Sometimes, your teeth can be perfectly healthy, but just not as bright as you would like. If that’s the case, we recommend teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening is:
- Relatively Inexpensive
There’s no need to live with a smile that is not bright and healthy-looking. Teeth can become discolored for many reasons, including:
- Tobacco use
- Drinking dark liquids (coffee, wine, tea, etc.)
- Taking medications such as Tetracycline
- Dark foods
Regardless if you have a lot of discoloration or just a little, there is a tooth whitening procedure for you. There’s at-home tooth whitening, where you put bleaching gel into a custom-fit tray, and wear the tray at night for about a month. Or there’s in-office Zoom!™ tooth whitening, where your teeth are coated with a special gel, which is then activated by a laser, whitening your teeth up to eight shades in about 45 minutes.
Over-the-counter whitening products are also available, but we don’t recommend them. Unlike our products, over-the-counter products:
- Can be abrasive to the enamel of your teeth
- Don’t whiten teeth evenly
- Don’t create a very natural look
- Cause unnecessary sensitivity
