What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional take-home teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment aimed at erasing years of stubborn stains and discoloration from the teeth. At John Leitner, DDS, we use high-quality deep-bleaching products that break stains down into smaller pieces, lifting them from your teeth and boosting your smile’s brightness. 

Common Reasons Teeth Stain

Teeth develop stains for various reasons, including:

  • Foods like blueberries, pomegranates, or other dark fruits
  • Drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soda
  • Tobacco use
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Certain medications
  • Disease

If you’ve been unhappy with the color of your teeth, call our Grand Haven dental office at (616) 842-2850 to schedule an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

On average, the results from a professional take-home teeth whitening treatment can last as long as three years with proper oral care. To keep your smile whiter for longer, avoid stain-inducing foods and drinks and maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine. Professional whitening treatments are not only safer for your teeth, but they also produce longer-lasting results.

The cost of take-home teeth whitening treatments varies from patient to patient. Professional teeth whitening is considered an elective treatment, meaning that it’s often not covered by insurance. We recommend contacting your provider to get a more detailed explanation of your coverage benefits. 

At your consultation with Dr. Leitner, he’ll provide you with a full breakdown of your treatment costs.

Yes! Professional take-home teeth whitening treatments can help your teeth go from yellow to white. However, some deep stains may be resistant to whitening treatment. In cases where stains can’t be lifted, Dr. Leitner may recommend porcelain veneers. Veneers are an excellent cosmetic treatment that can help you achieve a beautiful smile. 

While many people believe that yellow teeth are unhealthy, that’s not always the case. Yellow or slightly discolored teeth can be in perfect condition and have simply built up stains over time from certain food and beverages.
