Overtime teeth can become discolored, yellowed or stained leaving you with a dull smile. Teeth whitening, however, is a simple procedure that can give you a big boost in your confidence. In just one short dental visit, you can leave our office with a brighter and whiter smile and that will have you grinning from ear to ear.
Teeth can become discolored for a number of reasons due to:
- Food and beverages
- Tobacco use
- Age related
There are two types of stains known as extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains settle on the surface of the teeth while intrinsic stains get into the layer underneath enamel known as dentin. While there are many types of whitening toothpastes on the market, they only affect some of the extrinsic stains. Teeth whitening, however, can effectively tackle the more difficult ones to restore a whiter look to your teeth.
