Professional Teeth Whitening in Salem OR

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening is safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special whitening agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

Is Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Safe?

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Patient Review

I had a bad tooth that needed removed and have suffered from dental anxiety from prior procedures gone wrong. This doctor and staff were the most patient caring staff I have ever encountered. This will be our dental home!

Patient Review

My daughter has been going to Dr. Martin since she was 2 (she’s now 14). I was nervous when Dr. Martin retired not knowing who we were going to have next and prepared to leave the office if we didn’t mesh although we’d miss all of the way of the staff so much. I shouldn’t have worried and should have known that Dr. Martin and Cody would choose a fabulous dentist to take over the practice. With Dr. Snyder doing adult dentistry I became a patient myself. I even pay separately for my daughter to have my dental care instead of what she has under my husband so that we could continue going to Snyder Dentistry. 5 stars and highly recommended.

Patient Review

My family have been coming to this office for 12 years now. Throughout the years the care the two of my boys received here has been nothing but stellar and we were the biggest Dr Martin's fans. After Dr Martin's retirement the practice was assumed by the new providers The Snyder family, but all the support staff remained the same. And the new providers are wonderful. My son just had a dental procedure yesterday done by Dr Nathan Snyder and it was truly impressive to see my 6 year old trusting his doctor and staff so much, he actually left happy and excited he got his tooth pulled out. Thank you for being one of a kind, supportive, accomodating, caring and truly enjoying what you do!

I've had no procedures done for myself but my children have and they have no fear of going to the dentist now. In fact they've asked when they would get to go again in hopes it would be soon. The entire staff is genuinely friendly and welcoming and we enjoy every visit.
