Should I Choose In-Office or Take-Home Whitening?

You can get excellent results with both in-chair and take-home whitening kits. They simply work in different ways.

Need to Whiten in a Hurry?

In-chair whitening is ideal if you have an upcoming big event such as a wedding or graduation. With this option, you can achieve a dramatically brighter smile in just one visit.

We offer the following types of in-chair whitening:

  • Opalescence Boost

    We’re proud to offer the new Opalescence Boost to patients in our practice; this fantastic in-chair option whitens teeth without the need for a light.

  • In-Chair Zoom! Whitening

    With this option, a specially formulated gel with active ingredients of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is applied to your teeth. Next, a light is directed onto this layer of gel, causing a reaction that dissolves stains and lightens your teeth.

Want to Whiten From the Convenience of Home?

If you have a full schedule that makes it difficult to come in for a whitening appointment, you may prefer purchasing a take-home kit and whitening your teeth in your free time. We’ll provide you with soft plastic trays that are custom-fitted to your teeth. Simply place the whitening gel in the tray and let it do the work while you relax.

Depending on which shade of white you wish to achieve, you may need to continue with treatment for about 10-14 days, with dramatic differences noticeable after just a few uses.
