At-home Whitening

At our office we offer an at-home whitening system. This allows the patients to be in full control of how white they want their smile to become. The process can take from one to two weeks depending on how white you want your teeth to become.


Procedure:

  1. An impression of your teeth is taken at our office

  2. After a few hours you can pick up the whitening gel and custom made trays that will fit on your teeth

  3. The gel is placed on the trays and worn as prescribed by the doctor

  4. Whitening agent is self activated once the trays are put on

  5. Teeth and gums are rinsed once the tray is removed
