Teeth Whitening

Has your smile lost its luster? Teeth whitening can be the solution that transforms your smile from stained back to sparkling.

You’ve probably noticed that teeth can darken over time. Over time, certain things can dim the sparkle of your smile. Drinks such as coffee, tea, and soda contribute to this, along with certain foods, medications, illnesses, and improper oral hygiene.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening works in two ways: it either removes enamel surface stains or changes the color of the dentin. Most over-the-counter teeth whitening products work to remove surface stains and can lighten your teeth a shade or two if used regularly.

Professional teeth whitening can bring your more dramatic results - whitening up to seven shades lighter with results lasting two to three years.


Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental team! We are proud to offer you Zoom Advanced Power—proven to be the best product available. We also use Opalescence by Ultradent for the whitening gels in the custom trays, and Tres White by Ultradent for disposable whitening trays.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Yes! Dr. Jon, DDS offers Zoom whitening in our Lincoln, CA dental office.

Zoom teeth whitening is an in-office bleaching process that uses a whitening gel activated by a special light. The Zoom gel is applied to your teeth for three 15-minute light activation sessions, for a total treatment time of about 45 minutes. You’ll receive a Zoom touch-up kit to take home after the procedure.

Opalescence Tooth Whitening

Opalescence teeth whitening is an in-office bleaching process that does not require a special light. A hydrogen peroxide power bleaching gel is applied to your teeth for 10 - 15 minutes sessions, lasting up to one to two hours, depending on the level of tooth discoloration and results you want to achieve.

Opalescence contains a patented mix of ingredients designed to reduce the risk of sensitivity associated with whitening and strengthen enamel.

Tres White Tooth Whitening

Tres White provides powerful bleaching with convenient pre-filled disposable trays. No impressions or molds are needed. Tres White is a great alternative to over-the-counter whitening products, providing a deeper bleach and offering the same teeth strengthening and sensitivity reducing ingredients as Opalescence.

For best results, professional teeth whitening is best done immediately following a dental cleaning.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS of Teeth Whitening?

The benefits of teeth whitening include:

  • Least costly cosmetic procedure
  • Easy, quick, and painless process
  • Immediate results

How Much Does In-Office Teeth Whitening Cost?

Professional, in-office teeth whitening is the most popular and least costly cosmetic dentistry procedure. The costs will vary depending on which process you and Dr. Jon choose to use.

The average cost of in-office whitening procedures is $500 - $650. These procedures require only one trip to the dentist yielding instant, noticable results.

The average cost of a take-home whitening procedure is $300 - $400. Take-home whitening is more effective than over-the-counter products while still being less costly than an in-office procedure. Results typically appear after 2 weeks of daily use.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Professional teeth whitening results are instantly noticeable and long-lasting. Our patients enjoy bright smiles for two to three years after a treatment. We can also provide you with a take-home kit to extend and maintain your results.

Naturally, there’s things you can do to keep your smile looking bright and beautiful.

Once we help you achieve the bright white smile you’re after, eat an apple, celery, or carrots daily… they make saliva that helps clean stains from your teeth naturally! Make sure to use a good electric toothbrush and toothpaste to help keep surface stains off. If you notice darkening starting to happen again, a couple touch-up sessions with either a custom or disposable whitening tray will help keep that perfect smile!

Is Professional Teeth Whitening Right for You?

Most smiles can benefit from professional teeth whitening. Professional whitening is great for stains caused by:

  • Aging
  • Certain foods and beverages (coffee, red wine, sodas)
  • Tobacco use

Not every smile can get the same results from whitening, however. Some stains may be resistant to teeth whitening, such as tooth discoloration from fluorosis, or those that have been stained by trauma causing the dentin to darken. People with severe sensitivity, peroxide allergies, gum disease, or worn enamel may not be good candidates for these types of whitening procedures. In these cases, Dr. Jon may recommend porcelain veneers or other option to give you a healthy, bright white smile.

Everyone deserves a smile to be proud of. Let Dr. Jon unveil yours with a professional teeth whitening procedure. Call us today and ask for a consultation for teeth whitening in our Lincoln, CA office.

Dr. Jon and his staff are all excellent at their jobs. They are courteous, professional, and personable. I highly recommend Dr. Jon to all who ask about great Dental Care.

William G.

His team never treated me different because of my age or my financial circumstances. They were always so nice and pleasant. They were helpful and I always felt at home when I was there. It’s crazy how people can make you feel that way by just being as positive and kind as his team was.

Ayrika Marco-Perez

Dr. Jon provided his opinion of what he felt I needed to have done, most of which my insurance would not cover and I definitely did not have the money to pay for. Over several visits, we worked out a payment plan and he began a series of improvements that to this day have greatly changed my appearance and confidence.

Colin Mason

Thanks to the use of one of their affordable and extremely effective teeth whiting solutions, I find myself smiling extra large for the camera these days. I have convinced all three generations of my family to also become patients of Dr. Jon and they are all just as pleased as I am.

David Lane

I was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Jon not only diagnosed my problem correctly, but also told me that he had the solution for it! I have been wearing my custom-made orthotic appliance for a few weeks now. I noticed the relief after just only a few days of wearing it. I almost couldn’t believe the difference! It seemed too good to be true—but it IS true! THANK YOU SO MUCH! TMD sufferers: do not wait another minute! See Dr. Jon and start to feel like yourself again!

Christie A.

I was experiencing dehabilitating headaches due to excessive clenching. I became unable to talk for long periods of time. After only a few treatments, my jaw pain and headaches decreased considerably and for the first time in nearly 8 months I was able to sleep through the night. My recommendation to invest in treatment is extremely high. Dr. Jon and his staff create an environment of healing and reassurance!

Mindy T.

I am so thrilled about my new teeth. They are fabulous! I am so much more confident to smile and not so self-conscious. I am in sales and it has made a world of difference in my confidence. Thanks to you and your wonderful team for an extremely positive experience.

Cindy Foster

Veneers made me more confident and have given me a better smile. In my line of work, I deal with the public a lot and it’s great to be smiling. Even my wife’s dentist complimented them [veneers].

Jeff Luzado

I have always received excellent service and I have referred family and friends and will continue doing so.

Carmen Pagett

Jon and his staff are so incredibly caring and professional!

Mickey Scott

WOW! No pain, a lot of gain. I thought after having those three fillings redone I’d have some residual soreness. Dr. Jon did such an excellent job and was so diligent—I had no pain the next day. I’ve had a lot of dental work done over the last 40 years, and never have I been to an office that takes such pride in their work and really cares so much about every patient.

Steve H.

Dr. Jon’s is by far the cleanest, friendliest, experienced, and patient orientated dental office that I’ve ever seen. It’s actually a pleasure to go to the dentist…FINALLY!


I was very pleased & satisfied with my first visit to Dr. Jon’s office. His staff went out of their way to accommodate my concerns & my schedule. My initial exam was unlike any dental exam I’ve ever experienced in my life. Digital photography was used in an amazingly informative way to explain the plan of care Dr. Jon recommended for me.

Linda W.

I needed a dentist and Dr. Jon came highly recommended. So I took a chance and made an appointment. I have to say that from the first call to actual appointment, everything was above expectation. The confidence of Dr. Jon and the patience he showed, his great staff and the facilities made my drive from Elk Grove well worth it. Anyone and everyone that needs a dentist, this is the one to see.
