You’re not sure when your teeth got this bad, but now, they’re dark and dingy. That’s because stains grow slowly on your teeth. Years of coffee, chocolate, wine, and more can turn any white smile dark. And because it happens slowly, you sometimes never realize just how dark your smile has become.

You may have thought about these teeth whitening kits in drugstores, but you have to be careful. These kits are weaker and have other problems.

That’s why you need to call our Birmingham, MI dental office today at 248-972-8720 to make your appointment for Zoom teeth whitening. Our Birmingham dentist is trained in this professional-strength cosmetic dentistry treatment. This means you can safely and surely get your teeth whiter and your smile brighter.

Why Get Teeth Whitening?

How do your teeth get stained? They might look smooth, but your enamel is actually full of tiny craters and grooves. When you eat or drink something dark, a tiny amount gets trapped in those imperfections. Over the years, those stains build up and turn your whole smile dark and brownish. And if you use tobacco, things get worse much faster.

But why get those stains removed? Here are a few benefits you get from getting professional teeth whitening from Dr. Newingham.

  • It can take years off how you look.
  • Your self-esteem can go higher.
  • You can make better first impressions.
  • You can feel more confident speaking to others.

By calling our Birmingham dentist, you can schedule an appointment for professional Zoom teeth whitening that can help with these benefits and more.

Why You Should Skip Teeth Whitening Kits

Teeth whitening kits in stores are cheap, but you know the old saying; you get what you paid for. Here are some of the problems from getting your cosmetic dentistry from a box on a shelf.


Typically, the strong whitening agents in cosmetic dentistry are only available to dentists. Then how can you get it in stores? The whitening agents in teeth whitening kits are diluted. This allows companies to sell the kits over the counter instead of through a dentist. That means you’ll have to use these kits a few times to get the same results.


Before a dentist can offer cosmetic dentistry like this, they need to be trained for a long time. That’s because teeth whitening done properly requires training. But with a box of teeth whitening, you have to be that dentist. That means you’re responsible for how it turns out, and if anything that goes wrong.


The whitening agent in teeth whitening is designed specifically for enamel, and enamel is very durable. However, your gums are a very different story. If you get too much on your gum, you can damage your gum tissues. And since you’re the dentist in these cases, you have to be the one being very careful.
