Brighten Your Smile With Dr. Shlafer

Your smile is often one of the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, it can be hard to smile with confidence when you have stained or yellow teeth.

If you’re one of these patients, Dr. Shlafer offers two convenient options for teeth whitening at our practice.

What Causes Stained Teeth?

Stained or discolored teeth can result from a variety of factors. Some of these include:

  • Inadequate Oral Hygiene — It’s crucial to brush your teeth and floss every day to preserve the health and appearance of your teeth.
  • Tobacco — Smoking or chewing tobacco both leave nicotine stains on your teeth that cause them to look yellow over time.
  • Certain Foods and Beverages — Foods such as blueberries, pomegranates, and curry can leave dark stains on your teeth; the same is true of beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, and soda.
  • Some Medications — Antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline can contribute to stained teeth.
  • Age — As you get older, your teeth will inevitably lose some of their natural shine and may eventually grow discolored.

BriteSmile® In-Office Whitening

If you want immediate results, Dr. Shlafer will recommend our BriteSmile in-office treatment. The procedure only takes one short appointment to make your teeth several shades whiter.

During your visit, Dr. Shlafer will apply the BriteSmile whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a special dental light. This process will remove stains and discoloration from your teeth in as little as one hour, maximizing your time in the dental chair. You can even listen to music or watch television during your treatment for maximum comfort.

Nite White® Take-Home Whitening Kits

While the in-office procedure is quicker, some patients prefer to treat themselves in the comfort of their own home. The Nite White system uses a patented gel to eliminate stains on your teeth, providing you with a brighter and more attractive smile. These take-home whitening kits give you all the tools you need to achieve stunning results on your own.

Application is easy — simply fill your customized trays with the bleaching gel and wear them overnight while you sleep. In just seven to ten nights, you’ll be ready to show off your new smile to everyone you know.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Our professional teeth whitening treatment is safe, powerful, and can remove stubborn surface stains in as little as one hour. Dr. Shlafer offers both in-office and take-home whitening kits for maximum convenience and comfort. After several whitening sessions, patients can expect a significantly brighter smile that’ll light up the room.
Some patients may experience mild sensitivity after whitening or discomfort when drinking or eating hot or cold products. However, this should subside within 1-2 days after treatment. To help tooth sensitivity, Dr. Shlafer recommends taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agent, like Motrin, and reducing the frequency and duration of following treatments.

If the pain continues after several days, contact our Farmington office at (248) 781-0040 as soon as possible. We’ll examine your teeth and determine an effective solution to relive your discomfort.
For patients seeking immediate results, Dr. Shlafer will recommend our BrightSmile® in-office whitening treatment. It uses a strong whitening gel that’s activated with a special dental light to remove stubborn stains and discoloration in just one hour.

Our Nite White® take-home whitening kit is ideal for patients seeking a more convenient alternative, as it’s completed from the comfort of your own home. We’ll provide you with a powerful patented gel and customized trays to wear overnight while you sleep. With Nite White, patients can expect results in about 7-10 nights.
To maintain a whiter smile, it’s crucial to care for your teeth after whitening treatment to prevent additional staining and prevent damaging your enamel. It’s best to use a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothbrush when cleaning your teeth. Dr. Shlafer also recommends avoiding hot or cold foods and beverages for at least 1-2 days after treatment.

Try avoiding rich-colored foods and beverages, like coffee, tea, soda, berries, and dark wines to prevent discoloring your freshly whitened teeth.
