With the bevy of over-the-counter whitening options available, having a whitening procedure performed at the dentist’s office may seem a bit redundant. However, the fact remains that it’s actually much easier, quicker, and more efficient to get whitening done at the dentist’s office.

Convenient options such as whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can brighten lightly stained teeth, and over-the-counter whitening kits can whiten more effectively, but these products are often hit or miss.

For more powerful whitening that can brighten your teeth by as much as 10 shades in a single visit, in-office whitening is what you need. Dr. James Gunelson uses a much more powerful bleaching gel than is available from store-bought or over-the-counter options. Many people will need only the single visit to reach their desired brightness.

If extra bleaching is needed, our dentist might use a laser to boost the treatment or recommend a professional take-home whitening treatment so you can touch up the whitening whenever you need. Our dental team wants to be sure you have a bright smile you can be proud of.

If you would like to learn more about teeth whitening options or schedule an appointment with Dr. James Gunelson, please call Stanley Hometown Dentistry LLC at 715-644-3601 or come to our office in Stanley, Wisconsin.
