Everyone wants whiter teeth and it's understandable, since your smile is the first thing people usually notice. If you are interested in whitening your teeth, we believe that you should know the options available to you.

There are three basic methods of whitening. Over the counter Treatment, Take home whitening trays and In-Office Systems.

1. Over the Counter Treatment
- Most economical

- Performed at home or anywhere

- Takes the longest time to achieve significant results

- Best when used as a supplement to in office bleach for maintenance


•Disposable trays that are coated with whitening gel are placed onto your teeth for approximately an hour. This procedure is repeated once a day for approximately ten days. 

•Whitening toothpaste can also be used for minor stains. Works best when stains are just starting to appear.

2. Take-Home Whitening Trays

- More expensive than over-the-counter, but more effective

- Results are longer lasting

- Performed at home

- In office fitting required

  • An office visit is scheduled to take impressions of your teeth. From these impressions, costume trays are made to fit the shape of your teeth. A kit with 4-8 syringes of bleaching gel is provided. Patient would load the fitted tray with bleach gel and apply to teeth for 30 minutes to four hours depending on the concentration of the gel. Typically gel concentration varies from 15% to 35%. Schedule of application is as needed. Patient and doctor will decide the frequency depending on severity of tooth stain.

3. In-office Systems
- Most noticeable results in the least amount of time (1 hour)

- More expensive than Take-home trays

- Results are longer lasting

- Most effective when combined with any of the above two treatments


•An office appointment is scheduled for approximately one hour. A very concentrated whitening gel is placed on teeth by doctor. Because of gel concentration, gums and lips are protected from bleach exposure. Some of the products require the use of laser or heat to activate the gel. Some products that do not require laser or heat activation are available as well. With almost all in office systems, immediate results are generally not final; teeth will look slightly less white several days later.
