We also offer an option to just have customized trays with a take home bleach kit. We offer both in-office whitening and take home whitening. For in-office whitening procedures, we protect your gum tissue by placing a blockout material and then apply a whitening agent to your teeth. You will also go home with customized whitening trays with a bleach kit. Whitening in general can make your teeth sensitive. We use carbamide peroxide, which has a higher pH than the over the counter bleach, which uses hydrogen peroxide. This higher pH found in our carbamide peroxide leads to less sensitivity and also helps fight decay. We also include soothing relief gel, which contains potassium nitrate to help with the sensitivity.
