Enhance your smile with professional teeth whitening in Sterling Heights
Bright, white teeth give you confidence and convey health and wellness to everyone you meet. Beverages such as tea, coffee, and red wine and deeply pigmented foods such as tomato sauce can stain or dull your teeth over time, but fortunately, professional teeth whitening is highly effective in teeth discoloration removal. At Laser Dental Associates in Sterling Heights, MI, the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques are used to achieve the results you want in the least amount of time possible.
How does teeth stain removal work?
Professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist can give you the bright white smile you are seeking in a fairly short amount of time and works better than over-the-counter whitening treatments you might find at the grocery store or pharmacy. With professional-grade products, you can achieve your sparkling smile more comfortably and effectively than with ill-fitting generic trays you can buy at the store.
The dentist uses a hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide solution to perform the teeth whitening process. Depending on whether you choose in-office or at-home treatment, the solution is applied to your teeth either in the office by the dentist or with custom-fitted trays that you use for a specific amount of time each day at home. Treatments in the office typically require the use of a specialized light that is placed on your teeth in 15 to 30-minute increments after the bleaching solution is applied.
How do I keep my teeth white after treatment?
The teeth stain removal treatment will last the longest if you take these measures at home:
- Avoid or limit your consumption of highly pigmented foods or beverages such as coffee, tea, mustard, and beets
- Avoid smoking or chewing tobacco
- Brush your teeth after every meal, or at least twice per day, and floss every day
