Teeth Whitening

If you have dingy or tarnished teeth and want to improve the appearance of your smile, consider professional teeth whitening at Juanita Bay Dentist. You can erase years of stains to reveal a confident and stunningly white smile!

Get Your Glow on

With GLO whitening, you can get a brighter, whiter smile in about an hour. This whitening system is ideal if you have a big event coming up such as a wedding or graduation. GLO whitening works best for teeth that have no existing restorations such as no veneers or crowns on the anterior (front teeth).

Please note that professional teeth whitening at our practice is for those who are 16 and older.

How to Prepare for Your Appointment

We recommended using either a prescription toothpaste or Sensodyne® toothpaste approximately two weeks before whitening.

What to Expect

When you come in for in-chair whitening, we will do the following:

Take your initial teeth shade before whitening.

Apply vitamin E oil to your lips.

Polish your teeth with pumice.

Use a cheek retractor to isolate your teeth from your lips or cheeks.

Place a barrier over your gums to protect them from the bleach solution.

Start the whitening process.

Perform 4-8 minute whitening sessions with gel and an activation mouth light.

Take after-whitening pictures.
