Your teeth have lost a bit of their luster, and you have heard that whitening may be a good solution. You wonder if it's safe? How long will the results last? Is it worth the cost? Dr. Nelson has answers for you! Here we will discuss your options for teeth whitening in Missoula, MT and what they entail so you can make the right decision for your needs.

Over-the-Counter Whitening Options

There is a wide array of generic whitening choices at your local grocery or drug store. In fact, the options may seem overwhelming; where do you begin? While many of them are effective for some patients, it really depends on the results you are trying to achieve. If you decide to try one of these options, Dr. Nelson is happy to make recommendations for you.

These products don't have the same strength as the whitening gel your dentist has access to, so it may take longer to reach your goals. These products are also one-size-fits-all, so they may not fit as well or be as comfortable to use.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

These are customized trays that Dr. Nelson will make based on impressions we take of your teeth. They offer a snug fit to protect your gums and soft tissue from excess whitening gel. The other benefit of take-home trays is that you will always have them available to refresh your smile whenever you like because you can get more whitening gel from our office.

In-Office Whitening in Missoula

This is the fastest way to brighten your smile. In-office whitening utilizes a high strength whitening gel and can be done during one appointment. You will leave our office with immediate results. It's also ideal to whiten under the supervision of your dentist in case you encounter any issues with sensitivity.
