Teeth Whitening

Your smile can make or break a first impression. If you smile confidently because you know your teeth look great, people notice you in the best possible way. But if you feel self-conscious about stained, discolored, or yellow teeth, you may not feel much like smiling, and people can perceive you as being unfriendly, unhappy, or both.

Dr. Rae Van Natta offers professional teeth whitening that will boost the brightness of your smile and help you make great first impressions wherever you go. At Gentle Hands Dental Care, we offer customized take-home whitening kits for our Hamilton, NJ patients who are ready to elevate their smile to the next level. 

Customized Teeth Whitening

When you’re ready to whiten your teeth, the first step is a visit to Gentle Hands Dental Care, where we will take impressions of your teeth. A custom dental lab uses your impressions to customize whitening trays that slip snugly over your teeth. 

When your whitening trays come back from the lab, you’ll return to our Hamilton, NJ dental office to pick them up, along with prescription-strength a whitening gel and easy instructions for using them.

Place the teeth whitening gel in the upper and lower trays and wear them for 20 to 30 minutes a day. It only takes about two weeks of daily use to see brilliant results and whiten your teeth by as many as six shades. 

Customized Whitening vs. OTC Kits

Have you been tempted to do your own whitening at home with a store-bought kit? The results you see, if any, may not give you the white smile you were hoping for, and you can spend a lot of money and still not see results. 

Our prescription-strength whiteners, on the other hand, are more potent than anything you can purchase over the counter. If you have experienced tooth sensitivity in the past, Dr. Van Natta will adjust the concentration of whitening gel so you can get the white smile you want without any discomfort. 

Unlike the kits you buy at your drug store that include generic whitening trays, we use impressions of your teeth to create customized trays that fit snugly over your teeth. A close fit provides more consistent whitening of all your teeth and keeps the gel on your teeth and away from your sensitive gum tissue.

And having your teeth whitened professionally means you have the benefit of someone to turn to if you have any questions.
