Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
There are tons of whitening products on the market, both online or at big-box stores. There are ‘paints’ and ‘pens’ all the way to very expensive ‘light’ or ‘laser’ teeth whitening systems. Many of these make promises that are unrealistic and even misleading. Plus, the majority of website-advertised materials are not tested for concentration or stability. They arrive from China and are drop-shipped from warehouses all over the country. There is no way to track how these materials got here from overseas and what conditions they had to survive. Whitening materials degrade under heat and moisture after just a few hours. Imagine what happens when they sit in a container ship under the beating sun for weeks?
The materials we use are made in the USA by a medical grade facility. They are shipped directly to our office for storage. They are randomly tested by the factory for quality and are tracked with proper batch and lot numbers. With everything going on, you have to trust what’s going in your mouth.

Science Behind Teeth Whitening
All methods of teeth whitening are very similar. A gel containing a form of peroxide breaks down to oxygen and water. The free oxygen generated attaches to stains and lifts them out of the teeth. The differences between techniques and overall results depend upon the aspects below.
- The concentration and stability of the Bleaching Gel; The main ingredient in whitening gel is peroxide which is inherently unstable to both temperature and light. One of the fastest ways to inactivate the gel is with heat. Did you know that the average temperature a package is exposed to while in transit with major shipping companies is 120 degrees? It’s no wonder that many over the counter products as well as professional gels may have inconsistent results. Our gel is manufactured to rigid standards and sent directly from the manufacturer packed in insulated cold packs. They are transferred immediately to cold storage in the office and remain there until they are packaged for you.
- The amount of time that the gel is in contact with the teeth; Our whitening trays are handcrafted and feature a gingival seal and gel reservoirs. This means that more gel stays in contact with your teeth for a longer amount of time. In addition, your saliva is kept out thereby preventing dilution of the gel.
- Whether the teeth enamel allows the gel into the stains; This is called permeability. The pressure of the gel against the teeth is increased because the trays seal so well against the teeth. Some manufacturers of over-the-counter products lower the pH of their gel (making it acidic) allowing the acidity to increase permeability. Our gel, on the other hand, is pH buffered. We enhance permeability by pretreating your teeth and using a neutral gel because we feel that it is safer.
