
