What is the procedure?

  • You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
  • We begin by taking molds of your teeth. Your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up in a couple of days.
  • A special whitening agent will be provided, you will put the agent into the clear trays. With only one to a few hours of wear per day, the whitening agent brightens your teeth without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way.
  • When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
