Gentle Portland Teeth Whitening

Are you looking for a local cosmetic dentist with extensive experience in teeth whitening? Portland whitening dentist Edward Ward, D.M.D., has been performing these procedures for years, and is highly regarded for his professional manner and dental excellence. At Interstate Dental Clinic we can assure you that your teeth bleaching process will be swift, simple and effective. There are several tooth whitening options that you can choose from, and our experienced team will take the time to find the solution that will work for you. The results will astound you, and you won't believe how quickly you can go from dull to dazzling.

The procedure is simple and only takes a short period of time to administer. A teeth whitener solution is gently painted onto the teeth. This has the effect of bleaching the teeth to a lighter, brighter color. And in contrast to do-it-yourself treatments, this procedure has a very high success rate and a very low incidence of side effects.

If you're looking for white teeth, call us today at (503) 285-5307. Or fill out our online form for easy scheduling. We have several payment options and we're available when it's convenient for you.
