The Process

The whitening process is simple and painless. During your appointment, our dental assistant will place a barrier around your teeth to protect your gums from the high-strength whitening.

Hale Family Dentistry uses 40% hydrogen peroxide The whitening is painted on your teeth and left for about 20 minutes. You can have up to three applications of 20 minutes depending on your smile goals.

Ideally, we would like your teeth to nice and clean prior to your whitening appointment. If you haven’t had a dental cleaning in awhile, we will recommend a cleaning prior to bleaching.

In addition, Dr. Hale would also like to have a mouth free of decay, meaning no outstanding treatment needed. Dental whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure. We want to ensure good oral health or the teeth, gums, and mouth prior to doing whitening treatment.

Home Whitening Solutions

We have both custom made trays and pre-filled trays whitening kits. The custom made trays are clear plastic trays made by taking an impression of your teeth. With the custom-made trays the retainer like trays hug your unique tooth structure to ensure complete whitening coverage.

Custom Trays for Teeth Whitening

Take home whitening trays are great because they last for many years. Once or twice a year you can just purchase refill syringes. They are also more eco-friendly compared to the pre-filled trays we offer which are disposable.

Disposable Trays for Whitening

Our patients really enjoy the disposable, pre-filled trays. Unlike any other whitening products on the market, they are pre-filled trays that comes with tray to input the tray in your mouth. They don’t slip around or leak bleaching gel outside of the tray like some of their competitors.

Depending on your goals, wearing the trays for as little as 10 minutes each day for 7-10 days can create great results! These come in 10% and 15% strength and mint or melon flavors.
