Teeth Whitening: The Professional Advantage

Is your smile looking a bit dingy? If you think it’s time to invest in tooth whitening, you may be trying to choose between over the counter whitening methods and professional teeth whitening from your dentist. Although the cheaper whitening strips or toothpaste may seem appealing, there are some significant advantages of visiting your dentist for a whiter smile. Professional tooth whitening is considered safer, faster and more effective.


Repetitive use of the counter whitening treatment can result in chemical burns to your gums and soft tissues in your mouth. In addition, over the counter products take no consideration of any pre-existing conditions or tooth decay that could be problematic during your treatment. Professional whitening, on the other hand, does not harm your teeth and is administered by a certified and trained professional. Your professional teeth whitening appointment always begins with a thorough examination of your current dental health first so that future pain or sensitivity is avoided.


Most professional or laser whitening treatments deliver results in just one visit. Years of stains can be erased in just about an hour, depending on the specific professional whitening product and technique. Even at-home professional whitening can produce results in as little as 10 days, which is far less than multiple nights and days in whitening strips or months of using a whitening toothpaste.

More Effective

If you are looking for teeth whitening that carries the greatest guarantee for results, you should elect a whitening procedure from your dentist. Professional teeth whitening are customized for your specific teeth. Each unique contour and groove in your teeth are addressed so that the whitening results are even and effective. At home professional whitening uses custom trays that have been molded to your teeth so that the whitening gel can work best. The gel used in professional whitening is stronger and holds a high-grade peroxide that can eliminate deep-set stains within the pores of the teeth.

Gilreath Family Dentistry uses KöR bleaching protocol as the most effective, kindest to the teeth and tissues and longest lasting. Depending on your tooth color and history of prior bleaching, they offer both “in-office” and “at-home” bleaching options.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
