Welcome to Saigh Family Dental, the dental office of Dr. Saigh and Dr. Rasmussen where we offer comprehensive dental services to our patients in Iron River, Michigan, and the surrounding areas. If your teeth lack the whiteness they used to have, you are not alone. Tooth discoloration is common, whether from wear and tear over time, from what you eat and what beverages you drink, medication you might be taking, or even because of your family tree.

Extrinsic Stains

Extrinsic stains are surface stains caused by factors on the outside of the tooth, which include eating or drinking tooth-staining foods such as coffee, tea, or wine, smoking or chewing tobacco, and poor oral hygiene habits.

Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains stem from whatever is going on inside the tooth. Tooth decay, taking certain medications such as tetracycline, over fluoridation (known as fluorosis), a chipped or broken tooth which has darkened from deadened nerves, or having a dark amalgam filling in the tooth can all cause tooth staining.

No matter what the cause of your tooth staining, we can help. At Saigh Family Dental in Iron River, Michigan, we are pleased to offer Opalescence® teeth whitening for a sparking, radiant new smile. Opalescence teeth whitening is a patented treatment system that offers professional results at home. A special bleaching gel, available in multiple flavors and formulations, is delivered by wearing custom-made whitening trays. Made of comfortable plastic, these trays fit snugly over your teeth and can be worn day or night. In as little as 30 minutes a day, you can whiten your teeth at your own convenience and personally customize the shade your smile becomes.

Tooth whitening is one of the easiest, fastest and simplest changes you can make to revitalize your smile, so if you would like to find out how our teeth whitening treatments can brighten your smile, or to schedule a visit with Dr. Saigh or Dr. Rasmussen, please give us a call at 906-265-0050 today!
