 Boutique Home Whitening Kits  

Patients can whiten their teeth at home using Boutique. The process is simple and will suit all patients who want whiter, brighter teeth in as little as 2-3 weeks. The method uses custom made trays which are designed to hold the gel on each individual tooth. 
 
Each whitening kits comes with the custom made trays and 4 X 3ML syringes. Additional top up syringes can be purchased individually through your dentist. 
 
The 2 steps to whiter, brighter teeth 
 
Step 1 – your dentist will take impressions for the custom made trays and find out the desired results you want to achieve. The impressions are then sent off to the lab for the custom trays to be made. 
 
Step 2 – we will then see you back at the practice usually two weeks later to try the trays and provide you with the whitening gel. Your dentist will give you specific instructions about how much gel you should use and how long each day you should wear the trays, beginning from 30 minutes per day depending on the result you are looking to achieve. 
 
Why use Boutique Whitening to whiten your teeth? 
 
At Shepshed Dental Practice we use Boutique Whitening Gel, it contains a double action formula to reveal a beautiful, whiter, brighter smile. There are many key features that make Boutique Teeth Whitening the obvious choice for dentists and patients: 
 
 
~ Boutique uses the highest percentage formula available. 
 
~ In most cases, results are visible in less than a week. 
 
~ PH neutral gel protects tooth enamel. 
 
~ The whitening trays are custom made to fit you and you only for the best results. 
 
 
Remember to stay safe when using whitening products, only a qualified dental professional can legally use Boutique whitening. 
 
*** Whitening carried out by hairdressers, beauticians and unqualified individuals gives poor results and often results in disfiguring injuries ***
