Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
  • Works on people of all ages
  • Improves a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive

Considerations to Tooth Whitening

Smoking should be stopped before teeth are bleached. Smoking can cause tissue damage on teeth and may defeat the effect of whitening. The best candidates for whitening are those with stains caused by coffee, tobacco or aging.

Whitening will not correct certain forms of discoloration. For these cases, a dentist may recommend veneers instead which cover the entire tooth. Teeth with prosthetics, bonding, tooth-colored fillings will not bleach. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best.

The degree of whiteness will vary from individual to individual depending on the condition of the teeth, nature of the stain and individual reaction to the whitening agent.
