Achieve a Brighter Smile

At KR Dental, we believe everyone should have a smile they’re proud of. If you feel unconfident when laughing or smiling and dream of a whiter, more beautiful smile, then our friendly team can help. Our professional at-home whitening kits can make an enormous difference to a dull and lifeless smile, plus you can achieve your desired results in the comfort of your very own home.

Why Professional Whitening?

Our take-home whitening systems utilise professional-grade gels that aren’t available for purchase over the counter. The concentrated solutions provide stronger, faster results that are safer for your smile. Easily boost your smile by 6-8 shades in just two weeks, where commercial products take much longer and don’t whiten your smile as brightly. Plus there’s no need to keep purchasing new kits whenever you need to top off your results. Keep a syringe of gel on hand to re-apply it 1-2 days every six weeks to keep your teeth looking their best all year long.

Many over-the-counter products use harsh abrasives that – if used too frequently – can be harmful to your enamel.

At-home Whitening Kits

We only use the safest and most trusted brands in any of our treatments, which is why we utilise the pola whitening system for our at-home whitening kits. Patients have had highly successful results using this treatment over the years, which is one of the reasons why professional dentists love using it so much.

Wear your whitening kit once a day for two weeks to achieve full results. Each at-home whitening kit comes with enough gel to top off for up to six months following your initial two-week whitening routine. Whenever you run out, just stop by to purchase a refill.

Your whitening treatment begins with an initial consultation at our practice, where our dentist will take an impression of your teeth from which your custom-made whitening trays are created. These trays are then filled with the whitening gel and are to be worn for short periods of time each day. When our dentist hands you your at-home teeth whitening kit, it contains everything you need for a whiter and brighter smile, along with instructions.

If you have especially sensitive teeth, you may want to modify your whitening routine. Whitening gel tends to bring out sensitivity, so using a specially formulated toothpaste for sensitive teeth is highly recommended.

Whitening is only recommended for adults with healthy teeth and gums. Active decay or gum infections will need to be addressed first. Additionally, we recommend avoiding whitening agents while pregnant or breastfeeding.

What type of ingredients are inside of professional whitening gel?

Our home whitening gels contain 18% carbamide peroxide. Most over-the-counter products are restricted to 2%, making them less effective against tooth stain.
What's included in my home whitening kit?

Your take-home kit will include your moulds, whitening trays, bleaching gel and a tube of sensitivity toothpaste.
Will whitening gel work on my fillings, crowns, etc.?

No. Porcelain and composite restorations will retain their natural color and do not respond to bleaching gels. However, surface stains can be polished away during your routine scale and clean. If you prefer your dental work to be brighter, it will need to be changed out to match your surrounding enamel.
