Teeth Whitening − Mission KS

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” 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 bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching 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 bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

Imagine Smiling Confidently With a Brighter Smile!

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 porcelain 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 without providing the desired results, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Some people will experience tooth sensitivity when bleaching. The great thing about this process is we can reduce your amount of exposure by using less bleaching agent, bleaching for a shorter period or time, or skipping days and still arrive at the same ultimate benefit. Although it will take a little longer to reach your desired shade, this option is highly recommended for individuals who experience discomfort.

Bleaching is not a permanent solution. After months of subjecting your teeth to stains your teeth will slowly darken again. We have “touch-up” kits which will quickly bring back the white brilliance you desire.

Dr. Jonathan was great! He seems a very thoughtful capable addition to your practice. He listened, researched my... chart, and took swift action. Because I had so many questions, my cleaning got interrupted and wasn’t as thorough as usual. Only half my mouth got cleaned in the process. I was a late in the day appointment too. 🤷🏻‍♂️read more

Today was my 6monthly appointment with Paige/Hygenist and I will have repeat appointments with her for the future... because she does such a great job. She’s very thoughtful and considerate but most importantly, she was entirely thorough and made my visit today a pleasant one! Not an easy task when we all know the Dentist as a destination typically, gives us concerns for the outcome! I also met Dr.Jonathon for the first time and he was extremely pleasant and helpful with thoughts on future options for dental care ~ so thank you to him. I rate today’s visit 5 stars.read more

Another great experience at Keith & Associates. Sue, who I’ve seen for 15 years, always puts me at ease no matter how... difficult my cleaning may be. I wouldn’t see anyone else in the office. Sue is the consummate professional who really knows her stuff! Thank you so much.read more

I know several people who go here and love it, so I finally made an appointment for myself. I just wish I'd done it... sooner - so impressed by my experience there! Making an appointment online was easy, I hadn't even sat down yet in the waiting room when the hygienist came to get me, all of their staff was wonderful and the equipment was very high tech. I've had a lot of dental work done, but they had things I'd never seen before. I can't say enough good things about them!read more

Best dentist I've ever gone to. My teeth have never been taken care of so well so much so that I don't mind at all... driving 20 min to get to my appointments. For the first time since I started going to the dentist, I have not had to have a cavity filled and have not had any pain from sensitivity. Great for young children as well!!read more
