You Deserve Your Dream Smile
Have you considered professional teeth whitening? Your smile is one of the first features people notice when they meet you. There are many benefits to having a beautiful-looking smile, including looking feeling more attractive overall.

How Do Teeth Become Discolored?
It’s a common misconception that yellow teeth only result from poor oral hygiene. While oral hygiene does play an important role in the color of your teeth, there are many other ways that your teeth can become discolored, some of which are out of your control.
Some of the main reasons for tooth discoloration include:
- Natural darkening with age
- Drinking red wine, soda, and coffee
- Eating dark fruits such as blueberries
- Tobacco use
- Certain medications
Our Parkside Dental team will help you determine which of our whitening treatments is best for you, no matter the reason for your discoloration.
Teeth Whitening Options at Parkside Dental
Take-Home Whitening Trays
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, we can create custom whitening trays for you. To begin the process, just schedule an appointment at our Westland office so we can create impressions of your teeth to send to the laboratory for creation.
Once your trays are ready, you can come pick them up along with your whitening gel. Dr. Cohen, Dr. Rogers, or Dr. Seir will go over the instructions with you so you know how to safely whiten your teeth at home. You should begin noticing results within the first couple weeks.
Zoom! In-Office Whitening
If you have severe tooth discoloration, we may recommend teeth whitening in our office. As the name suggests, Zoom teeth whitening helps you quickly achieve a noticeably whiter smile in one appointment or over a period of time at home. In fact, Zoom teeth whitening can help whiten your teeth by up to eight shades.
During your consultation, our dentists will be able to determine the extent of tooth discoloration and whether you would benefit from Zoom. During the procedure, we’ll apply a whitening gel to your teeth. Then, we’ll use a LED whitening lamp to speed up the process and help you achieve the white smile you’ve always wanted.
The in-office procedure only takes an hour, and the results are instant. And with proper care, your results can last up to two years. Best of all, Zoom has a very high rate of patient satisfaction.
