If your teeth have become darker, duller, or discolored and you would like to see a change in tooth color, there are various whitening options you can choose. Dr. Don Wyatt and our team offer a review of different teeth whitening treatments to help you make an informed choice.

Whitening agents contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide that break down stains so they appear less visible, but each method includes its own benefits and level of efficacy.

Your local drugstore or supermarket offers whitening toothpaste that includes abrasives to reduce stains and whiten teeth. The upside of these products is that they are easy to find (just look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on the box) and inexpensive. However, they can only remove minor stains on the tooth enamel and don’t really affect the color of the tooth.

Today's Dental Care offers chairside bleaching, an in-office service performed in a single visit. While you relax in the dental chair, Dr. Don Wyatt applies bleaching solution to your teeth to remove stains and whiten the color. This option is the most powerful tooth whitening treatment available.

If you do not want to sit at the dentist’s office, we can also provide you with a customized at-home teeth whitening kit that includes a gel you pour into a tray. You then wear the tray over your teeth within the comfort of your own home for a certain amount of time.


A whiter smile is within your grasp, and our team at Today's Dental Care is happy to help you achieve that goal! Please call our office at 208-324-8861 if you have any questions about teeth whitening or would like to learn more about your options for teeth whitening in Jerome, Idaho.
