Whitening: The best options

Teeth Whitening: What are today’s best options?

When it comes to looking your best, a bright, white smile is a real asset. Patients often ask, “What are the best whitening options available today?”

Whitening can get your smile looking its best. Non-professional procedures and over-the counter products can often lead to unsatisfactory results.

If you’re considering whitening your teeth, you should look for a whitening procedure that is:

  • Fast and Convenient
  • Long Lasting
  • Proven to be safe and effective
  • Performed by a dental Professional

The two best options for effective whitening today are “Take-Home” Whitening and Accelerated “In-Office” Whitening.

Let’s talk about both:

“Take-home” Whitening:
Take home whitening usually involves a simple impression to create custom-made whitening trays along with a prescription-strength whitening gel. A patient would wear the trays for about an hour a day for up to 2 weeks–usually achieving a smile 4-5 shades lighter than before.

Bright Star Dental is the only office in Las Cruces to offer a “take-home” program called Whitening For Life!

When you come into our office for your initial comprehensive exam or your first cleaning, we provide you with custom-made whitening trays and two tubes of prescription whitening gel for a one-time enrollment fee of just $99.

Then, every six months when you return for your regular cleaning, you will receive a touch-up kit of bleaching gel absolutely Free…for Life. This amazing offer will help you achieve and maintain a beautiful smile!

Accelerated “In-Office” Whitening:
For accelerated whitening, a patient is treated in a dental office. First, a protective material is painted gently over the gums. The patient may also be asked to wear protective “sun glasses”.

Prescription-strength whitening gel is then placed on the teeth and a high-intensity light is applied to the gel “accelerating” the whitening process. This step may be repeated 2-3 times.

At Bright Star, we provide our patients with ZOOM, the one-hour whitening system.

In just one hour, your teeth can be whiter and brighter–up to 7 shades lighter. You’ll relax in our heated massage chair while your teeth are gently whitened under the supervision of one of our certified team members.

I hope this information was helpful–if you have any other questions about Whitening, please contact our office at (575) 635-4008 or our e-mail:
