Take-Home Whitening Gels allow you to whiten your teeth at your convenience—in a safe, effective, and customized way.

Professional  prescription-strength Whitening Gels are only available from your dentist, who will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. The sticky, viscous gel won’t migrate to gums, and most formulations include Potassium Fluoride (PF), which helps to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.

Powerful, prescription-strength Take-Home Whitening Gels are available with 10%, 10%PF, 15%PF, 20%PF, and 35%PF carbamide peroxide. Take-Home Whitening Gels can provide results after just one night, though expect to see results in about a week.


Take-Home Whitening Gels are delivered via customized bleaching tray. Dr. Charneco will create this tray from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of why the Take-Home Whitening Gels are so effective.
