Teeth Whitening Treatments in Salt Lake City
After nearly three decades as a dentist, Dr. Gleave knows which whitening treatments create the safest, most effective results. The products we use are:
Premium teeth whitening treatment in our office, which usually takes only 1 to 1 1/2 hours to apply while you relax. Results in little if any sensitivity, unlike most other professional bleaching products.
Nite White & Opalescence
These take-home kits only require wearing customized, comfortable trays while you sleep or during the day.
Teeth whitening strips that are less expensive, can easily be used at home, and come in different flavors!
Brighter Results With Professional Teeth Whitening
You’ll find plenty of “quick-fix” whitening products in a store or pharmacy. But they have lower concentrations of whitening agents than professional teeth whitening. In addition, some of them can cause harm to your teeth and gums if used improperly.
If you require whitening trays for your treatment, Dr. Rod Gleave will make sure they are completely comfortable so you can work or rest without distraction while your smile becomes brighter. Custom trays also make it easier to apply whitening gel. Often, we recommend having custom trays made after whitening in our office so you can maintain your bright results.
Call (801) 262-0744 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Gleave, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). He’ll help you determine which type of teeth whitening is right for you. We’re ready to help you get a whiter, brighter smile!

Professional Whitening vs Over The Counter (OTC)
If someone asked you if you wanted whiter teeth, what would you say?
If you are like most people posed with this question, you are going to say that of course you want a whiter smile.
The next question is how do you get that whiter smile?
Knowing your options is the first step to finding that brighter smile you wished you could have. Rod Gleave, DMD wants to help you know what whitening options you have at your disposal. Take a look at this list, and get to know the world of dental whitening.
Over the Counter Whitening
In every grocery store or drugstore across the country, you will find a whole section of an aisle dedicated to over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening solutions. It has become a big business, and for good reason. People are figuring out how much of a boost whiter teeth give their smile.
Now, one thing to be aware of is that you truly get what you pay for with OTC whitening. The more expensive it is, the more potent it is, and the more potent it is, the whiter your teeth will get. You can find some dental whitening options for a few dollars. You can also find them for as much as $99. It all depends on how much whitening you want. OTC dental whiteners have a range of concentrations from 5 percent all the way to 15 percent.
The FDA capped the concentration level to make sure that people don’t hurt themselves on their way to a better, brighter smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
This is where you graduate from the minor leagues of dental whitening (natural and OTC brands) to the big leagues.
Professional level dental whiteners start at 15 percent concentration and range all the way to 40 percent. The higher concentration means a more intense whitening experience. Your smile can be transformed after only a single treatment.
Dr. Gleave uses Venus White products and can give you a smile that is up to several shades whiter after only one treatment.
Some OTC brands may give you a couple shades, and it will take you a month. Venus White brightens shades in about an hour, or even a week at home.
Professional whitening costs will vary depending on what type of whitening is used. The one thing that is certain is that if you are looking for a truly whiter smile, there really is no other choice besides whitening from our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Rod Gleave.
