Farmington Hills, MI area dentist answers, what is teeth whitening?
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Teeth whitening is a process used to lighten the shade of the tooth enamel using a bleaching agent. While patients may brush and floss their teeth regularly, they may still experience discoloration of the enamel due to food and drink, aging, medication, or even genetics. Patients can transform their smile with teeth whitening treatments.
Although most drug stores have an entire aisle of products dedicated to whitening the teeth, many patients who have tried these treatments have found that the results are far from amazing. Many products produce subpar results, and many patients complain of sensitivity of their teeth after using them. Toothpastes, strips, and trays are all available through the local stores, but these over-the-counter solutions do not compare to professional-grade whitening products. Dr. Bernstein provides patients with several solutions for brightening their smiles:
In-Office Teeth WhiteningUsing the Zoom! whitening system, patients can see dramatic improvement in about an hour. The Zoom! whitening system was create to allow patients to enjoy fast, easy whitening through a trusted dentist. This procedure can be done at any time and it can provide amazing results for patients who need immediate whitening for a special occasion, or for those who do not want to wait to see results.
Take-Home WhiteningWhitening at home is just as effective as in-office whitening. However, the process takes a few weeks before patients achieve the same results. This process allows patients more control over their whitening process and gives them gradual improvements each day.
Whitening AccessoriesDr. Bernstein also offers several whitening accessories, including the Chic-Flic device and whitening pens. They can both be used to brighten on the go in-between regular treatments, giving patients a myriad of opportunities to boost the brilliance of their natural smile. Patients can use these between in-office or take-home whitening services for even more enhanced results.
