There is a difference between the teeth whitening kits you can get from the supermarket and the high-strength home whitening kits our office is able to provide. Store-bought do-it-yourself whitening kits feature a "boil-and-fit" mouthpiece that can be uncomfortable and generally requires more whitening gel per tooth to achieve whiter teeth. The gels in the store-bought whitening kits are also are not as concentrated as what we can offer which means it takes longer to achieve desired results. Gary Ackerman, DDS uses kits that are able to create an exact-fit whitening tray that is custom built for your teeth. This maximizes the displacement and effectiveness of the whitening gel ensuring that it surrounds the teeth evenly and entirely. Additionally, our home-whitening kits use a high-strength proprietary whitening gel that you can't get over-the-counter from a supermarket which means your teeth get a deeper and longer lasting result in less time.
