Teeth Whitening Treatments

There are many different Teeth Whitening treatment options, so if you wish to have a white brilliant smile, we have several whitening methods to offer you at Santa Cruz River Dental. Some of the choices are the traditional teeth whitening procedures that take a bit of time to show results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results from the first session of whitening. We also offer some technologically advanced treatments, which are safe and produce excellent results without damaging the teeth.

Teeth whitening treatments are always a great choice to produce a brighter smile. Below you will find the teeth whitening procedures we offer at Santa Cruz River Dental


Opalescence™ is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The safe, powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work, and usually takes only one dental visit to achieve desired results.

Take Home Trays

Take-home trays come as a kit that can be used in the comfort of your house. Our dentist will provide you with the instructions and all the guidelines you need to use it at home. Results are not instantaneous with this method but can see the changes after the first session. 

What makes this whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself.  

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

Custom whitening trays are clear and are used in conjunction with a small dollop of gel, that is inserted in each tray which gives them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth. 
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again, although It is not recommended to use them for at least another day after each application.
These whitening trays can be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on whether this treatment is right for you.
