Do you feel like your smile could benefit from a boost? Teeth whitening is a surefire way to ensure that your teeth become brighter, whiter, teeth whiteningand more beautiful. Find out more about teeth whitening and how it can improve your smile with Dr. James Johnson and Dr. Flora Trang at Johnson & Trang Dental in Plymouth, MI.

What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dental procedure which gives your teeth a brighter, whiter appearance. Though over-the-counter varieties of teeth whitening kits can provide some level of results with continued use over weeks or months, the results are not as quick as the type we offer here. We are able to create custom trays fitted directly to your teeth and offer a higher concentration of whitening gel so you see results quicker.

What can I expect during a teeth whitening procedure?
During your procedure, your dentist will take impressions of your upper and lower arch. This is a quick process and takes less than a half hour appointment. The custom trays are made in-house and will be ready to pick up along with your special concentration of whitening gel in one business day.

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
A good candidate for teeth whitening does not have teeth decay or gum disease. Whitening procedures do not work on porcelain restorations like crowns or bridges, meaning that patients with visible restorations or veneers should alert their dentist so they can make the proper adjustments to avoid an uneven coloring.
