Just about everyone wishes they had whiter teeth.Fortunately, there is an easy, painless way to make your teeth whiter with bleaching – a dental technique that can give you a dazzling, bright smile! Tooth Whitening is a bleaching process that safely removes the discolorations of tooth enamel.

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration , as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. The level of whiteness that can be achieved by teeth bleaching will depend on the degree of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained. Regardless, your teeth will be noticeably whiter after bleaching.

What causes discoloration
of the teeth?

Teeth enamel discoloration can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth . Some of the more common causes of teeth discoloration are some specific medications, coffee, tea or cigarettes . People who drink significant amounts of cola soft drinks can experience similar staining.

Aside from staining, there are other factors that can affect the color of an individual’s teeth.

Treatment expectations upon completion of our Tooth Whitening

Significant whitening can be achieved in most cases immediately or within 24 hours after treatment, but there is no definitive way to predict how light your teeth will get, because it depends on your teeth structure. Patients with yellowish brown teeth tend to whiten faster and more fully than people with grayish-to-grayish brown shaded teeth. Teeth stained by antibiotics and teeth with traumatic injury or root canal treatment, do not always respond immediately and may require further treatment.

Tooth colored fillings, veneers, bonding, and porcelain crowns will not whiten at all or evenly with your natural teeth during this procedure. All dental restorations that show when you smile may need to be replaced at your expense. Please be sure to discuss this with the dentist prior to beginning the treatment. In order to increase your tooth whiteness, home bleaching is recommended.
