You’re ready to walk down the aisle, but you’ve noticed that your smile isn’t exactly photo-ready. You want to have the perfect photos to capture the perfect day, but you don’t want a yellow smile getting in the way. This is where our Eastpointe, MI, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Peter Jost, can help!

Although at-home whitening systems may be able to provide minimal improvements, if you are dealing with deep, widespread yellowing due to aging, smoking, or your diet, then you may need something stronger. Fortunately, professional whitening system can give you the results you need before the big day!

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Enamel is porous, which means that everything from that evening glass of merlot to that morning cup o’ Joe can lead to the build-up of stains on the surface of your teeth. While brushing and flossing will help keep certain stains at bay, if you smoke or consume a lot of dark, stain-producing foods and drinks, then chances are good that at some point these stains can’t simply be brushed away. When this happens, our Eastpointe, MI, dentist can provide a more effective whitening method.

Should I whiten at home or in the dental office?

Many of our patients choose to get in-office teeth whitening because it’s both extremely effective and delivers the fastest results. If you have a wedding or special occasion coming up, then in-office whitening may be your best option—after all, our whitening system can turn your smile several shades whiter in a single one-hour whitening session.

However, let’s say your wedding or big event isn’t for a couple of months. In this case, you may not feel the need to get immediate results. Furthermore, in-office whitening is a bit more expensive than our at-home whitening system, so if you’re on a budget, this might be the better option for you.

Interested? Give us a call!

If you are ready to get a brighter smile before your big day, then it’s time to call our Eastpointe, MI, dental office to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Jost. Contact us at (586) 771-1460.
