If you are a teen who wishes for a whiter and brighter smile, our Dearborn West Dental team is here to help you! There are many ways you can whiten your smile, but we are here to tell you the proper way to do so. So, in order to whiten your smile in a safe and healthy way, we recommend the following options:

Over-the-counter whitening
There are many over-the-counter whitening options, like whitening kits, gels, toothpastes, and trays. However, if you want the best product as well as the best brand for your smile, we strongly recommend asking your dentist for tips. Some treatments are too strong and they harm your gums and teeth. So, make sure you get tips from your dentist before you start a treatment.

In-office whitening
In-office whitening is one of the fastest and most successful ways of brightening your smile. There are generally two treatments available: customized whitening trays and in-office bleaching. The first treatment involves your dentist making customized whitening trays for your specific smile. Then, he will give you the whitening solution to put inside the trays and the instructions you need to be successful. The second treatment involves you going into the office, sitting in a chair, and letting your dentist do the work. First, he will put a whitening solution on your teeth. Then, he will activate the solution with a special light. This should take about 45 minutes and you’ll leave with a brilliant smile.

If you would like to know more about whitening your teen smile, please remember that you can always call 313-562-5610 and talk to our caring and helpful dental team. We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Farber if you’re interested in whitening your smile with an in-office whitening treatment. We are happy to help you!
