If you’re interested in a whiter, brighter smile, take-home teeth whitening kits from Dr. Picot at SouthEnd Dentistry will boost your confidence and spruce up your pearly whites. We use high-quality, professional-grade Opalescence teeth whitening products, which are custom-made for your teeth for superior results. Here are a few answers to common questions that patients ask us about the at-home teeth whitening experience:
Can’t I Just Whiten My Teeth With Over-The-Counter Products?
Sure! As long as you use ADA-approved whitening products, like Crest Whitestrips, there’s nothing wrong with whitening your teeth at home with over-the-counter products.
However, there are a lot of advantages to using professional-grade products for your whitening needs. If you use over-the-counter products, you won’t get the same results as you would from our custom whitening kits. Over-the-counter products are “one-size-fits-all.” In contrast, professional-grade kits like Opalescence are made specifically for your mouth. This means that every tooth will be whitening and that your gums won’t be damaged by the whitening agents.
How Do Opalescence Take-Home Kits Work?
First, you’ll come into our office for your consultation, and Dr. Picot will take impressions of your teeth. Then, these will be used to create special whitening trays that match every curve of your smile and whiten your teeth evenly.
Next, Dr. Picot will give you several tubes of Opalescence whitening gel, which you will apply to the trays, and wear according to his instructions. Depending on the strength of your whitening gel and your desired results, you’ll typically see results within 1-2 weeks of beginning treatment.

What Are The Benefits Of Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening?
Compared to both over-the-counter teeth whitening products and in-office treatments, Opalescence take-home kits have a number of benefits.
- Identical results as in-office whitening – You’ll get professional-grade, consistent whitening results with Opalescence take-home kits.
- More subtle, gradual whitening – If you do not want others to know that you are whitening your teeth, our take-home kits provide more gradual and subtle results, compared to in-office whitening treatments.
- Safe and effective – Dr. Picot will oversee the entire whitening process to ensure that you do not over-whiten your teeth or risk issues like tooth sensitivity.
- Treat yourself on your own schedule – There’s no need to sit around in the dentist’s office. Just get your kit after a quick consultation, follow Dr. Picot’s instructions, and treat yourself whenever it’s convenient for you!
