Do you have a special day in your future? Or perhaps, you just want to look your best every day?

Tooth whitening is a great way to brighten your smile by safely lightening the color of your teeth. And the best way to do that is tooth bleaching, under your dentist’s supervision. It is not recommended that you try the over-the-counter products sold on TV or at the mall.

Tooth bleaching is successful in 90% of patients. It works best on stained teeth and is less-effective on grayed by tetracycline use, for example. It may not be recommended if your have very sensitive teeth or periodontal disease. But, do consider whitening if your teeth have darkened from age, coffee, tea or smoking.
