About the Essix Whitening System
Essix is our advanced teeth whitening system that has proven to be a reliable and effective method for lightening the shade of your teeth. It utilizes custom trays that are designed specifically for your mouth, ensuring a secure fit.
Essix comes in two different concentrations: 16% and 22%. It’s important to note that while the higher concentration will yield faster results, it can also make your teeth more sensitive temporarily.
While Essix is entirely safe to use, you do want to make sure you limit how much whitening gel comes into contact with your gum tissue. Primarily, you’ll want to pay attention to reducing how much gel gets pressed out of the bottom of the tray and onto your gums.
