If Dentists charge $200 - $600, how can you charge so little?

Dentists pay a small amount for the bleaching kit. The Dentist's additional cost is for the fabrication of the custom tooth whitening tray, chair time, molds of your teeth, technician costs, etc. Our trays you customize at home. Otherwise except for the packaging you are getting the same tooth whitener your Dentist offers at his office.

How often do I use The teeth bleaching gel?

We recommend once  per day. 1-3 hours. You can adjust to fit your schedule, for instance longer on weekends than week days. Keep in mind the longer you use it the faster you will see results. In most cases it only takes 3 weeks to get your teeth their whitest!

Is bleaching my teeth safe?

According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD Impact, April 1998, p. 23), "Several studies, during the past five years, have proven bleaching to be safe and effective." A small percentage of people may experience reversible tooth sensitivity and gum irritation which disappears when use ends or by decreasing the amount of time you bleach your teeth each time or by increasing the amount of time between bleaching sessions.
