Even if lattes and gourmet coffee aren’t part of your morning routine, you might look in the mirror only to discover that your smile has gotten a little drab in recent years. Did you know that stained teeth are a natural part of aging? Even if you avoid habits like tobacco, red wine, and black tea, your teeth still absorb color from the foods you eat.

Some of the most common culprits are some of the healthiest foods around! Berries, leafy greens, and spices like curry all leave staining residue behind.

Fortunately, a white smile is within reach when you contact your dentist. Our Royal Oak, MI dental office offers two great solutions for a whiter smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an affordable and fast way to boost your natural tooth color and regain that white dazzle of your youth.

For patients who want fast results, we recommend starting with our in-office whitening system. You can expect to see about 2-4 shades of improvement in a one-hour visit, depending on your level of staining.

Our follow-up to in-office whitening is a take-home system designed just for you. We make your trays to fit snugly, so your whitening gel stays on your teeth and off of your gums. You’ll go home with enough whitening gel to achieve your brightest smile.

The best part about our take-home system is that you keep your trays forever and you can use them anytime you need a quick spruce up.

As your trusted dentist in Royal Oak, MI, we recommend you start any teeth whitening program with a dental cleaning. Your hygienist will polish away tartar and surface stains that get in the way of your whitening gel. You might even consider whitening your teeth after each dental cleaning to make sure you always look your best.
