whiteningTeeth Whitening and Bleaching

Dr. Schilt and Dr. Welch and the team at McKenzie River Dental offer a convenient and fast way to whiten your smile. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with the simple teeth whitening procedure provided by McKenzie River Dental. Depending on your preference, you can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower.

We will provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear trays, which removes stains from the enamel of your teeth. Once your teeth reach your preferred brightness, only occasional treatments are needed to maintain your new smile.


Ultra thin, cosmetic, composite veneers can be used to change the shape, color and size of the teeth. Composite veneers can be completed in one visit at McKenzie River Dental, immediately improving your smile. Porcelain veneers are slightly stronger and less likely to stain, with more options for shading. These are made in a lab and require two visits.

Tooth Bonding

Bonding is a resin that is used in the front or back teeth to restore decayed teeth, lighten stains, close minor gaps or correct crooked teeth. A tooth is prepared through light etching on its surface, and a bonding resin is placed on top. The tooth is bonded, sculpted, colored and shaped to improve your smile. Once cured with a high-intensity curing light, the surface is polished.

Tooth bonding is convenient, often completed in one visit to McKenzie River Dental, and can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth.
