Whitening your teeth is the simplest way to update your smile. Over time, teeth become discolored by a variety of factors, some of which are aging, consumption of staining substances (i.e. coffee, tea, wine, colas, tobacco), trauma, tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, nerve degeneration and old leaky amalgam restorations. These stains go deep, penetrating the surface of the tooth’s enamel. In order to get your teeth back to their natural white color, you must penetrate below the surface of the enamel to remove the stain.

We can make almost anyone’s teeth whiter with any of the professional whitening methods listed below. It is highly unlikely that a store bought whitener can achieve these dramatic results. The whitening process is effective on most discolored teeth, but darker stains caused by antibiotics are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whitening will vary from patient to patient as whitening affects different teeth in different ways as some patients have thicker enamel than others. The whitening process reverses the discoloration of enamel – the outside layer of tooth structure – so it is perfectly safe and effective. Whitening is considered the safest form of cosmetic dentistry.
If you are considering any cosmetic work and you are not satisfied with the present shade of your smile, it is VERY important to whiten your teeth PRIOR to any cosmetic restoration, or you will risk a different color match, even if you whiten your teeth at a later date. Please note that white composite fillings, porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges and implants do NOT whiten.
