One treatment only takes 30 minutes.
What results can I expect?
On average, 2-5 shades of whiter, brighter teeth.
Can teeth whitening damage my gums and tooth enamel?
No, it will not. Actually, carbamide peroxide has been found to have a healing effect on the gums. Many teeth whitening procedures use peroxide for whitening and it has been proven not to harm tooth enamel. For those sensitive to peroxide, we offer an alternative all-natural gel (ingredients listed below).

Are there any adverse effects?
A small percentage of clients experience gum and/or tooth sensitivity with the peroxide solution during a whitening procedure, however, it typically dissipates over the course 24-48 hours.
How long will the results last?
The initial results last the average consumer 6 months to a year. However, individual results will vary depending on genetics, dental make-up, age, and lifestyle habits such as, smoking, drinking tea, coffee, red wines or any other dark, acidic liquids.
Tip: Once you have whitened your teeth, it’s a good idea to use a take-home whitening gel pen to touch up your teeth to maintain the results.
How often can I whiten my teeth using this process?
An average interval between treatments is three months. However, you can whiten your teeth more often as long as your teeth and gums are healthy.
Will fillings and crowns be affected by the process?
Peroxide will not have a negative effect on the integrity of fillings and crowns. Although these materials will not whiten with any type of bleaching procedure, the Smile White Now peroxide will remove staining from composite materials.
