Our teeth often turn yellow or gray as we age. The things we eat and drink continually such as colored sodas, coffee and red wine contribute to the staining. Most of us are aware that smoking is not only bad for your lungs; it is an enemy to beautiful teeth. A brilliant smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional whitening of teeth can dramatically improve your overall appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.
If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first decide which method to use. At Stewart & Hull Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our clients. To schedule a free consultation to talk about teeth whitening or any other dental procedure, please call 616-784-2377.
At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with professional whitening solution. It takes approximately 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Tooth whitening toothpaste is not only abrasive but it may be damaging to the enamel surface. Whitening toothpaste may lighten superficial stains but often provides little or no change in appearance of teeth.
Professional teeth whitening procedures performed by a dental professional achieve dramatic results that last far longer than other treatments.
If you have crowns, porcelain veneers or bonding, it is important to talk to your dentist before choosing a whitening method.
