Teeth Whitening or bleaching is a non-invasive treatment used to lighten the appearance of natural teeth for a brighter smile. It helps to remove stains and discoloration. Teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel; crowns and restorations will not whiten with bleaching. Instead, we recommend restorations and crowns be done after bleaching, so the teeth will appear more uniform.
Teeth Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in the world because of its strong effect it has on the color of your teeth.
Dr. Macks uses custom-made trays that you wear at home to achieve the level of lightness you desire. Teeth Whitening is not permanent and does require touch-up applications. Ask us about our Forever Whitening program at your next dental visit.
The most common reasons for yellow or stained teeth are:
- Using tobacco
- Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
- Not taking good care of your teeth
