Teeth Whitening is a Cosmetic dental procedure that can help improve the appearance of a smile by changing the current shade of teeth to a whiter shade. This procedure is safe, non-permanent, and effectively the quickest way to a healthier looking smile.
Many people bleach their teeth before important interviews, for weddings, before going back to school, and other significant occasions, but here are the reasons why they might do it:
- Fluorosis - During tooth development, if a child ingests fluoride in amounts that are greater than their body can handle, Fluorosis may occur. White spots, brown stains, and pitting (mottling) on the teeth is an indication of fluoridation. Overexposure to Fluoride may occur at any age, but the risk is higher at a younger age.
- Natural Color - Sometimes, patients just don't like the natural color of their teeth and want to add some flare to their smile. This is a great reason to whiten teeth!
- Yellow, Brown, Stained Teeth - Stained teeth can look shades whiter with tooth whitening. Tobacco use or coffee stains, as well as stains from medications, like Tetracycline, can be improved with teeth whitening.
