Teeth Whitening

Anyone who aspires to whiter teeth has plenty of options for attaining them. While store-bought products will deliver some results, it’s safer for your smile to choose professional teeth whitening in Springfield, MO. Not only will you see more dramatic results, but you can be assured of a whitening procedure that is customized specifically for your needs.

When used as directed by your dentist or hygienist, it is a safe procedure that won’t damage your enamel. However, the temptation to over-whiten with over-the-counter products can lead to tooth sensitivity, gum irritation, and loss of tooth enamel.

Your best bet if you are considering teeth whitening is to consult your hygienist or cosmetic dentist. At White Smiles Family Dental, we use Zoom! products and offer both in-office whitening and customized take-home kits. Professional teeth whitening in Springfield, MO gets your smile brighter faster and helps you avoid the pitfalls of at-home kits.

An in-office procedure takes about an hour and is perfect if you are on a tight timeline for a big event like a wedding, reunion, or business presentation. If you have a little more time, we recommend customized take-home kits that are convenient and produce beautiful, long-lasting results.

If you have always wanted a bright, white smile but worry about the risks, call our Springfield dental office to schedule a dental cleaning. We will determine your needs and recommend the teeth whitening procedure that we think will be the safest and most effective option for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Springfield, MO

If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or misaligned, you might be a good candidate for invisible braces. We are proud to offer Invisalign clear braces as an option to traditional metal braces. This system allows us to straighten crooked and crowded teeth like traditional braces, but because the trays are made of clear plastic, comfort and esthetics are increased significantly. The removable aligners mean that you will have no food restrictions, and since cleaning your teeth is easy, you can maintain your good oral health during treatment. Treatment times with Invisalign are also quite a bit faster than with traditional braces.

We also offer dental veneers, which are thin, translucent covers for your teeth. They are able to camouflage a variety of dental issues, including spaces, gaps, discoloration, and even misalignment. Dental crowns are used cosmetically to cover up a tooth that is discolored or misshapen.
