Teeth Whitening | Smile Again – with Confidence!

Thinking about Whitening?

Most people wouldn’t mind having whiter, younger-looking teeth. In fact research shows that the absolute majority of people make judgments based on the condition of your teeth. Despite the fact that we brush, floss, rinse, and go for our regular dental checkups, years of wear and tear have still taken their toll. Whether it’s routine exposure to coffee or tea, tobacco, or staining foods like blueberry or cherry pie, our teeth can probably use some TLC to bring back that sparkling smile of our youth. The good news is that Schwan Dental can help you improve the brilliance of your smile!

There seem to be endless options out there to whiten your teeth. A quick browse through the local pharmacy will reveal lots over-the-counter options: whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, floss, strips, gels, and trays with a range of prices that appeal to penny-pinchers as well as those willing to splurge. And many of these products offer a guarantee: results similar to professional, dental-office whitening in just minutes a day over the course of several days or a couple of weeks, but at a fraction of the cost of a professional whitening session.
