What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a special dental treatment that transforms stained, aged, or discolored teeth. As you age, so does your smile; certain lifestyles and eating habits can damage your tooth enamel further. Causes of discoloration or stains include:

  • Natural aging
  • Using tobacco products
  • Consuming high levels of sugar
  • Drinking wine, coffee, or dark-colored soda
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain illnesses and medications
  • Old dental restorations

No matter the reason for your discolored smile, we have the solution to change it. Our teeth whitening treatments reverse this damage for a whiter, more beautiful smile.
