Teeth Whitening in Grand Rapids

With teeth whitening in Grand Rapids, Dr. Samuel T. Bander and his talented team create brighter smiles. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that enhances the shade of patients’ teeth, which has the added benefit of improving their confidence. This is especially beneficial for those who need brighter teeth just in time for a big event, like a wedding or graduation ceremony.

As more patients emphasize the aesthetics of their teeth, a variety of whitening systems have been developed. Some are convenient take-home treatments, while others can be completed in-office and after one office visit. 

Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?

Patients commonly seek teeth whitening after regular exposure to acidic or staining agents, such as coffee, red wine, and cigarettes. Teeth whitening can also be part of a greater cosmetic and restorative treatment plan. As patients obtain restorations, such as crowns or dental bridges, teeth are often whitened first, as a way to color-match treated teeth to bright, natural teeth. Bleaching is also recommended for patients who undergo orthodontic treatment with clear braces.

Teeth Whitening Options

Most often, patients want the convenience of professional quality whitening from the comfort of their home. We offer professional, customized take-home kits that allow patients to conduct treatment at their own pace.

Dr. Bander and team take impressions of your teeth, so our trusted dental lab can build your whitening trays. We ensure that your trays have a secure fit. If needed, Dr. Bander makes adjustments in-office while you wait. You will then be able to take your clear trays and whitening product home for use.

We recommend wearing trays and solution for 30-minutes, twice daily, or them overnight for a few weeks, until you’ve reached your desired level of whitening. 

We encourage you to continue with regular dental visits and ask any questions you may have about the treatment. Along with teeth whitening solutions, Dr. Bander provides his patients with excellent education on prevention, which can go a long way toward keeping your smile healthy and bright.
