Shelby Township Dentist Discusses Whitening Options

Hi, this is Dr. Antolak from the Gentle Dentist in Shelby Township, Michigan. 586-247-3500 is our phone number. These are Crest White Strips. Obviously you can tell by the box.  This is something that we use for people who want to have kind of whitening done and without going through the impressions and that type of thing. This is good for people who have teeth that are nice straight in alignment. And they are little strips that are sticky; you peel them off and just kind of stick them to your teeth. And the difference between this and the ones over the counter, this is the professional strength, is that it’s actually a stronger solution that’s there and it equates to about three times as much whitening for the value for the dollar. It’s a stronger solution. Plus you get more whitening strips then you do in the store for the price. We recommend usually doing different types of whitening, depending on what the patient wants and the effect that they want. Either will do something called kor whitening, which uses not a light but it’s an in office whitening that does not use lighting.

We also use the zoom system, which uses a light. With the zoom system, the teeth can become sensitized and sensitive. So, we usually use the core whitening if somebody wants a really profound change in their whitening. We also use what’s called night white or day white- which is the whitening with a little tray that you use that you put the solution in. And you wear that at night time. And also for, the lowest cost would be the, the white strips that I’m holding up here. That is there to help with somebody who just wants to touch up.  It’s not going to cover all their teeth and it’s not going to get quite the effect that we do when we professionally whiten them in the office or with our professional trays that you wear but they do an effective job.
