If you've ever wanted to brighten your smile, Dr. Marc Cammarata in Farmington Hills, MI, and Shelby Township, MI can help make the whitest, brightest smile dreams come true.
What Whitening Treatments Work Best?
Your smile shouldn’t be treated with any less care than you treat your body and mind. That’s why we use the most up-to-date teeth whitening treatments to help brighten your smile. There are many treatments to choose from, so it can be challenging to decide what you really need for discolored teeth due to coffee or tea drinking, medication staining, fluorosis, and other causes that make your teeth dull-looking. Here are a few common remedies:
- Strips like Crest White Strips
- Teeth whitening pens
- Teeth whitening toothpaste
- Professional home whitening kits
- Express whitening treatments
It doesn’t matter how a whitening treatment is marketed, there are pluses and minuses for all of them.
What About Home Whitening Kits?
Some home-whitening kits are safe but research suggests that some of their ingredients can cause damage to the tooth enamel. Hydrogen-peroxide-based teeth whitening systems also change protein inside your teeth’ dentin layer, according to research conducted by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. This protein-rich tooth layer keeps your teeth healthy and strong. If you’re going to try a home-whitening system, it’s best to go for one that uses an alternative ingredient.
Is In-Office Whitening Treatments Better?
When we whiten your teeth in our offices, we can keep your teeth and gum protected and healthy while also removing discoloration. We can also discuss other teeth brightening procedures like veneers for stubborn stains.
