Are your teeth stained, discolored, or just a whole lot duller than they used to be? Whether it's because of tobacco use, eating or drinking the wrong things or the normal effects of aging, your teeth eventually wear down and begin to lose their beautiful white appearance over Teeth Whiteningtime.

At the office of Richard G. Mark, DDS, patients with poorly colored teeth can experience lasting teeth whitening solutions. Dr. Mark offers the highest quality on-site teeth-whitening dental procedures in the Independence, MO, area, giving his patients dramatic results resulting in teeth that are a full three to eight shades brighter in just one hour.

Professional teeth whitening is faster and safer than over-the-counter whitening options, which often carry ingredients that can actually wear down your teeth's outer layer (enamel) rather than bring back its former white glory. In fact, teeth whitening procedures offered by people outside of certified dental offices can be very dangerous for the long-term well-being of your teeth, potentially damaging them, while not even succeeding in making them whiter than they were before.

In-Office Whitening

Dr. Mark's teeth whitening techniques employ the safest, most effective whitening solutions on the market. The procedure will generally take no more than an hour, and utilizes a specially formulated whitening gel that will whiten your smile almost instantly.

Take-Home Whitening

While also effective, take-home whitening options take longer to whiten your teeth to their desired shade. Also, you'll be playing a greater role in their success, so it is important you where the whitening trays as instructed. This technique involves two thin, flexible plastic mouth trays that are specially designed for you being made from a custom mold Dr. Mark created of your mouth. You'll be in charge of filling these trays with professional whitening gel and then fastening them over your teeth for an hour at a time. You will be in control of the level of whitening you achieve.
