One of the easiest ways to enhance your smile cosmetically is through teeth whitening from Eric Hull DDS Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park MI. Our whitening process consists of simple, non-invasive methods that radically improve your overall appearance. It is not merely a physical improvement, either. This technology has the potential to boost your confidence and reinvigorate your social life.
Before beginning the procedure we recommend that you meet with our team for a consultation. This will help us determine the extent of any staining or discoloration, as well as which whitening method is best for you. We can also suggest dietary and lifestyle changes that can greatly benefit your dental health.
We can also discuss other aspects of your smile that you might want to improve. After all, whitening is merely one of our cosmetic dentistry options. When paired with other treatments, like porcelain veneers or crowns, it can take your transformation to a whole new level.
Depending on the whitening technique chosen, your smile can be brightened by three to eight shades in just an hour. An in-office procedure produces a degree of lightening that cannot be achieved with a grocery store product. During your treatment, your dentist may apply a coating to protect your gums and roots while the bleaching agent is applied. A laser is then used to harden the substance.
An alternative technique is to have your dentist prescribe a take-home kit. These kits are customized for each patient. First a mold is made of your teeth. Using the mold, the lab team creates trays to hold the bleach. While this method may take longer, it is more affordable and more convenient. Teeth whitening results from either method can last from six months to two years.
