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.
