Teeth Whitening for Flawless Smiles

teeth whitening treatment

Teeth can become stained in many ways. Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or taking certain medications can lead to discolored or splotchy teeth. Aging can also make the teeth look dull and unattractive.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments because it can remedy these problems almost instantly, making a significant difference in the patient’s smile without being too drastic or very expensive.


What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process by which stains are removed from the teeth to make them whiter, brighter, and generally more attractive. It is a treatment that is purely cosmetic in nature.

Unlike the whitening products sold in stores, which remove some of the surface stains at best, professional teeth whitening treatments work by safely penetrating the tooth enamel to reach stains within the tooth. This is the best way to truly get the teeth whiter.


Who can benefit from teeth whitening?

  • Patients who have teeth that are dingy, stained, or dull can greatly benefit from teeth whitening treatments.
  • Coffee or wine drinkers as well as smokers can particularly benefit from the treatment, as these agents often lead to teeth staining.
  • Overall, though, anyone whose teeth are natural (without crowns or other restorations, which cannot be whitened) can benefit from a teeth whitening treatment.
