Brushing and flossing are simple ways to keep your teeth bright, white, and healthy. Still, if you might feel like your smile lacks some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they’d most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening.
Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
It’s important to talk to your dentist before deciding to whiten your teeth, as whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. Make your appointment today!Make an Appointment
