Schedule a consultation today to see if you are a good fit for our teeth whitening services.

Our Teeth Whitening Procedure

After an initial consultation with one of our dentists, we will determine if you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening and schedule your treatment. The procedure starts with isolating your lips and gums with a protective gel. Next, we will combine two materials to activate the whitening agent before applying it to your teeth. You can receive as many as three 15-minute whitening gel applications, depending on your preferred shade. After the 15-minute session(s), your dentist will rinse the gel from your teeth and apply a fluoride treatment to help with sensitivity.

Can I Whiten My Teeth At Home?

For added convenience, you can professionally whiten your teeth at home. The same teeth whitening solution used at our RNX Dental office is available for at-home treatment. You will be given bleaching gel and trays to use at home. If done properly, you should see results in about a week. Before and after at-home treatments, you must brush and floss your teeth to remove food and leftover bleaching gel. In addition, patients should clean trays after each use to avoid any bacterial growth. At-home teeth whitening is a good option for patients concerned about sensitive teeth or who want to fit teeth whitening into their busy schedules.

DIY Kits vs Professional Teeth Whitening

With a variety of ways to whiten your teeth, it is important to consider your options. RNX Dental’s teeth whitening services combine in-office treatments with at-home maintenance to provide long-lasting results. 


While DIY teeth whitening is a more affordable option than professional treatments, these store-bought methods are only effective if used properly and consistently. Professional teeth whitening treatments provide quicker and longer lasting results, use more reliable and powerful ingredients, and include a personalized care plan from your dentist. Ultimately, many patients justify the additional expense of professional teeth whitening to guarantee their desired results.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

For lasting results, we always recommend combining RNX Dental’s in-office bleaching treatment with our take-home whitening trays. You can use the take-home trays for as long as they fit. Likewise, you can always visit our office to supply you with the gel. Take-home trays can be used as needed to maintain your perfect dental shade.

Tips for Keeping Your Teeth Bright & White:

  • Limit your intake of food/drinks that may stain your teeth, such as coffee and red wine 
  • Brush twice a day, every day
  • Floss your teeth
  • Use mouthwash
