Tooth Whitening for the Smile You Desire, The Care You Deserve!
Very few people have truly white teeth. “Normal’ teeth vary in shades of white to yellowish- white. As we age, our teeth become discolored. Substances like smoking, red wine, and coffee and some medications also take their toll.
Over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions like toothpaste, white strips, and brush-on whiteners offer short-term whitening only. Whitening toothpastes can be abrasive, wearing down tooth enamel, exposing the dentin (the tooth structure underneath) and causing discomfort and other complications. But extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.

Keep Stain-Causing Substances to a Minimum
For example, if you regularly expose your teeth to staining factors, your results will likely fade faster. If you want your whitening procedure to last as long as possible, you should keep the following to a minimum:
- Black tea
- Red wine
- Dark-colored soda
- Smoke from cigarettes and cigars
- Chewing tobacco
