Welcome to the Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry dental blog, Royal Oak! I am Dr. Steven Gustafson. Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening.
Unfortunately, our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but I see staining on young patients, as well.
Detroit area residents of all ages want whiter teeth.
To protect from staining, it is important to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.
Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpaste can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry is your brilliant solution!
If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns, or bondings.
In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry and can produce outstanding results over time.
