Well we have 2 options. You can do an in office whitening and that is for really really stubborn dark teeth. You know, some of the ones that you just apply on from the drugstore they do okay but they only last for a couple of months. When you've got a really dark deep seeded stain you need a little more intense bleaching. It will bring that shade up oh 5, 6 shades in almost immediately. If we do a take home bleach, which I really believe is probably the better for most patients, they have a little tray, they put the bleaching material in, they wear it for an hour, 2 hours a day. Within a week or 2 their teeth get lighter and lighter and lighter. I think it's easier on their nerves of their teeth in general, I think they get time to process the teeth getting whiter as well.
You can do 1 arch or both, so you can whiten your upper teeth and you can notice the difference from the lower teeth or you can do them both at the same time and just get them nice and white. Usually it will work, there are some people who I don't care what we bleach we can't get them Chiclet white and we're not always going to get them Chiclet white but we are going to get them about 5 shades more. That you're not going to get from a bleach strip.

Learn the Benefits of Our Professional Whitening System vs. the OthersRead Transcript
I don't think those drug store options are necessarily all that bad. I think the materials that are used are very similar. What I noticed though is with time is that people want something a little bit better. The trays, we do the traditional tray bleaching that you probably have heard about. Most people have heard about. What's nice about those trays is they custom fit your teeth, it holds the material really close to the teeth and it holds there for a longer period of time. The material we use is just a little bit better, too, than you can get over the counter at the drug store. I tell people all the time if you want to try the over the counter stuff, go right ahead. It may be all you need, but if you want to take that next step and make something a little bit better, fits a little bit better and works a little bit more, then that's where we would do that for you.
S&G Family Dentistry’s whitening system has many benefits you will not get from an over-the-counter whitening kit. Here are a few of them:
- Faster results. Our professional-grade whitening solution is specially formulated to give you a whiter smile faster, without waiting weeks for results.
- Better results. You’ll get a white smile you cannot get with store-bought whiteners. The whitening agent in over-the-counter kits is less potent, making them less effective in whitening your teeth.
- Custom solutions. You can whiten your teeth in our office or at home. For your convenience, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and craft custom-fit trays for you to take with you and use whenever suits you best. Our trays fit perfectly on your teeth, keeping the whitening gel where it needs to be and away from your sensitive gums.
- Professional guidance. Our trained staff will show you exactly how to use your custom trays to get the results you want. We’ll answer any questions you have as well as monitor your whitening progress. We’ll make sure you get the radiant smile of your dreams.
