WHITENING FOR LIFE Program
With the year’s end come parties and events. And this is the season when everyone wants pearly whites for their holiday and new year extravaganzas. That’s where we can help. We offer a WHITENING FOR LIFE Program.
WHITENING FOR LIFE was created to make whitening teeth affordable and available to everyone. It’s a fantastic bonus program that encourages routine dental health visits, and gives us the opportunity to thank you by offering the whitening “on us” through the years.
Our whitening program costs a one-time fee of $50.00. After we take bleaching impressions, you will receive custom trays (upper & lower mouthpieces fitted to your teeth), and will use professional grade bleaching solution daily in the privacy of your own home. It will involve 30 minutes of your time every day for 2-3 weeks, depending on the shade you want to obtain. For those with sensitive teeth, the solution we have chosen is designed to minimize sensitivity!
Maintaining routine recare appointments are important to your health. They allow us to observe any changes in the oral tissues. By keeping these routine appointments, we will reward you with complimentary maintenance whitening gel yearly. This way, we can help you have a bright smile, while whitening safely and effectively on nice strong healthy teeth.
How does whitening work?
You will place a small amount of whitening gel in your custom trays in the corresponding areas of the teeth in your smile line. Over a period of 30 minutes per day, the gel will go to work and open the tiny pores and tubes of your teeth that have collected years of stain from your diet and habits (coffee, tea, wine) and whiten the teeth through “oxidation.”
You will notice results in the first few days, but it could take weeks depending on the color of your teeth and the results you want to achieve. Yellow teeth tend to whiten the easiest. However, if you have orange, brown, or grey hues to your teeth, you will get results, but may require a longer period of whitening. These situations will result in a “brightening” effect.
Is it safe?
Yes. If you follow our easy protocol, you will be able to whiten safely and effectively. You will schedule a short follow-up appointment, so we can check your new brighter shade and discuss a maintenance protocol.
This is a very fun and rewarding experience. People have made comments that they look younger and tend to smile more. They have more confidence. What a great way to welcome 2016, with a bright beautiful smile!
End of Year insurance benefits
Also don’t forget about your end of year insurance benefits! Unfortunately, if you don’t use it, you lose it! The eligible benefits will expire. With this come missed opportunities to maximize your benefit while taking care of necessary dental treatment. We would love to help explain any work needed while maximizing your insurance, and get you scheduled accordingly.
Our December schedule fills quickly, and some treatments take time, so please call today!
