Tooth whitening enhances the brightness of natural teeth, but it’s not for everyone. Discuss it with us before you take action.
Gradually, teeth can become stained or discolored, especially after smoking, taking certain medications, or consuming foods and beverages such as coffee and tea. Using a chemical process, your teeth can be whitened in one of two ways: 1) an in-office procedure or 2) a prescribed system to use at home.
We do not provide in house teeth whitening here in our office, however, we can provide some recommendations if you have questions.
Note that your teeth can become stained again if you continue exposing them to the same substances that originally stained them. Because whitening products are not meant to clean teeth, it is still important to continue practicing daily oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash every day.
