Many people struggle with stains on their teeth. A stained smile can leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your whitening options. Fortunately, Dr. John Wiltz is highly trained and has years of experience helping people find the bright, white smile they’ve always wanted.

There are many options if you are looking for a brighter smile. These range from mild to quite strong, and from routine use to one-time event. One popular method that people sometimes ask about is the use of whitening strips.

Whitening strips are essentially clear plastic pieces of film that have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. While the whitening strips are on your teeth the casual observer likely won’t even notice you’re wearing them. While the strips are in your mouth, you should not eat, drink, chew gum or use tobacco products.

Like most other commercially available home-use products, whitening strips can only brighten minor stains on teeth. Deeply stained tooth enamel will require stronger measures. Fortunately, Dr. John Wiltz offers a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively, in as little as a single visit to our office.

It is important to consult with a dentist before beginning any teeth whitening regimen. If you would like to explore your whitening options, please call Dr. John Wiltz at 810.653.4100 to schedule an appointment.
