Get a brighter and more radiant smile thanks to professional teeth whitening.
Are over-the-counter whitening kits and toothpastes just not cutting it when it comes to removing those yellow stains from your teeth? If so, then you might need something a bit more effective in order to see results. Our Portage, MI, cosmetic dentists Dr. David Johnson and Dr. Jared Hector have helped transform smiles with the help of in-office whitening and now you can find out whether this treatment option is right for you.
How do dental stains happen?
Tooth enamel is porous, which means that they absorb color from the foods and drinks we consume. Therefore, those who consume red wine, coffee, tea and berries or smoke are more likely to notice dull, yellowing teeth.
While using a whitening toothpaste every day may help to slow the development of stains, it won’t be able to remove these darker stains. Professional teeth whitening gel is specially formulated to penetrate the outer surface of the teeth to break up these stains.
What happens during professional whitening?
If you decide to get in-office teeth whitening then you can kick back and relax in our dental chair while our cosmetic dentists help you achieve a brighter smile. Teeth whitening is non-invasive and usually takes no more than one hour. Plus, most patients will get the results they want after just one whitening session.
If you decide that you would rather whiten your teeth on your own time, then talk to us about our at-home professional whitening system. In this case, custom-fitted trays will deliver whitening gel to every angle of your teeth to help you achieve a whiter smile over time.
Which whitening treatment is right for me?
Are you trying to figure out whether to let our dentist do all the work or whether at-home whitening might be a better approach? Well, here are some things to consider before deciding,
In-office whitening provides almost instant results. If you need to get results quickly before a special occasion or important event then in-office whitening is the fastest way to get a whiter smile. Those on a time crunch may want to consider chairside whitening.
At-home whitening is less expensive. If you aren’t on a time crunch and your goal is to save some money while getting a whiter smile then at-home whitening may be a more budget-friendly option. Of course, you’ll also need to follow the instructions and wear your trays every day in order to see results. If you don’t think you’ll be able to commit to wearing your whitening trays daily then in-office whitening might be a better approach.
