Natural Elegance Whitening Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take?
The whitening trays are worn once day for 30-45 minutes for a total of 7 days
How white will my teeth get?
Peroxide based whitening will lighten teeth to the shade they were when they were newly erupted. It penetrates the outer layers of enamel to remove embedded stains from coffee, teas, artificial colors, smoking etc.
Will my teeth be sensitive?
Most patients tolerate the take home whitening much better than an in office “power” procedure. Some transient sensitivity may occur. Some patients choose to spread their whitening over 14 days by whitening every other day if they feel sensitive. In every case however, the sensitivity goes away after the bleaching is completed.
Is this any different than what I buy at the drugstore?
Over the counter products are usually around 6.5% peroxide while the professional natural elegance is a 25% peroxide based gel in preloaded trays that are much easier to apply than strips or pens.
Any special instructions?
We recommend that during the whitening period you avoid foods and drinks that would have a tendency to stain the teeth. We call it a “white diet”. That means avoiding things that have a lot of natural or artificial color in them.
Can anyone use this?
It is not recommended for children under 12, people with antibiotic stains and is not approved for individuals who are pregnant.
How much does it cost?
The natural elegance 7 days take home kit is available in our office for $99.00. Insurance companies do not cover this cost.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
