Red, WHITE and Blue!

Red, WHITE and Blue!

In celebration of Independence day, throughout the month of July, Glacier Dental is offering free whitening consults. In addition, we will be offering $50 off all in-house whitening. This special is good for new and current patients.

Summer is a great time to whiten your teeth. Not only are there weddings and other various family functions going on, senior pictures are right around the corner. Who doesn't want whiter teeth for pictures that will last a lifetime?

So now you're probably thinking, what whitening options are available to me? How long is this going to last? Am I a good candidate for this? All these questions can be answered at your free consult, but here's a little insight on the whitening Glacier Dental has to offer.

If you're looking for something simple and easy to take home, Treswhite would be perfect for you. This doesn't require any impressions or in-office work. You simply purchase Treswhite, take home your 10, pre-gelled trays, and wear 1 every day for 10 days for one hour. Although Treswhite are not part of Glacier Dental's whitening promotion, it is a great option for whitening your teeth fast.

Another great, in-house option, is Opalescence. According to, "Opalescence will give you a brighter, whiter smile in a way that fits your budget AND your lifestyle." After your consult, one of Dr. Steckbauer's assistants will take impressions of your teeth and make you custom trays. It typically takes about 1-2 days before your trays are ready to be picked up.

When you're ready to start using your trays, simply put a small amount of Opalescence gel in the trays and wear them for two hours, for two weeks. If you're interested in seeing before and after pictures, visit:

The final option Glacier Dental has to offer is KöR. According the the KöR website, KöR is a great option for anyone ages 14-90 and offers nearly permanent results. The website also states, "KöR Whitening was ranked highest as the most effective, reliable way to whiten your teeth permanently, by a respected dental products journal."

To have KöR whitening done, again the assistants make you custom trays. You would use take-home gel for two weeks and you'd wear your trays over night. After the two weeks is done, you'd come back to the office and do the three hour whitening portion in-house. It's a comfortable and simple procedure and is safe for your gums and teeth. KöR is highly recommended if you want to your teeth to be whiter than ever! Check out the KöR website for some excellent reviews:

After talking to Dr. Steckbauer regarding Opalescence and KöR, he said the results are excellent and will last quite a long time. He also mentioned if you do decide to use one of the in-house options, you wouldn't have to re-do the full cycle of whitening again. If you notice an returning yellow on your teeth, you just do touch-up whitening to get them back to bright white again.
