Teeth Whitening

Wyoming, Michigan

At Craft Dentistry, we are dedicated to delivering beautiful, healthy smiles. We are pleased to offer a range of cosmetic dentistry options, including teeth whitening, to erase teeth stains and restore your smile’s sparkle. Our professional treatments provide a safe and effective solution to transform your smile and boost your self-confidence.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening involves the use of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel to break tooth stains and discoloration, leaving you with a dazzling smile. It is highly effective at brightening teeth discolored due to the natural aging process, poor oral hygiene practices, using tobacco products, and consuming dark foods and drinks like coffee, tea, berries, and red wine.

Teeth whitening is ideal for yellowish stains resulting from dark foods and beverages, smoking, and using tobacco products. It may not work well for teeth discolored due to trauma or certain medications, such as tetracycline, and does not lift stains off tooth-colored dental restorations, such as fillings, crowns, or bridges. If you are not a candidate for our professional whitening treatments, Dr. Szymanski may recommend a different cosmetic dentistry solution, such as dental bonding or veneers.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Options

Numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products promise Hollywood-worthy smiles. These include whitening strips, trays, and do-it-yourself teeth whitening kits. There are also whitening toothpaste containing mild abrasives that remove surface stains.

While some home teeth whitening products may show results, many will disappoint. Moreover, some can cause serious side effects, including tooth sensitivity or, worse yet, damage to the gum tissues and tooth enamel. It is advisable to trust an experienced dental professional for safe and effective teeth whitening treatments.

At-Home Professional Whitening

We are pleased to offer safe and effective home teeth whitening treatments tailored to your smile’s unique specifications. Each kit includes custom trays created from impressions of your teeth, professional-strength hydrogen or carbamide peroxide whitening gel, and instructions for home bleaching. Simply wear your custom trays as instructed until you restore your smile’s sparkle. Once you achieve your desired shade, occasional touch-ups will maintain your stunning results.

Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?

Teeth whitening under the care of an experienced provider is considered one of the safest cosmetic dentistry treatments. Some people report sensitive teeth after treatment, but the common side effect usually resolves soon after. Most safety concerns associated with teeth whitening result from using over-the-counter or do-it-yourself whitening kits. It is important to consult with a dentist before any teeth whitening treatment to safeguard your teeth and gums.
