Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.
Teeth can become exposed to many liquids, foods and lose their luster or pleasing appearance. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.
More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging, food, and possibly tobacco stains.
Some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, we only recommend them to maintain your smile after you've had whitening procedures.
Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method. Your new smile needs care and some people need to work harder than others to maintain the "look" they want. It is important to have realistic expectations about what you want to achieve. The interesting and fun part of this process is you look great, and have a much healthier understanding of your mouth and what affects it.
