During your visit, we will perform an exam to determine if you are a candidate for dental whitening. Your dentist will check the type of discoloration and tooth stains and your oral health overall. Professional bleaching treatment can reduce stains caused by foods and drinks. However, if the discolored enamel is due to medications or trauma, teeth whitening will not work. These types of tooth stains will need to be concealed with crowns or veneers.
At your appointment for professional whitening at our Shelby Township dental office, your dentist will first apply the whitening agent to your teeth. Next, a curing light is used to activate the bleaching gel. This process will last for 15 minutes. After the gel is removed and the whitening process gets repeated 1–2 more times.
Some William G. Ziecina D.D.S., P.C. patients want to whiten their teeth at their leisure. For this purpose, we offer at-home teeth whitening kits. Although it will take longer to achieve the desired results, this approach is more convenient for some folks. For these patients, we provide custom-made bleaching trays and whitening gel. In this process, the bleaching agent is added to the tray. Then, the tray is worn every day for about 30 minutes. It should take about two weeks to complete the treatment. However, your teeth will be noticeably whiter in a few days.
