Tooth whitening or bleaching  is generally the first step in restoring your smile. A simple restorative dentistry procedure, whitening can take years of yellow off of your enamel, enhancing the beauty of your teeth.

White teeth are part of a healthy smile, and are an important aesthetic element that many people go to great lengths to maintain. However, smoking, alcoholic beverages, and caffeine consumption can help to decay tooth enamel, giving your teeth a yellowish appearance. It is for this reason that restorative procedures such as tooth whitening are a common part of dentistry.

Tooth whitening is not permanent.  A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Reasons for tooth whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer (enamel)
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth
