Hello. We are Dr. Brian Westover DMD and Robert Kowal DDS, experienced Clackamas general dentists serving the greater Portland area. One of the most common requests we get from our dental patients is whiter teeth.
We are happy to say that Clackamas dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening in Oregon, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
There are many dentists who offer in-office teeth bleaching, which can often be done in one visit. People who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.
Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.
As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in Portland.
If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Brookside Dental at 503-905-3380. Our friendly staff will schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at your convenience.
