Home Teeth Whitening Overview
Though there are several over-the-counter options for whitening your teeth at home, they do not always deliver what they promise and you can end up wasting your time and money. At Contemporary Dentistry, we provide professional-strength teeth whitening kits, using Ultradent and GLO Science products that can be administered at home. At-home teeth whitening kits from dentist Dr. Kathy Jacobsen are a safe and effective method to conveniently brighten your smile and erase stains. Dr. Jacobsen creates your home whitening kit to fit your needs and goals so you get your best results. Your kit will include custom mouth trays that will make the whitening process more comfortable. If you are interested in enhancing your smile with a professional home teeth whitening kit, contact our office in Gilbert, AZ to schedule a consultation.

"We recently moved to the area & I found Contemporary Dentistry via Yelp. I’m so glad I made the appointment!The staff and Dr. Jacobsen were so personable, thorough and caring. I expressed concern about the cold water that dentists shoot into your mouth while cleaning & how my teeth are really sensitive to the cold water. Well...they offered room temperature water! That’s a first and it totally changed the experience. I no longer dread the bi-annual cleanings!As a newbie to the Gilbert area, I highly recommend Dr. Jacobsen and her team. From the care to the reasonable prices, you’ll be relieved and grateful to make Contemporary Dentistry your own."- V.M. / Yelp / Sep 25, 2020
Best Candidates for Home Teeth Whitening
If you want to brighten your smile in the comfort and convenience of your own home, Dr. Jacobsen may recommend a customized teeth whitening kit. You may notice your teeth look dull or have yellow and dark stains that have accumulated over time. You may have tried over-the-counter whitening products, but found them ineffective, uncomfortable, or damaging to your teeth. Since the strength of the whitening solution is customized to your needs and goals, it is a great option if you have sensitive teeth. A home teeth whitening kit may be used alone or after an in-office whitening treatment to maintain your results.
What to Expect from Home Teeth Whitening
Prior to receiving your at-home whitening trays, Dr. Jacobsen will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and oral health to assess if this is the right treatment for you. For the at-home teeth whitening trays, patients can choose to receive impressions to create a custom fit, but this will prolong the process of receiving the trays. Standard trays can be given immediately, and will still fit better than over-the-counter products but will not be custom. The at-home whitening kit will be administered by Dr. Jacobsen and will include teeth bleaching gel and the trays. Dr. Jacobsen will also go over the specific instructions required for each treatment, including the amount of time the treatment should remain on the teeth.
Follow-Up for Home Teeth Whitening
The results for each patient will be dependent on the strength of the whitening solution and the patient’s initial enamel color. Once patients achieve their desired shade, they can stop using the at-home kit. Patients should also continue to maintain a good oral hygiene routine and make lifestyle changes to maintain their results. Additionally, they should attend regular dental cleanings and examinations as suggested by Dr. Jacobsen.
Insurance Coverage for Home Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, which typically means it is not covered by dental insurance. However, our financial team will contact your insurance agency to check for any coverage available for the treatment. We also offer financial planning and monthly memberships through our Smiles Club program to make treatment more affordable.
