There is a dizzying array of products available at the store and online that claim to whiten stained and discolored teeth but often fail to live up to those marketing claims. Absolute Dental Care provides professional teeth whitening and teeth bleaching services to our valued patients in Nixa and across southwestern Missouri.
Dentists like Dr. Todd Anderson have access to stronger whitening or bleaching products. These products contain peroxide-based ingredients, proven to remove stains and lighten the color of teeth. Professional whitening or bleaching systems also contain high concentrations of these active, known ingredients. These characteristics support our ability to provide noticeable improvements in the shade of patients’ teeth.
Furthermore, Dr. Anderson oversees every aspect of treatment. Since he accounts for factors such as patients’ facial and smile characteristics and goals, professional teeth whitening at our office gets natural and desirable results. The process of whitening or bleaching teeth is also comfortable. By getting to know you and your needs, Dr. Anderson can take steps to minimize discomfort and tooth sensitivity. He also takes appropriate safeguards to prevent potential damage to the teeth and oral tissues.
The first step to a bright smile starts with a consultation. Dr. Anderson examines your teeth, gums, and mouth. He also discusses your preferences and goals. Everything from the aging process to habits such as your daily coffee or tea can result in stains. Over time, your teeth may appear yellow, brown, and otherwise lackluster.
Some patients desire a dramatic transformation in the color of their teeth. They may benefit from our teeth bleaching services, making teeth lighter than their original color. We can even lighten stubborn or resistantly-stained and discolored teeth.
Dentists can whiten teeth quickly at the office. Or, they can recommend home whitening with custom oral appliances or “trays.” Some patients can benefit from both office “power” whitening and home whitening. Precautions are taken to protect the surrounding tissues from damage during in-office procedures.
For the take-home option, customized trays deliver powerful whitening or bleaching gels to the teeth. Due to the precise fit of these trays, the gels are applied evenly, and treatment is comfortable and risk-free. When worn as directed, these trays gradually brighten and lighten the teeth.
