3 Ways To Whiten Your Smile [BLOG]

Cosmetic Dentistry 2 Highland, MI | Highland Advanced Dental Care

You have multiple ways to get a gorgeous, bright smile when you come to Highland Advanced Dental Care for cosmetic dentistry!

Today, our team in Highland Township, MI is filling you in on three ways to whiten your teeth for a smile you’ll love this year!

Remove Stains With Teeth Whitening

Only a dentist can give you a whiter smile safely and effectively, unlike those kits you find in drugstores.

That’s because our whitening system has prescription strength bleaching agents that render the dramatic results no OTC product can.

Not only is our whitening treatment effective, but it’s one of the most affordable ways to brighten your smile and boost your self-esteem!

The best part is that you can take our treatment home and get a whiter smile from the coziness of your own couch!

Go A Step Further With Tooth Bonding

There are certain cosmetic treatments that correct multiple flaws at a time.

Tooth bonding, like our whitening system, is an affordable smile enhancement option that goes further than lightening your teeth several shades.

It’s a method that uses a tooth-colored resin to fill in small cracks or uneven surfaces on your teeth for a beautiful, smooth finish.

Bonding is reversible and non-invasive, and considering the affordability of the treatment, there’s less risk if you’re not happy with the result.

(*Spoiler Alert: You WILL be happy with the result!)

Go All Out With Dental Veneers

For a smile transformation, dental veneers are the way to go!

Veneers do similar things for your smile that bonding does, like hiding cracks and giving you smooth, flawless teeth.

But they’re reserved for the kind of smile flaws that are more noticeable and complicated.

Unlike bonding where a resin fills in problem spots, dental veneers are bonded to your teeth to cover them completely!

Here are some other ways veneers take your smile to a whole new level:

-They’re made to look translucent like real enamel.

-They’re custom-made for you so they’ll fit comfortably and naturally.

-They last much longer than tooth bonding, usually for a couple of decades!

-They don’t just hide smile flaws, but they protect damaged teeth from getting worse.

-They close gaps and hide misshapen teeth for an instantly straighter smile!

When it comes to beautifying your smile, dental veneers are extraordinary!

Which Whitening Option Is Best For You?

Knowing which treatment option is best depends on a number of factors. This is something Dr. LoCascio can help you sort through during an initial cosmetic consultation.

You’ll discuss things like medical history and lifestyle in order to better understand the cause of your teeth stains.

It helps us determine the best course of treatment. Professional teeth whitening is great for stains left behind from things like coffee, wine, dark sauces, and tobacco use.

But other types of discoloration is resistant to this method, such as:

-Your Age

-Your Health

-Your Genetics

-Your Prescription Medication Use

For more stubborn, darker teeth stains, bonding or veneers may be more beneficial for you.

Schedule A Consultation

Although we can’t tell you with a blog which cosmetic treatment will get you the kind of smile you want, there’s something we can tell you for sure. A brighter, whiter smile can only be achieved at the hands of a dental professional.

Stores don’t carry the kind of whitening products like you get from a dentist. Legally, they’re obligated to only include very weak whitening agents in their gels and strips. This will do little to give you the results you want.

But even with weaker treatments, store whitening kits can’t guarantee safe application because of their universally manufactured mouth trays and strips. A professional, however, can administer whitening treatment safely so your gums are protected from any chemicals because the trays are custom-made to fit you.

Now that you’re ready to put your cosmetically enhanced smile in professional hands, it’s time to choose the right team.

That’s Dr. LoCascio and our staff at Highland Advanced Dental Care. We can help you decide whether your smile goals can be achieved with whitening treatment, tooth bonding, or dental veneers!
