Why should you have your teeth whitened?

A bright, beautiful smile will improve the way others perceive you, but more importantly, it will improve the way you perceive yourself. Teeth whitening means you no longer have to feel embarrassed when you speak or hide behind a closed-mouth-smile. Have your teeth whitened and face the world with a confident, happy, smile.

In-Office Procedures

At Vine Street Family Dental Care, we use the ZOOM Whitening & Bleaching system. Choosing the in-office procedure gives you the best and most lasting results. Our whitening expert, Judy, has over 25 years of experience.

The in-office ZOOM whitening procedure takes about an hour and a half and gives you immediate, and noticeable results at a competitive price.

During the visit, your mouth and gums will be protected with a rubber dam or protective gel. To prevent damage and problems with sensitivity, we can alternate between fluoride gel and bleaching gel. After the procedure is complete, we can make custom fit bleaching trays for an additional, minimal cost. Using the bleaching trays at home for about a week after your procedure will produce the best results and anytime you want a touch-up.

At-Home Options

If you are interested in at-home whitening options, Vine Street Family Dental Care has an excellent system for you. The at-home whitening options take longer, but still offer excellent results. We are committed to using the best products available to ensure our patients experience the best results and we offer a 50% discount to patients on our at-home whitening trays.

If you choose at-home whitening, we will take an impression of your teeth and make custom bleaching trays just for you. The trays can be picked up 2-3 days later. You’ll then take the trays home and wear them as instructed. Depending on the system you choose, you’ll wear the trays every day for a half an hour to two hours, usually in the evening. This process will take 3-6 weeks.

Both in-office, and at-home teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile. Contact Dr. Barton Gleave, DDS and our friendly team at Vine Street Family Dental Care to discuss your options and choose a whitening system that suits your sensitivity, lifestyle, and budget.
