Is your otherwise beautiful smile affected by yellowness and stains? Do you hesitate to smile freely in public due to discoloration of your teeth? At the office of Midwest Family Dental Care, we want you to have a sparkling, pearly white smile, and we can help you achieve this with our state-of-the-art, professional teeth whitening treatments.
A number of factors соntributе tо thе grаduаl discoloration of our tееth. Some of these include aging, tоbассо uѕе, соffее, red wine, and even hereditary fасtоrѕ. Before suggesting whitening treatments, we will carefully evaluate the cause of stains on your teeth. In case the discoloration is being caused by an oral health issue such as gum disease or root canal infection, we will recommend treatment accordingly.
Our high-quality, in-house whitening technique is suited for those who are looking for quick, beautiful results. We will begin by covering your roots and gums with a barrier. A retractor is placed to hold your cheeks and lips away from the teeth. A professional strength whitening gel is then applied to the teeth. Once the gel is removed, you will notice immediate results. Professional-strength whitening gels contain an active ingredient that penetrates the enamel of your teeth to reach the discolored molecules. Oxygen from the whitening agent in the gel reacts with the discolored molecules of the teeth, causing breakage of bonds that hold them together.
Professional tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures because it gives you dramatic results for your smile in a single appointment. If you’re not very happy with the current color of your teeth when you smile, call the office of Midwest Family Dental Care at (616) 229-0269. Our practice has convenient locations in Grand Rapids, Jenison and Kalamazoo, Michigan.
