White for Life: What is it and Why Should I Get it?

Do you ever admire someone’s teeth because they gleam? They’re always white and look so healthy. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile and one of the least expensive, too. It’s getting even easier now with a program called White for Life.

White for Life is a unique program at Klement Family Dental, that provides patients with a free tube of whitening solution twice a year at dental cleanings. It’s a way to keep that smile looking white and healthy all year long.

What happens when you sign up?
After a consultation, we’ll take an impression of your teeth. That will be used to make custom bleaching trays. These are thin trays that hold the whitening solution. You’ll also be sent home with a tube of professional quality whitening gel. Then at each future dental cleaning, we’ll provide an additional tube of the solution for continued use at home.

Why not just use drugstore whitening products?
Here are advantages to White for Life over drugstore whitening products:

  • White for Life whitening is professional quality and strength.
  • The dentist ensures that the solution strength you bring home is the right one for you.
  • The custom trays from the dental office fit your teeth better than whitening strips or over-the-counter trays you mold yourself after boiling them.
  • The custom-made trays ensure better contact between the whitening solution and your teeth, so the right amount is applied and it reaches your teeth evenly.

Is White for Life good for everyone?
In order to get a safe whitening, your teeth should be free of cavities and there’s a certain level of gum health required. The dentist and hygienist will be able to tell you if this program is a match for you.

Are refills really free?
Yes! At each dental cleaning (up to two a year), you can get another whitening tube at no cost. It’s an incentive for you to continue maintaining your dental health. After all, there’s no point in having white teeth if they’re not healthy.

What are my other options for teeth whitening?
At Klement Family Dental, we’re happy to talk to you about all options for teeth whitening. We can whiten your teeth at the dental office using a professional tooth whitening procedure as well. This is a good way to start the White for Life process. We can also place veneers or crowns on teeth that are discolored or damaged. This is a more involved process than traditional teeth whitening, but is a good option for some teeth.
