Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that aims at improving your tooth’s appearance by restoring its enamel to its natural color: white. It is estimated that over 100 million Americans whiten their teeth one way or another – because white teeth is an important aspect of our society today.
Professional Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening that is offered in our office is far more powerful and effective than what you will typically find at drug stores or in the local grocery store. The problem with bleaching pens, gels, strips, and mouthwashes are that they take a while before you begin to see results – if you even see results.
Depending on how severely discolored your teeth are will determine how many appointments you will need until your teeth are completely whitened.
Common Causes of DiscolorationThere are many sources of teeth discoloration, so we will only cover some of the most common culprits:
- Bad oral hygiene
- Dark berries
- Tobacco (or smoking in general)
Teeth whitening attempts to correct stains and damage that has accumulated over time from consumption of specific foods and drinks.
