Even if it doesn’t feel like it here in blustery, wintery Detroit, spring will be here before we know it, which means that it’s time to start lightening your smile for the warmer months. To do this, renowned Detroit cosmetic dentist Dr. Aziza Askari has a few options for you to choose from when it comes to achieving the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted.
Because teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic procedure in the United States, Dr. Askari is proud to offer three premier bleaching treatments that can help you whiten your smile and take years off of your appearance. The first of these is at-home teeth whitening.
For her patients looking to correct stains from years of smoking, drinking coffee and red wine, and aging, Dr. Askari often suggests at-home teeth whitening as a way to lighten their smile dramatically over the course of a few weeks in the privacy of their own home.
Once impressions have been taken and your custom bleaching tray has been fabricated, Dr. Askari will invite you back to our Farmington Hills dentist office to explain the details of your bleaching treatment. After wearing your bleaching tray either twice a day or overnight for a few weeks, you’ll see teeth that are multiple shades lighter. Dr. Askari encourages her at-home-whitening patients to keep their trays for occasional touch-up bleaching sessions.
For patients looking to correct deeper dental stains—from fluorisis, medication, and medical problems—as well as surface stains, Dr. Askari recommends in-office teeth whitening for immediate results.
Zoom! is a well-known in-office whitening treatment that provides patients with dramatically whiter teeth in just one hour. When you come to Comfort Dental Spa for your Zoom! treatment, Dr. Askari will apply the professional-strength bleaching gel and activate the specialized bleaching light. A benefit of this bleaching light is that it uses only a small amount of heat, therefore causing little to no tooth sensitivity. After your treatment, you’ll be on your way to whiter teeth in no time.
Results vary depending on your smile goals and the current color and degree of staining on your teeth, but Zoom! can whiten your teeth up to ten shades, and patients have reported seeing their teeth whiten even more in the twenty-four hours following their procedure.
Another option for in-office teeth whitening is KöR whitening. KöR is a new, revolutionary teeth whitening treatment that has the power to lighten even the deepest dental stains. In fact, it’s the only recognized bleaching system in the world that can whiten stains caused by the medication tetracycline, which causes very dark, beneath-the-surface, dental stains.
Following your KöR and Zoom! procedures, Dr. Askari encourages you to maintain your new white smile with at-home teeth whitening.
