A bright smile can stand out in a crowd and enhance your confidence. If you are experiencing tooth discoloration, teeth whitening can be a great option for you.

There are various reasons that teeth can be discolored. The discoloration is caused by tobacco, coffee, sugary drinks and food, or aging. Commit to your regular oral hygiene routine, you can minimize and prevent discoloration damage.

Sticky strips or gel-filled trays are designed to whiten your teeth with hydrogen peroxide. This technique does a great job lightening teeth and removing stains. The American Dental Association (ADA) has also confirmed that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and effective. The ADA also recommended that you only use a bleaching product after consulting with your dental provider. This is important for patients with many fillings, crowns, and dark stains on their teeth.

We can carefully examine your teeth to see if bleaching is the most effective treatment for you. Teeth whitening products can be good tools for a brighter smile, but they aren’t a substitute for good dental hygiene.
