Most people will eventually find it necessary to invest in a professional teeth whitening treatment from a dentist. Even the most diligent oral teeth whiteninghygiene routine can fall short in the face of common food and drinks, habits like smoking, trauma from an accident or sports injury, and even the normal passage of time. And while over the counter products like whitening toothpastes can help, they don't have the whitening power of professional treatments. They may also be abrasive to tooth enamel, which tends to become thinner with age, making teeth more vulnerable to staining and damage. The dentists at the Lakeshore Dentistry and Implant Center in Holland, MI, recommend professional teeth whitening treatments for the best results.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Holland, MI

Investing in whiter teeth is about more than personal preferences and vanity. Studies have shown that a stained or damaged smile is the most common feature that people say they would like to change, and that feeling embarrassed about how their teeth look affects everything from the desire to smile in pictures, or to participate in social and professional events and activities. People with whiter teeth also tend to be perceived as more professional and accomplished, which can affect everything from getting a job to ongoing professional opportunities and success.

Whether you drink coffee every day or enjoy the occasional glass of red wine with dinner, teeth whitening treatments can help to turn back the clock (another benefit of whiter teeth - they can make you look younger!) Professional treatments are available both in-office or through a take-home kit for your convenience. In-office teeth whitening delivers instant results in about an hour, while take-home treatments gradually whiten your teeth over the course of a few weeks, but give you the flexibility to apply the treatment in the comfort of your own home from a custom tray from a mold of your teeth.
