Nothing brings a person confidence like showing off their pearly whites with a smile! If you’re looking to bring a new shine to your teeth, Bumgardner Family Dental can help. We offer multiple cosmetic dentistry services for our patients including teeth whitening systems. 

There are two different options for patients who want to get a more radiant smile including an in-office teeth whitening system and a take-home whitening system. Compare these options below to see which one is the best fit for your lifestyle.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Life is so hectic, and we understand that you may not have time for long dental visits. This is why we are happy to offer our in-office whitening service, which takes under an hour to complete. 

With a comfortable warming mouthpiece, patients can expect little to no sensitivity during the process. The results of one session vary but typically patients go 4 to 5 shades whiter.  For the best results, it is recommended that you stay away from coffee and acidic drinks for 3 days following your visit. Depending on the types of food you eat and what you drink on a daily basis, results can last for several months.

Step by Step:

  1. Clean the teeth
  2. Select a pre-procedure shade and take pictures
  3. Place a cheek/lip retractor 
  4. Apply a barrier to the gums and insert cotton rolls
  5. Apply the bleach to the teeth
  6. Insert the warmed mouthpiece to activate the chemical
  7. Wait 8 minutes
  8. Take out mouthpiece/clean chemical off teeth and mouthpiece
  9. Reapply the chemical and reinsert the mouthpiece 
  10. Repeat 3 to 4 times
  11. After finishing, we clean, rinse, and take a post-op picture of the shade

Pricing for In-Office System

$225 per arch (or) $450 for top and bottom

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you have a busy schedule and are interested in something you can do at home, then the take-home whitening system is the one for you! The main difference with the take-home system is that the results will be gradual and will take a few weeks, but it is convenient because you can use it when needed to touch up over time. 

We offer two options for the take-home whitening service, and both of these systems come with a custom tray.

  1. Daytime
    Wear the mouthpiece during the day for up to 2 hours. 
  2. Nighttime
    Wear the mouthpiece at night while you sleep.

Step by Step:

  1. We take upper and lower impressions. (10 minute appointment)
  2. We pour up those impressions in stone and make the custom trays. Once complete, usually in 1 to 2 days, we call the patient to come back in.
  3. We give the trays to the patient, making sure they fit correctly and are comfortable. At this time, we also go over instructions for use and cleaning and give the patient the whitening gel.

Pricing for Take-Home System

$150 per arch (or) $300 for top and bottom
