It’s a fact that as we get older, our bodies change. Often, age begins to show in our faces first. Wrinkles, age spots, and discolored teeth are all part of the aging process.
If you smoke, drink wine, tea, or coffee, or eat staining foods, it’s likely that your teeth may have discolored even more. I’m Dr. Brad Greenfield, a general and cosmetic dentist in Lake Orion, Michigan, and I can help you whiten your teeth and make you look 10 years younger.
Believe it or not, teeth whitening methods have been around since the 1700s, and, today, it is the most frequently requested cosmetic dental procedure. I offer two, professional-grade teeth whitening options in my office: Zoom! Whitening and an at-home whitening system.
Zoom! Whitening is the leader in chair side dental whitening systems. With a strong gel and soft light, stains are lifted from your teeth in just an hour! I recommend this procedure for patients who want fast results. Usually, your teeth will continue to lighten for several days following the procedure. You can literally wake up with whiter teeth than you had when you went to bed the night before!
Home whitening offers a convenient way to progressively remove stains from your teeth. Generally, a full treatment takes about two weeks to complete, but it all depends on how diligently you wear your custom-fitted bleaching trays. For most of my patients, I recommend wearing the trays for about an hour every evening. If you wear your trays as directed, you’ll notice dramatically whiter teeth.
Teeth whitening procedures are so popular because they work. To brighten your smile and make your entire face look years younger, I invite you to make an appointment at Lake Orion Family Dentistry.
