Teeth Whitening

We currently offer an at-home, tray-based tooth bleaching system, where we provide a mouth guard-like tray and a peroxide-based bleaching gel solution where you can whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home.  With this method, the gel is applied to the trays and placed over your teeth for one to several hours a day and for up to four weeks.  

Teeth are often whitened by a number of shades, and this method is typically more effective than store-bought tooth whitening strips/gels.  A tray-based whitening system is also typically more effective than whitening toothpastes, which usually only brighten teeth by  about one shade. While some whitening toothpastes contain peroxides, they aren't in contact with the teeth long enough to provide an effective whitening solution.
