Tooth Whitening Questions

Serving St. Joseph, Niles, South Bend, Kalamazoo and all of Southwest Michigan

What are the benefits of professional tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile with minimal effort and cost. Our state-of-the-art Zoom! in-office tooth whitening treatment is designed to brighten your smile as much as 8 to 10 shades. After treatment, you will enjoy a more brilliant and attractive smile that can easily make you look years younger. Because the whitening formulas we apply are FDA-approved for safe use, they will not weaken teeth or damage tooth structure.

I prefer to whiten my teeth at home. Do you offer take-home kits?

Absolutely. St. Joseph cosmetic dentist Dr. Sven Erickson also offers Zoom! at-home whitening kits. You can gradually whiten your teeth over the course of several weeks in the comfort of your own home while experiencing comparable results to those achieved in our office.

Can I afford to whiten my teeth professionally?

At Modern Dentistry Associates, we set our whitening fees at a competitive level that allows you to achieve the bright smile you want at an affordable price. You can pay with a major credit card or use CareCredit healthcare financing to cover the cost. Give us a call to learn more about our flexible cosmetic dentistry payment and financing options.

How does professional whitening compare to over-the-counter whiteners?

If you have ever purchased a drugstore whitening kit, only to be disappointed by the results, you know that it can be frustrating to throw money down the drain. With professional tooth whitening, your results are supervised by Dr. Erickson, ensuring that you achieve optimal results. The professional in-office and take-home tooth whitening systems we use are much stronger and more effective than any product you can buy in a store. Our professional whiteners also use custom trays which reduce tooth sensitivity compared to over-the-counter systems.

How long will my results last?

The length of time your results will last depends on your personal habits. Daily use of your teeth and the natural aging process combine to cause discoloration at a slow rate. You can prolong the effectiveness of your results by consuming coffee, tea, and red wine in moderation, brushing and flossing regularly, and avoiding nicotine. You may require a touch up treatment down the road to maintain your results.
