Teeth Whitening | Brentwood TN
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Like the rest of you most likely, I dislike going to the dentist... However, Dr. Poss is the most loving and gentle Doctor I have experienced in my 57 years!!! He explains everything he is doing every step of the way. His kind and gentle nature is soothing and comforting. The dental work is superior and his abilities are absolutely high end dentistry.

Patient Review from Ashley M
The office has such a serene atmosphere and the staff were some of the friendliest and personable people I have met. Dr. Poss did such an amazing job on my smile and explained everything clearly to me so that I was comfortable. I went in fearing the dentist and I left feeling a huge sigh of relief. I am very grateful that Dr. Poss was able to completely fix my smile and make my teeth beautiful.

Patient Review from Josh D
For years I have been very self-conscious about my smile, hating every time I would look into the mirror. I had an accident that caused my front teeth to be busted almost completely out and the dental work was old and cracking. It was time for a change but veneer work was scary. That is where Dr. Poss and his staff LITERALLY changed my life! I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Poss for his veneer work and it has been the best decision of my entire life! The procedure was simple and the staff made my visit very comfortable. I panic with any type of dental work, but I have to say, Dr. Poss made dental work seem like a walk in the park. I know have my confidence back and I find myself smiling non-stop! And not to mention the daily compliments I get on my "perfect teeth" or "perfect smile" as most state! And Casandra, the hygienist, is hands down the best in the business in Nashville! Very gentle and very educational! She makes you look forward to your 6 month cleanings! Dr. Poss and team, I cannot thank you enough for giving me my old self back! You have changed my life in so many ways and I will forever be grateful for that! If you need ANY type of work performed, Poss Dental Designs is the ONLY place to go!

Patient Review from Jesse A
After moving to Nashville, choosing a new dentist was an important decision. Friends I've made here recommended Dr. Poss so I decided to finally make an appointment to have my chipped bonding replaced with permanent veneers. I can't say enough good things about the quality of my experience here. Every team member was friendly and accommodating. The most first class dental experience I've ever had. Thank you Dr. Poss!

Patient Review from Cladutte L
Eleven years ago I was listening to Phil Valentine’s talk radio program in Brentwood, TN, and he introduced me to Dr. Stephen Poss. When I met Dr. Poss and his staff, I was immediately impressed with their warmth and professional expertise. He became one of my heroes after designing veneers for me. Their color matched my teeth perfectly, and I felt a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem. As a middle school teacher, I even seem to have more fun with my students, and class reunions became more exciting. I’m now enjoying my retirement in East TN, but I drive back to Nashville every six months to see Dr. Poss. I’m thankful to have a dentist who is so skilled that he teaches other dentists and yet cares about his patients as he would a family member. I always dreaded going to the dentist until I started using Dr. Poss. What a joy it is to know my future dental needs will be met with the best care possible!
