Gain a Brighter Smile With Teeth Whitening

Dr. Jeanette Murphy provides teeth whitening in Monroe, MI, for patients unhappy with the appearance of their smiles. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, so invest in a professional teeth whitening treatment and make a great impression with a nice bright smile!

Teeth Whitening

Your teeth are vulnerable to stains from coffee, tea, wine, and smoking. Many patients are looking to brighten their smiles to fight these stains and reverse signs of aging. Whether you have significant staining or just want a brightening boost, you can get teeth whitening treatment in Monroe, MI.

If you are unhappy with the shade of your smile, you may have tried a whitening kit from the drugstore in the past. Many of our patients have tried these kits and report mixed results at best. These whitening kits are actually easy to misuse and can even damage your gums. When you get a professional teeth whitening treatment in our office, your gums are protected before the treatment even starts.

Getting a Treatment

When you get a teeth whitening treatment in our office, your gums are protected first. Then the whitening gel is applied by a dental professional and your teeth are monitored for the duration of the treatment. More gel may be reapplied for maximum effect. A typical whitening treatment can whiten teeth several shades in the space of about an hour.

Once you've had a teeth whitening treatment, you need to keep up a great oral hygiene routine at home to maintain the results. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Your dentist will also recommend that you quit smoking to prevent oral cancer, and enjoy beverages with the potential to stain with water so your teeth get rinsed too.
