Welcome to the Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry dental blog, Comstock Park! Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening.
Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but we see staining on young patients, as well. Residents of Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI all want whiter teeth.
To protect from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.
Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, and whitening mouthwashes can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry is your brilliant solution!
If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns or bondings.
In-office teeth whitening takes about 1 ½ hours and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry and can produce marvelous results over time.
