Teeth whitening from your dentist in Seymour, IN, can give you the smile you deserve.

If you want a whiter, brighter smile, chances are you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening products. They may work for some people, but wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a teeth whitening treatment that lasts? Well, now you can. You need professional teeth whitening!

Dr. Matthew Pierce, Dr. Haley Doose, and Dr. Douglas Gardner of Jackson County Dental in Seymour, IN, offer comprehensive dental care, including professional teeth whitening to give you the smile you deserve.

Professional teeth whitening offers several important advantages you need to know about. Consider that professional teeth whitening is:

  • Effective, because you can brighten your smile up to 8 shades. Over-the-counter products offer only the bare minimum when it comes to whitening.
  • Long-lasting, because your whitening results can last up to 5 years. Over-the-counter products may only last a few months.
  • Safe, because all of the products and methods used in professional teeth whitening are tested and approved by the American Dental Association. Over-the-counter products may contain harsh chemicals and abrasive agents which can make your teeth sensitive.
  • Quick, because the in-office whitening treatment takes only about an hour. Over-the-counter treatments can take weeks to see an effect.

At Jackson County Dental, you can choose from two effective professional teeth whitening treatments:

  • The in-office treatment, which is the fast way to a bright, beautiful smile. This treatment takes only about an hour to see dramatic results. It’s an excellent choice for your busy schedule.
  • The take-home whitening kit, which can be done in the comfort and convenience of your home. This is a great choice if you want to whiten at your own pace.

At Jackson County Dental, Dr. Matthew Pierce, Dr. Haley Doose, and Dr. Douglas Gardner, your dentists in Seymour, IN, provide comprehensive dental care for the whole family. Your dentists recommend preventative appointments twice a year to protect your smile from tooth decay and gum disease.

Preventative Care

Regular professional teeth cleaning appointments are the basis of preventative care for everyone in the family. When plaque is not removed by regular brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar. Tartar cannot be brushed away and must be removed by a dental professional. When plaque and tartar build up on your teeth, the bacteria irritate the gums and they start to pull away from the teeth.

Gum disease can lead to tooth loss if left untreated, so it's best to be examined at least twice a year for signs of gum disease by your dentist in Seymour, IN. Even when you schedule regular dental visits, it's important to keep up a great oral hygiene routine at home. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. If you have a history of cavities you may want to add a fluoride mouth rinse to your routine.

General Dentistry

We encourage all patients to keep up with regular dental visits for preventative care, but we're here when you need help with your smile, too. We provide all general dentistry services and can help when you have an emergency like a chip or a cracked tooth. When you need complete tooth replacements, we offer dentures and dental implants. You can also see us when you have cosmetic concerns about your smile for our cosmetic services including teeth whitening and veneers.

Dr. Pierce, Dr. Doose, and Dr. Gardner of Jackson County Dental are your reliable dentists in Seymour, IN. We help keep your mouths healthy and smiles beautiful! Contact us for an appointment in Seymour, IN, at 812-522-8608.
