Professional teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic improvements you can give your smile. Today, laser dentistry makes this possible to achieve in a single visit to our St. Johns, MI office. Laser teeth whitening using our BIOLASE® Epic X™ laser is one of the fastest solutions in dentistry today and provides patients with a painless and comfortable whitening experience in an average of 20 minutes. Often conveniently followed by your routine hygiene appointment, our laser teeth whitening can give you the brightening results you need to find confidence in your smile—without the hassle and discomfort of store-bought whitening products.
Drugstore whitening products may seem convenient and cost-effective at first, but these options rarely provide patients with the cosmetic improvements they are looking for. If you have tried these over-the-counter products, you are most likely aware that toothpastes or whitening strips can create a lighter appearance, but do not fully whiten or brighten teeth, and the effects are not generally sustained long-term. Professional laser teeth whitening uses a higher concentration of bleaching gel that is activated by laser light, which is both highly effective at whitening deep stains and can be controlled to reduce tooth sensitivity. Using our advanced laser technology, our professional teeth whitening can accomplish in one visit what drugstore brands attempt to do over the course of weeks and even months—with greater comfort and more noticeable, lasting results!
White teeth often give the illusion that the whole mouth is healthy. While, this is often the case, teeth whitening cannot be a substitute for decayed teeth or infected gums. At St. Johns Dental Care, we not only consider the cosmetic treatments that make up an attractive smile, but the functional and restorative care that make up a healthy one, too. To maximize the brightness and health of your smile, we first ensure that your teeth, bone, and gums are functioning properly. We will always emphasize undergoing restorative treatments to improve these areas first before recommending laser teeth whitening. Taking this comprehensive approach to your dental care, we can ensure that your teeth will remain whiter long-term and promote better oral and overall health for many years.
