All staff members are very nice. I came in after having neck surgery. Range of motion wasn’t normal for me. They worked on it to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Will be going back again.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Teeth Whitening FAQsteeth whitening FAQs

As a preferred general, restorative and cosmetic dentist in Springfield, MO Chesterfield Family Dental is happy to offer a full menu of treatment options. Whether it is getting your regular cleaning or a smile makeover, we have the choices available. As one of the final, finishing touches on your smile, we suggest tooth whitening. These teeth whitening FAQs will explain why we recommend the procedure and how easy and effective it will be.

Simple Teeth Whitening FAQs

Doesn’t It Hurt?

This is one of the most common teeth whitening FAQs our cosmetic dentist and team hears. It is based in outdated fact and has to do with dental offices using more potent formulas than was advisable. This occurred more than a decade ago, and today’s formulations are weaker and often enhanced through the use of special lights that activate them and allow them to do their work very quickly. There is no pain, and if your tooth whitening is likely to increase dental sensitivity, our team will have toothpastes and other methods for eliminating even that slight discomfort.

Will It Last Forever?

Another of the common questions, this has an interesting answer. Why? Simply because the answer varies from person to person. Will you be cutting back or eliminating staining drinks like tea or coffee after treatment? Will you stop smoking? Do you intend to do touch up treatments at home? What sort of toothpaste do you use? These all have an impact on the results and the longevity of your whitening, and our cosmetic dentistry team can help you discover the right answer for you.

Is an Over the Counter Product the Same?

No, as a professional dental office the products we use are far more potent and will be applied carefully by an expert. As indicated, your whitening may effectively lighten your teeth by several shades in a single sitting because the compound is activated with special lights. None of the drug store or department store options can deliver such rapid and long lasting results.

How Often Is It Done?

This too varies, and we can easily book your whitening to coincide with annual or even twice annual cleanings if you wish your smile to reflect your optimal oral health.

Happy Patients

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
