What Is Tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most effective cosmetic dental procedures because it can tremendously improve how your teeth seem like.

Whitening is not a single-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

The most usual reasons for teeth to get discoloration or stained are:

  • Consuming tobacco
  • Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cold drinks, tea and red wine etc
  • Not taking proper care of your teeth
  • Daily non brushing habit
  • Properly non cleaning habit after meals

How It’s Done

  • There are two main types of whitening procedures. Vital whitening is performed on teeth that have live nerves. Non-vital whitening is done on a tooth that has had root-canal treatment and no longer has a live nerve.

When to Call a Professional

When you feel your teeth would benefit from whitening, contact your dentist to discuss the exact procedure.
