Teeth Whitening: Which Method is Right for You?

Your smile makes an immediate impact on people you meet. A brighter smile projects youth, vitality, health, happiness, and warmth. When asked, “What would you like to improve most about your smile?”, the most common response is: whiter & brighter teeth! As a cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening can often provide a quick, painless and economical smile makeover; erasing years of wear on the teeth from both lifestyle habits and aging.

As our teeth age, a lifetime of use can cause discoloration. This can be hastened by other factors such as smoking, tobacco use or daily consumption of coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Although brushing at least twice daily and flossing can help slow this discoloration and help you maintain your oral health, these alone cannot reverse this discoloration. Over-the-counter whitening strips and specialty toothpastes may show some results but are limited in strength and effectiveness.
