Essix Whitening System ~ $375.00

Trays are custom made in a dental lab in about 1 week. This advanced precision system increases gel effectiveness by preventing salvia dilution. Indentations in tray prevent gel from “leaking” out onto gums and causing gum irritation. Advanced bleaching solution minimizes tooth sensitivity.

One free bleach syringe is given indefinitely at every subsequent hygiene/cleaning appointment.


  • Custom tray allows extra space for the bleaching material and has a special design preventing bleaching gel from contacting the gum tissue.
  • The precision placement of whitening gel and the advanced gel solution itself helps to alleviate tooth sensitivity, reduce gum irritation, and bleach more efficiently.
  • This system comes with a desensitizing liquid that gets applied before you begin whitening and after each treatment. Free Bleaching for LIFE will keep teeth White for LIFE! assuming regular 6 month appointments are kept.

Promotion is void if more than 7 months pass between any two appointments.

  • I first came to see Dr. Kern to get my caps replaced from an accident when I was younger. Dr. Kern was very helpful in showing me all the ways in which we could replace and revitalize my smile, which was something I had been ashamed of for quite sometime. She was even patient with me when I went back and forth several times to see the difference between replacing two of the crowns or perhaps changing and having four crowns, to align my smile. I chose to move forward with four crowns. I explained to Dr. Kern that I was to be in several weddings in the near future. Dr. Kern made sure to create a timeline which ensured that all the dental work would be completed in time. At the first wedding the bride (my sister) commented on how white and beautiful my teeth were. She told me she had been whitening her teeth for about two months but they still weren’t as white as mine. At the second wedding two months later, several people commented on how white my teeth were, even though I drank red wine. My experience with Dr. Kern was amazing! She is very personal and always makes sure to say hello when I see her outside of the dentist office. I would recommend her to anyone!
