Teeth whitening, sometimes known as “bleaching”, is a common dental procedure. According to the FDA, “whitening” restores natural tooth color and “bleaching” whitens beyond the natural color. There are many different ways to do this.
Our teeth whitening system is cosmetic and works best for people who have had whiter teeth in the past and have noticed throughout time and staining habits that their teeth are not as bright as they once were. These staining habits include but are not limited to: smoking, drinking coffee, tea, red wine, soda, dark fruit juice, or just about anything that could stain a white tee shirt.
The products that we sell are manufactured in the USA and held to the highest standards of FDA manufacturing compliance.
What's in the pre-filled trays?
Hydrogen peroxide is a cleaning agent created by combining hydrogen and oxygen (H2O2). Although often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, it is also used for teeth whitening. Hydrogen peroxide is extremely effective for whitening teeth. However, hydrogen peroxide is also very powerful. It can create tooth sensitivity and even irritate the mouth and gums. Because of this, only trained dentists should administer higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide.
Carbamide peroxide is a combination of hydrogen peroxide and urea. As a result, it has a weaker concentration of hydrogen peroxide (1/3 of the strength). Although not as effective as high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, it is still a very effective and fast teeth whitening agent. Because it is not as concentrated, it is safer to handle and can be used by anyone, not just dentists.
We use both higher and lower concentrations of carbamide and hydrogen peroxide throughout our product line.

A good guideline: if it stains a white shirt, it will stain your teeth.
For a minimum of 24 hours after the process, avoid consuming coffee, tea, dark colored soda, red wine, berries, candy, red sauces, beets, chocolate or any other foods that have a propensity to stain your teeth.
Of course, brush and floss as directed by your dentist.
