Traditional Whitening

Have you not been getting the results you want with over-the-counter teeth whitening toothpaste, strips, and trays? If so, you may want to consider the benefits of professional teeth whitening.

Our Grand Rapids dentist will determine if you are a candidate for traditional whitening. After just one appointment, you’ll be able to walk out of our Grand Rapids family dentistry with a whiter smile. Traditional whitening treatment brightens your smile by several shades of white so you can feel confident.

During the procedure, our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentist will apply a special type of bleaching gel to the surface of your teeth. This gel will stay on your teeth for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the severity of tooth discoloration. The gel is then removed and replaced with a fresh layer for another 15 to 30 minutes. Our dentist may decide you need more teeth whitening sessions depending on how many teeth stains are present.

If you haven’t achieved the shade of white you want, our Grand Rapids family dentist may suggest you follow up with another appointment or get you set up with a custom whitening tray to continue teeth whitening treatments at home.

Dr. Ritzema DDS at Complete Health Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients feel confident with restored smiles by offering teeth whitening services as well as other cosmetic dental services. If you are interested in learning more about our whitening treatment, give us a call at (616) 458-7267.
