Stress-free and safe Professional Teeth Whitening for a healthy and confident smile

Nothing shines quite as brilliantly as a confident, healthy-looking smile. An inviting smile breaks down barriers between people and instills and exudes warmth. Likewise, at Absolute Dental Care, we understand that stained, yellow teeth can convey the opposite. If you don’t like your smile, you tend to hide it. You may be communicating that you are unfriendly, untrustworthy, or all sorts of things that do not mesh with your true personality. Fortunately, Dr. Todd Anderson and our team in Nixa have one of the most dramatic and quick ways to add that healthy vigor and confidence back into your smile: professional teeth whitening!

Whitening methods prescribed, applied, and overseen by dental professionals achieve predictable, even, and natural-looking results. Additionally, they account for potentially undesirable side effects, such as tooth sensitivity. The whitening agents and techniques that we use are also clinically proven to be safe and do not present additional threats or risks to your teeth and the tissues that support and surround them. 

The beauty and ease of teeth whitening at the dentist’s office

Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office differs in more than a couple of considerable ways from the over-the-counter products that claim to whiten teeth. These differences include: 

  • Professional whitening gels are formulated with active ingredients that are clinically proven to whiten teeth, such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. 
  • These gels contain a sufficient concentration of the peroxide base to remove stains and make a real, notable difference in the appearance of your smile. 
  • Professional teeth whitening can be adjusted to accommodate your one-of-a-kind needs and preferences; for instance, we may prescribe a less concentrated gel if tooth sensitivity is a concern. Likewise, if you only want to whiten teeth by a few shades, the gel may be applied for a shorter period to get the desired results. 
  • Safeguards are taken to assure your utmost comfort and to protect your health. OTC products are generally marketed as “one size fits all” or as “universally appropriate.” Inevitably, those off-the-shelf whitening trays are loose, slip around, and rub against delicate tissues. They don’t seal in the whitening gel, which can leak and irritate the gums and neighboring oral structures. Every aspect of the process is customized to your specific needs, from the trays used to whiten your teeth to the wear time each day and the total duration of treatment. During in-office treatment, we also prepare your mouth before the whitening gel is applied to protect surrounding tissues. 


Regardless of the type of treatment selected (in-office or home whitening with custom trays), our patients have peace of mind that the process will be stress-free, safe, comfortable, efficient. And get stunning results that are well-suited to them and are in line with their “goal smile.” Lastly, professional whitening that works (without the risk!) is well worth the cost. Please do not throw your hard-earned money at yet another whitening product, kit, or system that does not live up to its lofty promises. Trust your smile to a partner in dental health, Dr. Todd Anderson and Absolute Dental Care. Call (417) 815-6797 to schedule your appointment today.
