West Bloomfield area dentist explains the teeth whitening procedure
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Richard S. Bernstein, DDS believes in providing his patients with a wide selection of treatments that are far more effective than over-the-counter whitening kits, which provide subpar results. His practice provides several solutions, including:
- In-office power bleaching
- At-home whitening kits
- Whitening pens
In-Office Power BleachingDuring a power bleaching session, patients start with a professional cleaning to remove tartar and plaque from the surfaces of the teeth and gums before bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and activated with a specialized light. This jump-starts the ingredients in the bleaching gel that break up stains.
At-Home Whitening KitsPatients can use these custom-made whitening kits in the comfort of their own home to rejuvenate their smiles. Impressions are used to create special whitening trays and patients use professional-grade whitening gel to whiten once a day for several weeks. Results are gradual and long lasting, and this method is often desired by patients who want more control over the whitening process and who want to maintain their results for the long term.
