What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
What types of whitening do we have?
At Grand Haven Smiles we have not one, not two, but THREE great options for patients like you who are interested in have a whiter smile. You can think of our options as "Good, Better, and Best."
1. "The Good Option"
Our basic whitening would be our professional strength whitening strips. They are similar to Crest Whitestrips in that they are a teeth whitening strip that you place over your teeth, however since they are dental professional strength they are going to give you a better result than anything you might find at a retail store.
What does it include?: 10 whitening strips (5 each for the top and bottom).
2. "The Better Option"
The next option would be the "better" option, which is our 'White Teeth For Life Program'. This option includes custom whitening trays that we make for you here at the office along with 8 tubes of whitening gel that you would use at home. The awesome thing about this program, and why we call it 'White Teeth For Life,' is that when you sign up for this program and sign the contract, you will receive a free tube of whitening at each subsequent hygiene visit as long as the terms and conditions are met. This is a great way to keep your smile white and bright!
What does it include?: Custom whitening trays, 8 tubes of take home whitening + 1 FREE tube at each subsequent hygiene visit.
*Not ready to commit to White Teeth For Life? We offer the Take Home Whitening as a stand alone option as well.
3. "The Best Option"
Our final and BEST option is our in-office laser whitening. This is going to give you the best result and the brightest, whitest smile. It starts with a procedure in the office which can take an hour to an hour and a half. Then you will also receive custom whitening trays and the full 8 tubes of whitening gel so you can continue your whitening process at home. We like to call this a jump-start to your whiter smile.
What does it include?: Initial laser whitening procedure along with 8 tubes of whitening gel & take home trays.
