Teeth Whitening, or bleaching, is a safe, very popular and most economical way to give you a whiter, more confident smile fast. There are a variety of options for both in office and at home teeth whitening treatments to restore your teeth to their natural white color.
Teeth whitening makes a huge impact on your appearance. Even perfectly straight teeth won’t be as impressive when they are off-color or yellow. Dental whitening can make all the difference.
Why Won’t My Teeth Stay White?
The protective layer of teeth called enamel is designed to protect the teeth from the effects of chewing, trauma and acid attacks caused by sugar. Over the years, enamel is worn down, becoming more transparent and permitting the yellow color of dentin (the tooth’s core material) to show through.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Reasons For Teeth Whitening:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Stained teeth due to medications
- Yellow, brown stained teeth
