Things to Consider When Looking for a Cosmetic Dentist

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

dentistry-gorgeous-smilesWould you go to a motorcycle mechanic to get your car fixed? The answer is probably not. When you have a tooth that is in the front of your mouth that needs dental work, it is very important to get the right dentist who has a lot of experience with prominent cosmetic dental cases. Here are some examples of what can go wrong if you don’t choose an experienced cosmetic dentist.

Shading: It’s important to select the right color of porcelain veneer or dental crown to make sure that it matches the rest of the teeth. Ultimately, it is the dentist’s responsibility to get it right. This is why it is important to pick an office with abundant experience in cosmetic dentistry.

Staining: There are times when simple teeth bleaching will not take away the stains in your teeth. This can sometimes require more extensive work with a combination of teeth whitening and dental veneers.

Laboratory: It’s important to choose an office that does not try to cut costs with lower laboratory fees. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull work very closely with a laboratory that produces high quality porcelain to give you a natural appearance.

Whatever the concern you may have with your mouth, there is usually a universal consensus—it should look great and natural when it is finished. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull are passionate about helping our patients enjoy healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. If you would like to know more about improving your smile in the Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker or Rockford, MI area, give us a call at 616-784-2377.

perfect smile in Comstock Park

What does it take to really change the way you look? Hours upon hours at the gym? Expensive trips to the most cutting-edge salon in the Comstock Park area? What about a routine trip to your dentist?

You may not love going to the dentist, but you will love the results when they help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure with dramatic results that never cease to impress.

Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:

  1. Zoom whitening done in-office. Sometimes called chair-side bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.
  2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home it is closely monitored by our office to receive the best results.
  3. Kor whitening is a combination of home whitening and a one time in office whitening for optimal results.


If you would like to hear more about options to restore your smile, such as cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation today.

Lighten Up In Rockford MI

Teeth Whitening In Rockford MI

Hello! Today’s dental article is for Belmont, Cedar Springs, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI residents with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Stewart & Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.

Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. Stewart & Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.

Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate Comstock Park dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many Rockford, MI patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.

In addition to teeth whitening, we provide a full menu of cosmetic dental procedures at our Comstock Park office. With porcelain veneers, you can straighten and correct the shape of your teeth in addition to brightening the color. If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant may be the solution. Call 616-827-7019 for a dental implant or smile design consultation.

If you are embarrassed by a less-than-sparkling smile, let the team of dental professionals at Stewart & Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry help you lighten up.

All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

Comstock Park Tooth Bleaching

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in Grand Rapids depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola and nicotine.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid foods and beverages that cause stain, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair and wrinkles a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for Comstock Park, Belmont, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford MI residents.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening from Dr. Bruce Stewart and Dr. Eric Hull.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Stewart and Hull Dentistry at 616-827-7019. We have treated many Comstock Park, Belmont, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford MI clients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.  Patients can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed.  Teens  and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with tooth bleaching.

Stewart & Hull Aesthetic & General Dentistry is the cosmetic dental specialist in Comstock Park. Discover why hundreds of local MI families trust us with their smiles.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Categories: Teeth Whitening

Professional Teeth Whitening at Stewart & Hull 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.

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. If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first decide which method to use. At Stewart & Hull, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our clients. To schedule a free consultation to talk about teeth whitening or any other dental procedure, call 616-827-7019.

At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with whitening solution. It takes 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Brush-on teeth gels and whitening strips take up to 30 days to achieve noticeable results. Not only is whitening toothpaste abrasive, 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.

All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers or bonding, it is important to talk to your dentist before choosing a whitening method.

We do smile makeovers!
