Show off your smile this summer!

Whether you jet off to the beach, a wedding, a national park tour, or a family vacation this summer, this time of year is often associated with people feeling more insecure about their smile. As you take those photos to share with your friends and family, are you feeling the same way? Well, you’re not alone!

How can I easily improve my smile?

Have you noticed that your teeth aren’t as white as they used to be, or not as white as you would like? There are many reasons why your teeth may darken or become stained, some of which include:

  • Food and drink—coffee, tea, soda, wine

  • Smoking/tobacco use

  • Poor dental hygiene

  • Prescription medications

Teeth whitening is often the easiest and cheapest option to really make your smile sparkle!

What is the process for professional teeth whitening?

There are many different kinds of teeth whitening options on the market today. What Dr. Barb McClatchie has found to be the safest and most effective method is Opalescence PF. Opalescence PF is a tray that is custom fit for your smile. These trays are then worn for a minimum of 15 minutes per day—length is dependent on your personal needs, and treatment details will be provided by your care team.



Professional-level teeth whitening can now be done in the comfort of your own home. Having a brighter smile improves your appearance and increases self-confidence. This method is also certified vegan, gluten free, and kosher.

How to fix sensitivity from teeth whitening?

Compared to many other treatments on the market, this product contains potassium nitrate and fluoride for your added comfort. This will significantly reduce any sensitivity from teeth whitening. If you are still experiencing any sensitivity, there are many options, including desensitizing gel, and sensitivity relief toothpaste to help ease any discomfort.
