Cosmetic dentistry is increasingly popular, especially whitening. Whitening options vary widely in quality and price. The solution for many people is at-home, prescription-strength whitening trays. It offers better quality than over-the-counter products, and it’s an affordable option.
Future of Dentistry offers “White for Life” as a way to make whiter teeth an attainable goal for our patients. With this program, you get free whitening gel every six months when you come in for your hygiene appointments. For $275, you receive custom-made whitening trays and enrollment in the program. All you have to do is maintain your twice-a-year hygiene appointments.
You’ll receive a tube of prescription-grade whitening gel at these appointments. We offer the Zoom! brand from Philips, which is not available OTC. The trays stay in place for good coverage, whereas strips sometimes fall out of place. While in-office whitening is potent and effective, some patients feel the trays offer flexibility. They like being able to whiten on the go, around the house. They also like being able to whiten before a special occasion like a wedding.
If you already have Zoom! whitening trays but aren’t enrolled in White for Life, you can pay the cost difference to be upgraded into the program.
For an on-the-go option, ask us about the Zoom! pen. It’s ideal for touch-ups in between whitening treatments, especially when things get busy around the house or when you’re traveling.
