Because professional teeth whitening is still the most effective method of brightening your smile, our dentist, Dr. Jaclyn Turnbow, is pleased to offer this treatment for our patients in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, seeking to remove unsightly stains and whiten their teeth.

You may be wondering why your teeth become discolored. There are actually a variety of factors which can change a tooth’s color, including the normal aging process, excessive fluoridation, tobacco use, medications you may be taking, illness, genetic defects, even just your day-to-day consumption of darker beverages like tea, coffee, soda or red wine can alter your teeth’s coloration.

First, your dentist will examine your smile. This is to determine whether your gums and teeth are healthy enough to receive a bleaching treatment, and, to assess whether your tooth stains or discoloration can be noticeably whitened. When you come in for your teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Jaclyn Turnbow will start by protecting the gums with a shield. Next, a bleaching agent or whitening gel will be applied to your teeth.
