Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a noninvasive dental treatment Dr. Michalak uses to improve the color of your natural tooth enamel, giving you a whiter-looking smile. Whitening agents change the color of your teeth’s natural enamel, eliminating the yellowish tint and removing stains from food and tobacco.

While in-office teeth whitening treatments can dramatically improve the whiteness of your teeth with long-lasting results, you may need additional maintenance treatments over the years, especially if you frequently drink wine, coffee, or tea, or if you use tobacco.

What are the benefits of in-office teeth whitening?

While there are many products on the market that promise fast teeth whitening results, having Dr. Michalak perform professional teeth whitening services ensures you achieve your whitening goals safely. He can help you see immediate results with teeth that are several shades whiter in just one visit.

Teeth whitening products don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution and Dr. Michalak creates a customized whitening plan to ensure you get even results on all of your treated teeth. He discusses your cosmetic goals and provides the right level of whitening you expect from treatment.

Dr. Michalak also uses professional-strength whitening agents to effectively remove deep-set stains — which most store-bought whiteners can’t treat — to ensure you are completely satisfied with your results.

Do teeth whitening treatments hurt?

Another benefit of Dr. Michalak’s in-office professional whitening treatment is his ability to prevent discomfort and pain if your teeth or gums are sensitive. He uses a protective cover over your gums during treatment to ensure the bleaching agents don’t harm your gums or oral health. You can expect to be comfortable and pain-free during a whitening treatment.

In-office treatments take less than an hour, and Dr. Michalak’s team will make sure you are relaxed and comfortable through every step of the treatment.

What are the Venus Diamond teeth whitening products?

The Venus Diamond teeth whitening products by Kulzer provide superior teeth whitening results. Dr. Michalak offers the Venus Diamond disposable teeth whitening products for at-home use. They offer a firm consistency to ensure even coverage for your teeth.

Dr. Michalak provides instruction for using the Venus Diamond disposable trays and you can expect natural-looking, long-lasting results.
