We Offer the Best Products for Teeth Whitening at Home

We know you want your smile to shine. That’s why we offer products specially formulated for those DIYers who want to try teeth whitening at home.

Our take-home teeth whitening systems include:

  • Opalescence® custom whitening trays– Made right in our Woodbury office, we take a mold of your mouth and make trays that are custom to fit your teeth. Usually within two appointments, you will have trays ready to use. To use the trays, you load them with Opalescence® whitening gel, put the trays in and wear them overnight. The trays are very thin and smooth so you can sleep comfortably with them. Frequency of treatments depends on each individual, contact Dr. Ellie Mahmoodi or Dr. Amanda Elbert to see what will work best for you.
  • Opalescence Go®– Dispensed only by Serenity Dental Woodbury as a licensed dental professional, Opalescence Go® comes in pre-filled, disposable trays, so it’s easy to take with you anywhere you go. Opalescence Go® offers a whiter smile in just 5-10 days with wear times ranging from 15-60 minutes per day!
  • After care– To maintain your bright, white smile, use Opalescence® specially formulated whitening toothpastes. You’ll get enhanced stain-fighting power and a maximum dose of fluoride to keep your smile bright and healthy.

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Whitening Your Teeth at Home

How discolored are your teeth?

If your teeth are only moderately discolored, you may want to pick a mild teeth whitening kit at Serenity Dental to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful smile.  They also protect from future stain build-up, giving you a brighter, whiter smile that lasts

Do you have teeth sensitive to whitening?

Those with teeth sensitive to whitening may experience discomfort from some of the more powerful teeth whitening products that Serenity Dental offers. Therefore, you may want to consult with your cosmetic dentist at Serenity Dental for a recommendation on a less sensitive option.

Have you had a lot of dental work?

Even Serenity Dental’s best teeth whitening kits won’t work on dental work such as caps, crowns, veneers, partials, fillings, or laminates. As a result, it’s important to consider that you may experience noticeable color differences after whitening. This is because your regular teeth will become whiter, your dental work will not, leading to uneven coloring. If you have had significant dental work you should consult with Serenity Dental’s cosmetic dentist before starting one of our whitening programs.

How much time do you have to dedicate to teeth whitening?

Many of the best teeth whitening systems only require minutes a day, but others can take up to an hour a day. Evaluating the color of your teeth and your lifestyle can help you determine the best teeth whitening kit for you. Often, products that require longer application times offer more dramatic and lasting results.
