Are you looking for a solution to give you a long-lasting and dramatically whiter smile? Teeth naturally become yellow or stained as we age, but other dental issues as well as your diet can accelerate the process. If you have teeth that are significantly yellowed or stained, it can cause anxiety or nervousness when you smile, talk, and take pictures. If you are looking for a teeth whitening solution in Birmingham, MI, our staff has effective treatments that will bring your teeth back to their naturally pearly white color – or even brighter.
Whiten Your Teeth with Zoom Whitening
At Newingham Dental Center, we use Zoom teeth whitening technology to help our patients dramatically lighten the shade of their teeth. If you are interested in whitening, we will first inspect your teeth, their shade, and their sensitivity to determine what treatment is most appropriate.
First off, when we get people that come to our office and they say, “I want to whiten my teeth.” The first thing I do is I give them an evaluation because sometimes whitening’s not going to help their teeth. I say, “Save your money.”
I can tell by looking at the enamel whether or not the discoloration that they’re seeing is an internal stain. Is their enamel a little more translucent than most? Meaning, you can see through to the underlying layer of the tooth structure called the dentin, which is often times very dark and gray or yellowish hue to them. We can whiten all day long and we won’t whiten those teeth.
Let’s say for instance, your teeth could benefit from whitening. We have several options. We do a custom made tray option where we make trays for your upper and lower teeth and you apply the gel yourself at home, at your convenience. It usually takes three or four days for you to see the improvement you’re looking for.
We also have Zoom Whitening. One of the best whitening systems available, where we can do it within forty-five minutes to an hour in our office. We have some people that say, “I don’t want to deal with the trays. I don’t want to be responsible for anything. I just kind of want you guys to do it and be done with it.” We sit you down, you can watch TV, you can listen to the radio. We get the Zoom Whitening going and in an hour your teeth can change shades by as much as seven shades. We can usually predict how well it’s going to go so we can give you an idea of what the end result’s going to be. Sometimes we’re surprised with how well it does go far and beyond where we thought it would go.
For the most seriously stained or yellowed teeth, we will provide an in-house bleaching treatment. This treatment consists of 15-minute sessions where we apply a whitening gel and special light technology to begin the whitening process. Depending on the severity of the stains, we may need to apply 1 to 3 of these 15-minute treatments. In just one visit in our Birmingham, MI office with these sessions, you’ll immediately notice that your teeth are several shades whiter.
If you have less serious staining or yellowing, we can provide Zoom whitening take-home kits with whitening trays that you can wear while you sleep. These kits are much more effective than over-the-counter products because the whitening trays are made from impressions of your teeth, so they will perfectly fit in your mouth.
You get to know the nurses, the hygienists and what not. It’s just a fun time. It’s just a fun time. You feel like part of the family. I had a slight little overbite in back. I was grinding my teeth. We set me up with a little retainer and everything, sleep in, help with that so I don’t keep grinding the teeth. [inaudible 00:00:21] I didn’t really know I was doing it until he showed me the pictures. I’m like, “Oh, I guess I am. Okay.” You do find yourself sleeping better. He does his checkups and he finds little things to improve the smile. They certainly tell you about your flossing and a little spray floss. It makes it a good thing. You can come in here and get the whitening done. You go out and people are just amazed. It’s like, “Wow, your teeth are so bright. Where do you go? Where do you go?” I tell them where I go and everything and I say, “How do you like the place?” Say, “I love the place. Been going there for so long it’s just second nature. I don’t plan on going anywhere else.”
Because of their perfect shape and size, they will prevent whitening gel from reaching and damaging your gums – a common side effect of store-bought whitening products. The tight fit will also prevent the gel from dripping off your teeth, so that it whitens your teeth for the entire time you’re sleeping.
With either our in-office teeth whitening or take-home treatments, you will be under the expert care of Dr. Newingham, so you can expect the safest and best results that will last several months.
