Bleaching & Teeth Whitening

After years of eating and drinking, your teeth may start looking a little discolored. Especially if you drink too much coffee or smoke cigarettes, your teeth might become stained or yellow. A discolored or stained smile can diminish confidence and make you feel self-conscious. At Hillcrest Dental, we can brighten your smile with teeth whitening or bleaching.

According to the FDA, teeth whitening restores your natural tooth color while bleaching makes your teeth whiter than your natural color. Teeth whitening may be right for you if your teeth are a bit discolored and you want to restore them to their former appearance. Bleaching, on the other hand, may be most ideal for heavily-stained teeth or if you want to make a strong first impression with a dazzling smile.

Whitening and bleaching are both very common, quick, and pain-free dental treatments that can truly transform your smile. Before you use bleaching or whitening, you can come in for a free consultation to determine which option is right for you and hear previous patient success stories and testimonials. Our highly-skilled dentists will assess your current oral health and whiteness goals to help you pick a treatment that will give you the beautiful results you desire. When you use bleaching services, our team will recommend the appropriate materials, techniques, and delivery systems that provide the best solution.

At Hillcrest Dental, we want to help you get the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Our team of expert and compassionate dentists will listen to your oral hygiene goals and organize a treatment plan that will transform your smile. You will always be as comfortable as possible during your whitening or bleaching session in our relaxing atmosphere.

  • "I am very pleased with how my appointment went yesterday. Everyone was really friendly. They explained everything to me about the procedure and stayed late to assure I was comfortable with the work I had done. Dr Ryan Buckwalter and his assistants were awesome. I highly recommend them for any dental work. Thank you."

  • "I was having toothache pain in my lower jaw. I called the next day to make an appointment and was given an appointment time for the very next day. I saw Dr. Ryan, who is knowledgeable, caring and has great people skills with his patients. I made another appointment to come back and have the work done."

  • “Dr. Buckwalter and his assistant did a wonderful job with our 8 year old today. While they were busy talking teeth, my 3 year old was enjoying his new lip balm and balloon! Finished up with a treat from Starbucks with our gift card. So glad our kiddos don’t fear the dentist. More like they want to keep stopping in."
