Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Dental bleaching or tooth whitening is a common procedure in general dentistry.
Tooth whitening is not a permanent solution. It can last a few months to up to three years. The whitening effect varies from person to person. The whitening will not last as long if you smoke or drink red wine, tea, or coffee which can all stain your teeth.
Reasons for tooth whitening:
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Natural aging of tooth structure.
- Brighten your smile.
Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it’s ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth (no fillings). If you think you might be a good candidate for teeth whitening, let us know and we will schedule you for a teeth whitening evaluation.
