We’re heading into a season that is often packed with special events: graduations, weddings, reunions, and more. Given this, you want to look your best. At Bickler Dentistry, we can help you get white teeth. So your smile will look great on the day of your event and later in photos and videos. 

We offer several ways to whiten teeth, one of which will be right for you. It will depend on several things, including the type and extent of your staining, the condition of your teeth, and your budget. To see which method is best for you, call Bickler Dentistry today at 503-647-4645 to schedule a consultation in Salem, OR.

In the meantime, see some pros and cons of these whitening methods:

  • Professional Teeth Whitening – This is the simplest and least expensive teeth whitening option, which is why your dentist tends to suggest it first. You’ll get results that are brighter than what you can get from a drugstore product, whether you choose an in-office treatment or home whitening. An office treatment lightens your teeth up to eight shades in about an hour. Home whitening is more gradual, and you’ll have the convenience of whitening whenever you’d like. Certain kinds of stains will not respond well to pro whitening, so we may recommend one of two other treatments. 
  • Dental Veneers – These versatile restorations will cover stubborn stains when applied to the front of your teeth. They are custom made for you at a lab, according to your specifications. They hide other flaws too, including cracks, chips, misshapen teeth, small gaps, and general wear and tear. Because they can change the size, shape, and color of teeth, they can completely transform your smile. With proper care, they will last at least a decade – and often years longer. 
  • Tooth Bonding – A bonding treatment involves applying layers of composite resin to your teeth to cover stains. Like veneers, bonding can conceal other issues too. Budget-wise, it costs more than whitening but less than veneers. It also falls in the middle when it comes to longevity. Your results will last longer than a whitening treatment but not as long as veneers.
