An unappealing smile can leave you feeling awkward and uncomfortable in social situations. Here at Bear River Dental our team of highly trained dental professionals have the tools and training to give you the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted.

Every year millions of Americans look in the mirror and wish they had a bright white smile. Most turn to retail grade whitening products in hopes of whitening their smile on their own. Many people with minor to moderate stained teeth will try using a brand of whitening gel to improve their smile.

Moderately stained teeth can often be whitened by using dental whitening gel. Most whitening gels use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These are much stronger than the whitening agents you find in whitening toothpaste or strips.

To use whitening gel, you simply pour a small amount into the trays provided. The trays are then inserted into your mouth and held there for up to half an hour. If any of the whitening gel gets on your gums, you should remove it as soon as possible with a clean cotton swab.

If your teeth are deeply stained, whitening gel will most likely not be potent enough to whiten your teeth. In a situation like this Bear River Dental can administer a professional tooth bleaching procedure to safely and effectively whiten your smile.

If you would like to explore your whitening options, you should call Bear River Dental at 307.789.5608 to schedule an appointment.
