What is Teeth Whitening?

Tooth whitening enhances the brightness of natural teeth, but it’s not for everyone. Discuss it with your dentist before you take action, especially if you have any of the following issues:

  • Discolored or sensitive teeth
  • White spots or decay on your teeth
  • Infected gums
  • A bridge, crown or other dental work – especially involving front teeth

Types of Teeth Whitening

If your Dentist agrees that you are a candidate for tooth whitening, you can choose from any of the following to get your teeth as white as you want them to be:

  • Over-the-Counter
  • Dentist-Supervised
  • In-Office Treatment

The lifespan of whitened teeth can range from 4-12 months, depending on the type of treatment used and your consumption of food and drink that can easily stain teeth (such as blueberries, coffee, and tea). To keep your teeth their whitest without undergoing tooth whitening treatment, practice good oral hygiene.
