Because professional tooth whitening is monitored, you permanent damage to your teeth and gums won’t be an issue.
Because over the counter tooth whitening products are not monitored, people tend to use too much product or whiten teeth too often.
Those tooth whitening pastes, gels, strips and rinses are not as strong as professional tooth whitening products. Because the strength is not there, people often go overboard.
Dr. Mary Sue Stonisch also explains that those tooth whitening trays available from you local pharmacy can hurt your gums. Because they are a one size fits all solution, the tooth whitener can touch and irritate your gums causing redness. A custom-made tray from your Grosse Point cosmetic dentist assures that the product is going on your teeth, not your gums.
Too much tooth whitening can also cause sensitivity. Using too much tooth whitener can also make your teeth chalky and see through because of enamel damage.
Dr. Stonisch and her team offer two types of professional tooth whitening dependant on your needs. You can have your teeth whitened chairside while you wait, or opt for custom made whitening trays that you use as per your Grosse Point cosmetic dentist’s instructions.
Philips Zoom™ is a professional tooth whitening system that goes beyond the call of duty. Zoom™ gets into the dentin layer underneath the enamel giving you much better results. People who have brown or gray dentin will see tremendous results with Zoom™
Zoom™ is safe and takes about an hour to complete. Once your treatment is completed, Dr. Stonisch will use a protective gel and give you a professional tooth whitening touch up kit.
Faircourt Dental Smile Studio also offers the SinSational Smile professional tooth whitening system, which brightens your grin in twenty minutes. Your cosmetic dentist in Grosse Point recommends SinSational as an add on to your regular professional cleaning regime.
Keep in mind that professional tooth whitening may not work on all stains and will not work on teeth that have been previously restored.
If your porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns aren’t as bright as they used to be, talk to Dr. Stonisch about other cosmetic dentistry options.
