Common Teeth Whitening FAQs

What types of stains can professional whitening treat?

teeth whiteningMichigan cosmetic dentist Dr. Mulder answers common questions about Invisalign clear braces. Contact us today to learn more about how Invisalign may straighten your teeth and perfect your smile.Our Grand Rapids in-office and at-home whitening solutions are designed to remove surface staining caused by coffee, wine, tea, tobacco, and aging. There are some antibiotics which cause tooth discoloration when they’re given during childhood, and these stains are very difficult to remove. No tooth whiteners can alter the color of dental restorations like fillings, crowns, and veneers.

Am I a good candidate for tooth whitening?

If you have discolored teeth that you wish looked whiter and more youthful, chances are you will be approved for any of Dr. Mulder’s safe whitening programs. If you have discoloration due to tetracycline or high fluoride doses, you may also benefit from whitening treatment, although the results may be less dramatic. If you have sensitive teeth Dr. Mulder can put you on a lower percentage gel or you can use a desensitizing gel. This may take longer than an average patient but the same results should be expected. Patients with periodontal disease should seek treatment with Dr. Mulder to correct the condition of their gums prior to tooth whitening. If you are pregnant or breast feeding, we recommended that you wait post-up for your whitening treatment. If a child requests tooth whitening, we recommend they start around the age of 15 or older. If you have any questions regarding being a candidate for tooth whitening, do not hesitate to call or email us with any questions.

Which tooth whitening treatment works best?

Will my whitening results last?
