Whitening Teeth – It’s Easier Than You Think!

Return Your Smile to its Better, Brighter Days!

Love Your WHITE Smile!

It’s easy for your teeth to begin to discolor. Coffee, red wine and even carbonated beverages can dull and darken the enamel in your teeth.  Some people are born with darkened enamel, but much of the change in color comes from the natural, aging process.  Dark and discolored teeth are considered less attractive and may affect your self-esteem and confidence. Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching can take years off of your smile!

Hello! This is your gums with a message for you.

Large molecules breaking down into smaller.

Large molecules breaking down into smaller.

Tooth color is a result of light reflectance from large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of your teeth.  The larger these molecules become, the stronger the reflectance of color from the teeth.  Whitening gels work to break down these molecules into smaller molecules which become colorless or white.  The effectiveness of teeth whitening systems is dependent on exposing the tooth structure to a fully potent gel with extended time to allow it to diffuse into the microstructure of the tooth.

We have been whitening teeth with custom tray tooth bleaching, in-office “Power tooth bleaching,” and prefilled disposable tooth whitening trays for over 15 years.  Custom tray tooth bleaching continues to be the easiest and most effective method and very reasonably priced at #300.00  It is worth noting that 15 years ago the price  for tooth whitening or tooth bleaching was still $300.00 in our office and the procedure is now easier, and the products used are more effrective!  There are not too many things that you can say that about!

Please call our Grand Junction, Colorado office at (970) 242-3635 if you have any questions about tooth bleaching or tooth whitening!  This is one dental procedure that is actually FUN!

Yours for better dental health,
