Do you have discolored teeth? Do you want a whiter and brighter smile?

Mount Pleasant, MI dentist Dr. Raymond Ribitch offers professional teeth whitening for patients that want brighter teeth. The cosmetic dental procedure is quick, painless, and effective at eliminating stains and discoloration. If you have yellowed, stained, or darkened tooth enamel, professional teeth whitening can help. Teeth whitening can also be the finishing touch for a smile makeover of after orthodontic treatment.

The most common causes of discolored teeth can include smoking and tobacco use, poor oral hygiene, aging, genetics, and certain medications. Drinks like coffee, tea, soda, and red wine easily stain the tooth enamel when consumed frequently.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Are professional whitening treatments permanent?

Teeth whitening isn’t a permanent cosmetic treatment. However, on average, professional whitening treatments can last for a year or more. Remember to avoid tooth-staining foods and beverages to maintain the best results possible.

How much is professional teeth whitening treatment?

The cost of your whitening treatment depends on the severity of your tooth discoloration and the type of treatment. At your consultation with Dr. Ribitch, he will provide you with an accurate cost breakdown of your whitening treatment.

Does insurance cover teeth whitening?

No, dental insurance doesn’t usually cover this procedure. It’s a cosmetic procedure that only improves the aesthetics of your teeth and doesn’t provide any oral health benefits.

Should I get a dental cleaning before or after whitening?

Teeth whitening treatment works best on teeth that are freshly cleaned without buildup. This ensures you get an even shade of white throughout your whole smile, without any splotches or areas that are different because they have plaque and tartar on them.

How long does it take for a professional take-home whitening treatment to show results?

Teeth whitening treatment using custom bleaching trays at home will have gradual results that will peak at around 2 weeks.
