Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with a simple “whitening” procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is not a one size fits all undertaking. Dr. Hastings or your hygienist will take the time to explain the process and products we offer.
Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth and the ingredients and their strength vary, it’s better to consult your hygienist before starting a whitening routine and use products that our practice recommends.
