As we age, our teeth often become darker due to changes in the tooth’s mineral structure. Teeth can also be stained by tobacco use, bacteria, certain medications and our diet. Whitening, or dental bleaching, is a cosmetic service we offer to lighten the teeth.
We offer two different whitening systems, Discus Dental’s DayWhite/NiteWhite and Opalescence’s Tres White. Both use carbamide peroxide in gel form which release oxygen and greatly reduce the stains on your teeth. There are very few side effects from whitening. The most common side effect is increased tooth sensitivity, which is usually temporary.
