Why you should choose a dentist for teeth whitening: the value of professional treatment in Farmington Hills


Why You Should Choose a Dentist for Teeth Whitening: The Value of Professional Treatment in Farmington Hills Area
For teeth whitening that really works, you’ve come to the right place. Trusting the health and appearance of your smile to a dental professional makes all the difference. And, when you choose professional teeth whitening in Farmington Hills at the office of Richard Bernstein, D.D.S., you also benefit from the skill and training of Michigan’s only American Society for Dental Aesthetics accredited dentist. Dr. Bernstein has uniquely exceptional qualifications that are applied to “makeover” your smile. He can dramatically transform your appearance with whitening treatments at our office or designed to be applied at home. Alternately, these treatments may be combined with other procedures to redesign your smile completely.

The professional dentistry difference

Generally, teeth whitening has a bad reputation. So many products may claim to whiten your teeth, yet they fail to live up to their lofty promises. Professional dentists like Dr. Bernstein have access to bleaching gels that are formulated with powerful ingredients. These peroxide-based ingredients are also present at sufficient concentrations to visibly lighten your teeth. We select products that are formulated to minimize sensitivity. In addition to a dentist’s access to professional products that are proven to remove stains, you also benefit from professional expertise throughout the treatment. Dr. Bernstein assures your safety, comfort, natural-looking, and attractive results by:

  • Examining your teeth before recommending appropriate treatment
  • Assuring that teeth and gums are healthy - whitening treatments can make existing decay and periodontal disease worse.
  • Discussing alternative treatments that might be best for your health and situation – for instance, dental restorations such as crowns aren’t responsive to whitening treatment. Also, some types of deep or intrinsic discoloration resist bleaching gels. Veneers to cover up or to disguise stained teeth may be a more appropriate option for you.
  • Adjusting the strength of the gel, the level of whitening, and other facets of treatment to your unique goals and needs – the ability to customize every aspect of treatment supports a pleasant and comfortable experience. It assures you’re happy with the look of your teeth post-treatment.
Safeguards are also in place during treatment. Dr. Bernstein assures the surrounding tissues are protected from the gel by covering them before applying the light-accelerated whitening formulation. By isolating the teeth, he also assures they are whitened evenly. In addition to Philips Zoom in-office whitening, we offer Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite take-home whitening. Using impressions of your teeth, a tray is made to deliver the whitening gel to your teeth. Since the tray is made for your mouth, it won’t rub up against the inside of your cheeks and other delicate tissues. Custom trays also support even and attractive results. We’ll instruct on how to wear and care for the trays to get gradually whiter teeth.

You can also trust that any other products we may recommend to whiten on a budget or to prolong the results from treatment are safe and clinically proven to work. As dental professionals, we’re best equipped to discuss ways that your diet and hygiene can also help to keep your teeth looking a healthy and youthful shade.
