Teeth whitening procedures are done to bleach discolored, stained or darkened teeth.
Whitening or (bleaching) of your teeth can improve their appearance and smile. The whitening agents can lighten the shade of teeth considerably. They are effective on most external discoloration such as is caused by long time coffee, tea, and tobacco stains. It is not as effective on discoloration caused by medications such as tetracycline, conditions like florosis or teeth discolored due to root canal therapy.
Whitening toothpastes can achieve minor improvements but can be somewhat abrasive. Professional whitening performed in office is considered to be the most effective and safest method. Take home trays can be made fabricated and professional whitening agents supplied by our office, which is also very effective.
