DOES TEETH WHITENING WORK?
Whitening Teeth procedures effectively restore the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. A type of stain-caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don’t help. More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.
Home Teeth Whitening
Some commercially available “whitening toothpastes” can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these home teeth whitening products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel. Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method for whitening your teeth; done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as they are monitored and directions followed closely.
