West Bloomfield area dentist explains the teeth whitening procedure

Over the course of time, the teeth are exposed to many elements. Although we may have had bright, white smiles when we were younger, staining and discoloration lead to a smile that looks dull and lifeless. Patients in the West Bloomfield area who are seeking methods of brightening their smiles in an affordable yet effective manner may want to speak to Richard S. Bernstein, DDS about the many teeth whitening procedures available through his practice.

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
The procedure necessary for each varies.

In-Office Power Bleaching

During 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 Kits

Patients 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.
