Teeth Whitening

Whiten your teeth

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Patient Review By Kathy P

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. S for years. I cannot say enough about his level of knowledge, skill and professionalism. Moreover, he genuinely cares about his patients level of comfort and satisfaction. He is truly a dental artist. The entire staff is friendly and competent and the office runs like a well oiled machine. As a health care professional myself, I know I couldn’t receive a better level of care. PS My teeth look awesome!

Patient Review By erica l

I can not express how thankful I am for finding Schwanekamp Dentistry. I have a systemic health issue that has caused a deterioration in my dental health this past year. The dentist and his staff were welcoming, friendly, and non-judgmental. I have grown very self concious about my teeth this past year. I have had two appointments so far for 4 fillings each time. While this is the most extensive dental work I've ever hard, it was the smoothest and most painless. In the past I have experienced extreme pain from white fillings with a different dentist. My severely decayed teeth look brand new! The dentist and his assistant did a fantastic job rebuilding and saving my teeth! The day after my dental work I was astounded when I was able to eat like normal, with no pain. He takes a lot of pride in his work and the techniques he used to rebuild my teeth, is like night and day compared to previous work I have had in my mouth. I'm so glad I switched dentists to Dr. Schwanekamp. I trust my dentist, I love the work he does, and I do not have anxiety about coming to the dentist anymore.

Patient Review By Sharron H

As a nervous dental patient and fearing all procedures, due to bad experiences as a child, I have never had a dentist that works in this fashion. He takes all the time you need to go over whatever concerns you may have, speaks to you with genuine concern about your fears/anxieties and really listens. Dr. Schwanekamp is the first dentist who has actually been able to make me feel relaxed during lengthy procedures, he quietly and confidently assures you he can manage your procedure pain-free and does so each time. He has a lovely calm, quiet demeanor throughout procedures which helps to keep you at ease. He really appears to love his work and takes pride in all aspects of it, his attention to detail is notable. Dr. Schwanekamp and his staff are outstanding and I am thrilled to have found a fantastic new dentist.

Patient Review By Ronald G

There is nothing I can say about Dr. Dave Schmanekamp that is negative in any way. First off he is the best of the best in my opinion where at 68 years young I think I am kinda of an authority. Most important his personal skills are extraordinary. He is extremely personable, very friendly and open 24/7 to serve your needs if your experience discomfort during his office hours. In the heart of hearts I believe that everybody was born with some kind of skill set. Dr. Dave is takes tremendous pride in his work, and that is so very obvious. If soul goal is to provide all his patients with the best dental care possible, and he validates that by asking all is his patience if there 100% satisfied. His prices are reasonable, and you receive unbelievable care for the reasonable fee's he charges... One more thing: He is a consummate gentleman, and I look forward to going to going to see him, which is uncharacteristic of all personal who require Dental care.

Patient Review By Laura C

I have always had dental anxiety and generally don't like people in my "bubble" of personal space. I was having tooth pain and needed a restoration on my molar. Dr. Schwanekamp talked me through the whole thing and made me less nervous. Excellent care and calming atmosphere.
