There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor.
Types of Teeth Whiteners
Over the counter
There are various over-the-counter products to whiten your teeth. Choose one that is approved by the ADA and follow the directions on its package.
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure, your dentist will tell you whether any tooth whitening is a safe and effective option for your smile.
- 3D Professional Crest Whitening Strips containing 35% hydrogen peroxide are only dispensed by your dentist. It is a 14-day treatment and has high efficacy than the store-bought strips. Our office is happy to dispense this product if you are interested.
- Dentist-dispensed home-care kits come in graduated concentrations of 10%-40%. One would start with the low concentration and increase to higher concentration as tolerated. You are likely to be more satisfied with the results of a dentist-dispensed home-care kit than any of the store-bought products.

Whiten Your Smile Today!
Safely, Quickly, Effectively—and keep it white!
Our practice offers a couple of options for teeth whitening.
In-office one-hour whitening:
Boost by Opalescence is the product that is used in our office for instant whitening. The active ingredient is a form of peroxide. The product also contains unique ingredients designed to decrease sensitivity and make your whitening experience as comfortable as possible. The results usually last several years (shorter if you smoke, drink coffee/red wine) and if your teeth start to discolor over time you can simply repeat the treatment or continue with home care kit whitening treatment.
Take-home whitening kit:
Your dentist will make custom-made trays and dispense whitening kit for home treatment. The kit will have syringes of whitening gel and the active ingredient is carbamide peroxide, which has been used safely to brighten the smiles of millions of people.
