Teeth Whitening - White for Life Club

Mother Teresa had something profound to say about a smile; "We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do."

Waters Family Dentistry is grateful to be in the segment of health care that helps people feel confident about their smiles. We are happy to offer an affordable, convenient way to make your smile even brighter, teeth whitening!

Why Your Teeth Discolor

For many of us, our teeth can become darker as we age. This occurs because the outer layer of enamel thins and the darker layer of dentin shows through. But aging isn't the only thing that dims our smile; drinking certain beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine, and eating various foods can cause staining. Even some medications cause staining. We recommend having a professional cleaning with one of our hygienists to remove stains on the outside of teeth and then whitening your teeth with a process you can do at home.

White for Life Club at Waters Family Dentistry

Dr. Waters is happy to offer our White for Life Club for all our Grand Island office patients. This program is a great way for you to whiten your teeth and to maintain your desired tooth shade for a lifetime!

We begin by taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth and making custom trays to use in the whitening process. We will schedule a five to ten-minute appointment with one of our dental assistants who will give you hands-on instructions and show you a video that explains how it works.

We will provide you with four syringes of whitening gel. The active ingredient in the gel is 10 percent carbamide peroxide and also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to help prevent tooth sensitivity. This type of gel is only available through dental offices and is safe and effective.

You will place the gel on the inside of the tray that fits snugly against the lip side of your teeth. The trays should be worn at least four hours, but many of our patients wear the trays overnight. We expect you will see results in 10 to 14 days. We recommend you wear the upper trays first to see the contrast between the upper and the lower teeth.

How Our White for Life Club Works

The membership fee for this program is $179. Included in that fee are both custom trays and four initial syringes of whitening gel. Then, each time you return to our office for your recommended hygiene visit, you will receive two syringes of gel (a maximum of four per year).

Similar to a hair color you receive in a salon, the shade of teeth may slightly darken as time goes by. However, with regular touch-ups, you will be able to maintain the whiteness you originally achieved.

Patient responsibilities to be eligible for the two free syringes per hygiene visit include:

  • Maintain Dr. Waters' recommended interval for hygiene visits.
  • Keep your mouth healthy by staying current with any restorative treatment recommended by Dr. Waters.
  • Keep your financial account balance current.

Lost or damaged trays can be replaced for a fee of $79. Yes, sometimes, puppies think these trays look like chew toys!
