Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would prefer a more gradual and flexible approach to your whitening improvements, a custom take-home kit might be the better choice. These services consist of custom bleach trays that have been personalized for your unique mouth, as well as professional strength whitening gel. The patient’s job is to wear both components together for a certain amount of time each day. Within a few weeks of consistent use, patients should see noticeably brighter results. Our team offers both KoR take-home whitening kits and Philips Day White, which only has to be used for a span of 15 minutes two times a day.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Do you have a big event coming up, like a wedding or a graduation ceremony? Is speed your biggest priority for your cosmetic improvements? Then in-office teeth whitening with KoR could be the best choice for you. This procedure is performed over the course of one to three appointments, depending on the severity of tooth discoloration, here in Chevy Chase, with Dr. Freyne applying high-grade whitening gel to the surface of the teeth. Patients should see immediate results, with their smile being lightened multiple shades by the time they leave our practice.
