Are your teeth discolored or stained? If you wish for a brighter, whiter smile, Dr. McKinley and Dr. Holloway may recommend teeth whitening in Shelby Township, Michigan. Our dentists offer in-office whitening and at-home whitening.
With in-office whitening, our dentists will place the whitening product directly on your teeth. Using heat, a special light, or a laser, our dentists will enhance the bleaching results. In-office whitening is the quickest way to whiten your teeth. Patients can see results in just one, 30 to 60 minute treatment. However, to reach the desired level of whitening, several treatments may be needed.
Our dentists will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel whitening solution if you choose at-home whitening. Wear the tray and bleaching solution as prescribed by our dentists. Usually, treatment time is for several hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.
The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. Patients who consume foods and beverages that can stain their teeth may see the effects of teeth whitening begin to fade in as little as a month. However, if you avoid food and drink that will stain your teeth, you may sustain your bright smile for a year or longer.
