For over a decade, teeth whitening has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used to make teeth whiter, brighter and more attractive. Our Lansing teeth whitening dentists use professional teeth whitening treatments that are all safe and relatively painless procedures — ideal for most patients.
There are several teeth whitening options available that can remove or reduce the signs of brown and yellow staining. The most effective teeth whitening procedures are available through our Lansing cosmetic dental office. Our Lansing dentist can explain the pros and cons of each treatment and determine the best teeth whitening alternative based on the severity of your staining.
Our East Lansing office recommends that patients use at-home bleach-strips for whiter teeth, or whiten teeth using our SmileBond system.
The bleach strips that we offer are very advanced and are prescription strength. Made of thin, flexible plastic strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide bleach on one side, our whitening strip kits come with strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. You will apply a bleaching agent by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips into place to ensure contact with all your teeth.
These safe and effective teeth whitening strips are worn for about 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment can vary based on the current color of your teeth.
