Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening Dentists Near MeBrightening your smile has never been easier. Our Ada, MI, cosmetic dentists offer two at-home teeth whitening options: Zoom DayWhite and Zoom NiteWhite. Both utilize custom whitening trays made specifically for you, are convenient for busy schedules, and produce little to no sensitivity. All you need to do is apply the safe, yet powerful gel to the trays and pop them in for the specified amount of time.

Here’s what you need to know about the at-home teeth whitening processes.

Reasons for Teeth Whitening

As the years go on, it’s not uncommon for the color of your teeth to fade. Sometimes the reasoning is simple: you drink too much coffee, tea, or wine. Other times, yellowed or discolored teeth are caused by more than intense color pigments in beverages clinging to your enamel.

You may notice tooth discoloration due to the following:

  • Smoking or other tobacco use
  • Natural aging
  • Oral trauma or injury
  • Certain medications
  • Excessive fluoride exposure (fluorosis)
  • Poor dental hygiene

If after an exam, our dentists find that the level of discoloration is severe, we may suggest porcelain veneers. While veneers are more of a commitment, they are the best option for stubborn, deep-set tooth stains.

DayWhite & NiteWhite Basics

Beautiful, noticeable results are possible no matter which at-home teeth whitening option you choose. It all comes down to your daily schedule and how much you want to wear your whitening trays.

DayWhite is great for patients who aren’t interested in having the trays in place for long, but still want a whiter smile. This form of treatment is available in various whitening formula strengths (our dentists will help select the strength) and should only be applied to the trays for 30-90 minutes at a time. Depending on your smile, you could see results in as little as 2 weeks.

If you’d rather wear the whitening trays as you sleep, NiteWhite is the option for you. Also available in a couple different strengths, NiteWhite can be worn 2-4 hours at a time or overnight. Simply apply the gel into the trays before bed, pop them in, and rest while the whitening ingredients do their thing.
