Enjoy a whiter smile in the convenience of your own home.
Professional Teeth Whitening is a fast and effective way to make your smile look years younger. We offer custom-fitted whitening trays so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home!
Whitening with custom trays is the system that has been most widely used over time. It is considered the gold standard! We make models of your teeth and fabricate a clear plastic tray that fits perfectly. You are given syringes of whitening gel which goes in your trays. Then you wear your trays with the gel in them for 30 minutes to an hour. The peroxide gel enters your teeth and, though the same process as other professional whitening systems, whitens your teeth from the inside-out.
One of the benefits of having these trays is that when you run out of gel, you only need to purchase more gel syringes, not a whole new system. So, it’s great for touch-ups (say after a month of heavy Starbucks).
Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening or bleaching?
Almost everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening or teeth bleaching! However, some dark teeth are much more resistant to whitening procedures. Teeth that are discolored with dark gray or reddish shades are the most resistant to whitening; an example of this type of dark shade appears in teeth affected by tetracycline. Still, even these dark teeth will whiten to some degree with long-term care. Depending on the results you desire, whitening may be an option for dark (gray/red) teeth. Otherwise, veneers or Lumineers are an excellent option that we can discuss with you during your dental appointment with us.
