Trusted and affordable dentistry
for the entire family.

Everyone notices a whiter, brighter smile.  And you feel more confident too! That’s why we offer our Take Home Teeth Whitening Treatment.  

Teeth can be stained by many different foods and beverages such as:

  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Dark sodas
  • Blueberries and other dark fruits
  • Dark colored sauces
  • Sports Drinks


At Brentwood Family Dentistry, we have developed a personalized tooth whitening procedure based on an individualized approach.  We fit you with customized whitening trays that are shaped to your teeth and gums exactly. You fill the trays with our hydrogen peroxide solution, which is tailored to the color of your teeth now and how much whiter you desire them to be.  The peroxide penetrates your enamel to get to the discolored molecules, bleaching them whiter to reveal a luminous smile.


This depends on the severity of your stains and your genetic make-up.  Generally, the longer you keep the solution on your teeth and the higher the peroxide percentage, the whiter they become.  Some of our patients keep the trays in for a few hours per day, and some of them keep them in overnight. Most patients see results in a few days to a few weeks.  The higher the peroxide percentage, the shorter time period you should keep them in. Many people have sensitive gums and need less peroxide, that is why it is not a “one gel fits all” system.


There are many at-home whitening products on the market today, including whitening toothpastes, strips or gels, and generic mouth guard-like trays.  The toothpastes and strips can be less expensive however, they usually do not have the percentage of peroxide needed to whiten your teeth effectively.  The generic mouth guard-like trays do not hold the bleaching agents in place as well as our custom trays do, and are not tailored to your teeth and gums’ sensitivity.


Dr. Rhea and Dr. Doherty will supervise your entire teeth whitening treatment process to make sure you are happy with the results.  Our whitening systems are safe and cost-effective. We have extensive experience in whitening and will treat you individually, according to your own unique situation.  There is not one gel that is best for everyone. Please talk with us before you try any type of whitening. We will respect your time, work within your budget, and let you make the final decision.  Your comfort and safety are our primary concern. We will make your teeth healthy, natural looking and beautiful again!
