Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a very effective and relatively inexpensive way to enhance an individual’s smile! Teeth naturally darken, yellow or brown as we age. This occurs from the foods we eat and drink. Some foods like coffee and tea do this more quickly. Extrinsic stains can be removed by regular dental cleanings. Intrinsic stains, however, require tooth whitening to lighten. Tooth whitening can make teeth appear more youthful and there are a variety of ways this can be accomplished.
Whitening toothpastes usually have abrasives that help remove stain, but can sometimes lead to tooth sensitivity in some individuals. Chemical whitening can also lead to sensitivity in some people and is best applied in a dental tray to avoid irritation to the gums. Heating the chemicals with a light has been shown to slightly increase the speed of the whitening, but not the overall effect of the whitening chemicals. Tooth whitening should not be considered a daily part of oral hygiene as too much whitening is considered unhealthy for teeth. Also remember that fillings, crowns, and porcelain will not whiten.

There are many effective and non-effective ways to brighten your smile. If you want your teeth whiter, please communicate this with your dentist who can give you informed information on the options available to you.
