One of the requests that our patients frequently convey to us is whiter teeth. As you evaluate your options, learn about the condition of your entire mouth, their suitability for whitening, and how they might affect your teeth. It is important that you consult our clinic beforehand.
Many people think that the discoloration of the teeth is caused by plaque or dirt. But it can affect the color of your teeth, including food, drink, tobacco, age, injury, and medications. Understanding what causes discoloration is important for effectively whitening your teeth.
Teeth whitening products use bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) to break down stains into smaller pieces, which can make your teeth brighter. These bleaches may not be effective on all teeth. In our clinic, your eligibility assessment and pre-treatment information are provided by the physician.
Teeth whitening options often include whitening toothpastes, at-home bleaching, and in-office bleaching. Of course, efficacy, safety, and results vary widely between products, so if you're considering these options, you can schedule a free inspection.
