Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Over time, coffee, tobacco, and the natural aging process tarnish your smile.Teeth Whitening is a cost-effective way to refresh and revitalize your youthful appearance. At O’Brien Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have several Whitening options available to you!

Ever since the "smile revolution" in the early 90’s whiteners have exploded onto the market. There has much debate over which teeth whitening method is the most effective. Dental professionals agree that dentist-supervised whitening is the most successful method of treatment.
Whitening options available:

  • In Office 1½ Hour Whitening – Last for 5 – 7 Years
  •  Take Home Whitening Trays – Whiten your teeth while you watch your favorite Sitcom
  •  Whitening Strips – Professional strength Crest Strips – These are 3x stronger then the over the counter strips.

Benefits of in-office whitening:

  • Convenient.  You leave our office with Noticeable Whiter Teeth in 1 ½ hours
  • We recommend that for the first 7 days after whitening you drink any colored beverage with a straw, as your teeth will continue to whiten.
  • Whitening can last for 5 – 7 years depending on the amount of Soda, Tea, Coffee or red wine you drink.  And/or if you are a smoker
  • One time cost of $515.00

Benefits of take-home Whitening Trays:

  • Take-home whitening solution deposits small amounts of bleach on the teeth over several weeks. The peroxide stays on the teeth for up to 36 hours, and when a new dose of bleach is applied, the effects are greater.
  • Low Sensitivity. In-office whiteners use high concentrations of peroxide and lamps or lasers for drastic results. If your teeth are sensitive, this may increase irritation. The take-home Whitening solution will have a lower concentration of peroxide, greatly reducing the incidence of tooth sensitivity.
  • Convenient. Use the take-home trays for just 30 minutes a day in the comfort of your own home
  • A $350.00 onetime cost for the custom whitening trays which include whitening solution for 14 – 21 days. 
  • Additional solution can be purchased in our office so anytime you want to freshen up your smile with whiter teeth you can.

Benefits of Professional strength Whitening Strips:

  • Professional strength Crest Strips are 3 times stronger than whitening strips you can by in the store
  • Low Sensitivity.  If your teeth are extremely sensitive we recommend that you try whitening strips before anything else.  Unlike other whitening options if during the process you experience any sensitivity you can immediately remove the strip, rinse with warm saltwater and the sensation should go away immediately.
  • Convenient.  Place the strips on for just 30 minutes a day in the comfort of your own home, during your commute, or even while you are at work!
  • A box of 42 strips (21 for the top and 21 for the bottom) is $100.00.

When you come in for your appointment, we will happily help you decide which whitening option will be best for you!
