What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is an excellent way to achieve a smile that is beautiful and bright. Over time, you may have noticed your teeth becoming yellowed or dulled in color, or even stained and severely discolored. This can be caused by a number of day-to-day lifestyle factors, including:

  • Certain medications
  • Illness
  • Consuming certain foods and drinks, such as tea, wine, soda, and coffee
  • Natural aging
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Smoking and other types of tobacco use

Through teeth whitening, we can turn back the clock on your smile for a look that is inviting and attractive. Teeth whitening works to bleach away staining and discoloration on the surface of your teeth, giving you a smile that is bright and white once again.
