Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. Most popular methods involve either an in-office treatment or at-home whitening trays that will whiten teeth dramatically.
Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate the replacement of fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations.
Tooth whitening is not permanent and a touch-up maybe needed after several years. Whitening is recommended more frequently for people who smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
