Teeth Whitening Dentist Grand Rapids

Have you not gotten the results you want with whitening toothpaste, strips, and over-the-counter trays?

It may be time to schedule an appointment with our Grand Rapids dentists for your next progression checkup.

Our cosmetic dentists will be able to whiten stained, dull, or discolored teeth so you can be confident with your radiant smile.

Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

Getting your teeth professionally whitened by our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentists is effective, yet safe. We will custom make bleaching trays so you can bleach your teeth in the privacy of your home on your schedule. Because the custom trays last many years, you will only need to purchase additional bleaching gel when you want to whiten and brighten your teeth.

Unlike over-the-counter products, getting your teeth whitened by a dentist will make your teeth become several shades whiter. Our products contain a higher percentage of whitener than anything you can purchase in a store.

Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Certain foods and beverages can stain teeth over time. For example, drinking coffee or tea on a regular basis can give you a dull smile. Teeth whitening in our office will only last so long if you have developed eating habits that stain your teeth. If you can’t live without coffee or tea, try reducing how much you drink. If your teeth are exposed to staining foods on a regular basis, your enamel will eventually weaken and absorb stains easier.

If your diet isn’t causing tooth discoloration, our dentists will look to see if you have a history of traumatic oral injuries or are on any medications that could affect tooth color. Too much fluoride in your diet (fluorosis) can also cause your enamel to look mottled.

Donald VanderLinde DDS and Alexandra Dodds DDS both strive to help patients achieve their best smiles. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment for professional teeth whitening, call our Grand Rapids family dentists at (616) 245-3205.
