What’s involved in teeth whitening?
If you live in near Walled Lake, you can benefit from a teeth whitening procedure at our local dental office. Dr. Hechtman is known for improving the appearance of our patients’ smiles. Teeth Whitening is a process where mild bleaching is applied to stained or discolored teeth, which in turn restores them to a healthy and natural color.
First, we will evaluate your teeth to determine whether whitening is right for you. In some cases a different cosmetic procedure may better meet your expectations. Fortunately, this process is safe, quick, and inexpensive, which almost everyone can benefit.
You can whiten your upper teeth or both the upper and lower. Typically, this is dependent on how much are exposed when you talk and smile.
Dental whitening can also be implemented to correct tooth discoloration, such as staining or aging. We offer safe treatment for creating a “vibrant” smile, using the latest in whitening technology.

At-home – whiten your teeth at times convenient to you.
The first step is to make impressions of your teeth. We then create custom whitening trays in our lab to fit your mouth. The purpose of the trays are to ensure the whitening agent adequately comes in contact and whiten your teeth. Along this process we will keep track of your color progression to ensure positive results.

When Will I See Results?
Most patients see results after the initial treatment. The time it takes will depend on the original color of your teeth, how discolored they were, and how frequently the treatment is applied.

How Long Can I Expect the Results to Last?
Typically, you can enjoy your new smile for several years. You can however, “touch-up” your teeth every 6 to 12 months by applying a single treatment. Touch-ups are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that stain teeth, like coffee, tea, and colas.
