How We Can Help Whiten Your Smile

Meet Regina

Like a lot of people, Regina wanted a whiter, brighter smile.  Regina has been a treatment assistant in the office of Dr. Julie Gillis for over 11 years.  She knows about the excellent products our office uses for tooth bleaching and she wanted to have a whiter smile.  Regina’s teeth and gums are healthy.  She is totally fine with the minor misalignment present. Take home custom tray bleaching with Nite White was used to create this sparkling smile.  You can see the comfortable custom trays used for this transformation.

In today’s world, it’s easy for your teeth to begin to discolor. Coffee, red wine, and even carbonated, sugary beverages dull and darken the enamel. Much of the color comes from the natural aging process. Our teeth get darker and our hair turns gray! Some people are even born with darkened enamel. Dark and discolored teeth are potentially embarrassing, and this can even affect self-esteem and confidence. Dr. Gillis and her highly trained staff help correct tooth discoloration in their Grand Junction, Colorado office today.

Take Home Custom-Fit Trays

The current state-of-the-art bleaching system that we use with most patients is custom tray whitening. Specialized trays are made from models of your teeth and they enable you to easily whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. We offer systems for bleaching during the day for as little time as 30 minutes per day for several days or nighttime bleaching.  We will help monitor your progress and answer any questions you may have along the way.

Take Home Disposable Trays

Disposable whitening trays combine moldable trays prefilled with teeth whitening gels that can be pressed to your teeth. This method offers lower cost and far superior results to over-the-counter white strips.  Dr. Gillis offers Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme if you want to begin teeth whitening treatments or keep your smile stunning between our in-office treatments. The trays are disposable and hard to notice making them ideal for whitening on-the-go. Dr. Gillis can recommend which of the two prescription strengths are right for you, and the trays can be worn from 15 – 60 minutes depending upon her instructions. You’ll notice results in about a week with this convenient teeth whitening solution.

In-Office Power Whitening

For clients who want immediate results, we offer an in-office power bleaching system. You will have a brighter, more vibrant smile to share with your friends after one visit.  Instant results are achieved by using Opalescence Boost. You’ll come in to the office, and the procedure will take about an hour because the treatment is chemically-activated instead of light-activated, which means you won’t have to waste time underneath an ultraviolet lamp. Opalescence Boost uses syringe to syringe mixing, ensuring the product used for you will be as fresh as can be. You’ll be able to see results after one appointment.

All Opalescence products contain potassium nitrate and fluoride which work to strengthen your enamel, decrease sensitivity, and help prevent cavities. They’re also more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening systems, so if you’re serious about whitening your teeth, contact our office today. Dr. Gillis provides dental care to patients from Grand Junction, Palisade, Orchard Mesa, Fruita, and other Colorado communities.
