    Congrats to you!! I read online that it's not really that important which type of whitening proceedure you get, but the most important factor is the ability and competence of the dentist doing it. I think as long as you have a good dentist who does a great job whitening, it won't matter which system they use. Oh, and yes everything I have read says you can get your teeth whitened the day you get your braces off.

    Congratulations! :thumb:

    You can do the whitening, but I'd recommend you wait to see how your mouth feels. Often after the braces are removed, the gums are swell and are sore for a few days/weeks. Whitening during this time would not be good, as it causes sensitivity as well and you need the whole tooth are exposed.

    Good luck! :thumb:

    I would wait a couple of months to allow your teeth to fully remineralize and settle into its natural colour before going ahead with whitening. Take home whitening trays tend to have longer lasting results than in office procedures.
