Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, cost effective, and non-invasive way to improve the color of the tooth’s enamel. Removing stains and discoloration from the tooth’s natural enamel is an ideal way to enhance the natural, unique beauty of one’s smile.
With teeth whitening becoming ever more popular among patients, developments in cosmetic dentistry have led to a wide array of teeth whitening options for patients. Today there are now several ways in which a patient can achieve a brighter and whiter smile.
It is important to remember if you are looking to improve your smile through teeth whitening that this will only be a temporary fix, as over time stains and discoloration may come back. Additionally, teeth whitening or bleaching only works on natural tooth enamel and so if you have had previous dental restorative procedures Dr. Nicholas Dose will have to review options to whiten these areas after bleaching the natural teeth.
Reasons For Teeth WhiteningPatients may desire or require tooth whitening for a variety of reasons. The most common of these reasons include:
|•||Normal wear to the outer layer of the tooths enamel|
|•||Fluorosis which is a result of excessive fluoridation during tooth development|
|•||Stained teeth as a result of particular lifestyle choices, certain food or beverage consumption, and even from taking certain medications|
|•||Teeth that have developed a brown or yellow hue|
Teeth Whitening ProcedureThere are many different methods that can be used to whiten teeth. Over the counter gels, toothpastes and rinses are popular among consumers, but are not very effective. If you are looking for the most effective way to brighten your smile tray whitening is recommended.
