We often do not realize it, but the color of our tooth enamel changes daily as it is exposed to multiple factors. Over time, stains, discoloration, and dark spots can develop. Teeth whitening is the cosmetic treatment designed to reverse this process and reveal your whiter, brighter smile. The most common causes of changes to the appearance of your tooth enamel include:

  • Age
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Sugary and acidic foods
  • Tobacco use
  • Dark-colored drinks, such as coffee and wine
  • Certain medications and illnesses
  • Fluorosis

At Great Lakes Dentistry, we are pleased to offer two different forms of teeth whitening in Royal Oak, Michigan, KöR Whitening and Zoom! Whitening. Both use specialized whitening gels that gently absorb into your tooth enamel to bleach away stains and discoloration. The KöR system works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. Zoom! Whitening uses a specialized laser light to activate the gel to produce results in as little as an hour. Dr. Van de Vyver, our seasoned dentist, will work closely together with you to determine what we can do to help you achieve all of your cosmetic dentistry goals. For a dazzling, more radiant smile, consider teeth whitening! We invite you to call our dental office today to schedule a consultation and learn more. Our team is excited to help rejuvenate your smile!
