Nite White® is a fast, safe and effective tooth whitening system.
The whitening gel is a thick solution, which is dispensed to patients by a dentist and applied by the patient at home using a clear and inconspicuous custom fitted tray.
The delicious Peppermint Cream flavored gel is worn overnight, while you sleep for ultimate performance and maximum convenience. In only 10-14 nights, you can achieve exceptional whitening results.
The active ingredient in Nite White®, carbamide peroxide, has been recognized by FDA for many years as an oral antiseptic and is now used for its superior tooth whitening properties. Nite White® is available in a variety of carbamide peroxide concentrations to whiten even the most difficult stains.
If you prefer a daytime whitening alternative to traditional overnight systems, Day White® whitens teeth in only 30 minutes twice a day. If you have any questions about your whitening options, please consult your dental professional.
Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the color of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda). Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tooth Whitening
What is tooth whitening?
It’s a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of enamel and dentin. The system uses a mild solution retained in a custom-fitted tray that is worn over your teeth.
What causes tooth discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, colas, tobacco), trauma, nerve degeneration and old restorations. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from tooth whitening?
Almost anyone. However, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. A dentist may determine viable candidates for the process through a thorough oral examination and diagnosis. Nite White® is ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth and would like to have a whiter, brighter smile, day or night.
Is the process safe?
YES! Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide under the supervision of a dentist is safe for teeth and gums. In fact, many dentists consider this whitening process the safest cosmetic dental procedure available today.
How does it work?
The whitening gel is placed in a thin bleaching tray that fits over the teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel, carbamide peroxide, is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin and bleaches the colored substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth color is made lighter.
How long does it take?
Results are usually seen after the first application. Maximum results generally occur when the process is continued for 10-14 nights.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during the treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment. Patients using Nite White® EXCEL are less likely to get tooth sensitivity.
How long do the results last?
The teeth will always be lighter than they once were. However, some patients may need a tooth whitening “touchup” for 1-2 days, once or twice a year. In order to maintain the whitest tooth shade possible, it is best to avoid substances like coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco.
