Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. With a variety of effective bleaching options, anyone can achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
To learn all about what causes tooth staining and the benefits teeth whitening can offer, please continue reading the information provided below, or contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Colin Morton.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Some of the most common causes of tooth discoloration include beverages such as coffee, soft drinks, and tea. Over time, consumption of these beverages can alter the color of your teeth. Smoking is another major cause of tooth discoloration. Not only is it bad for your health, it’s bad for your smile. The same goes for chewing tobacco. Certain medications may also result in a discoloration of your teeth. This is particularly true with antibiotics. You may want to ask your physician if your prescribed drug may cause your smile to become discolored. The most unavoidable cause of tooth discoloration is aging. The natural aging process will lead to the steady and slow yellowing of one’s teeth.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
The most notable benefit of teeth whitening treatment is the improvement in your appearance. A bright, white smile makes you look healthy and attractive. Many teeth whitening patients are able to brighten teeth up to 10 shades with professional-grade treatment. Our patients are often overwhelmed by the amazing difference this simple procedure makes in their overall appearance.
Additionally, teeth whitening can boost your self-esteem. Many people with discolored teeth simply feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smile, and it hampers their self-confidence. After undergoing a teeth whitening treatment, you are less likely to feel unhappy about your appearance and how others perceive you, and that’s something worth smiling about.
“My experience with the office staff and the dental assistants and Dr. Morton, DDS, was one of the best dental experiences that I have ever had.”
Teeth whitening can also be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as dental crowns, to provide a comprehensive smile makeover that improves both the appearance and function of your smile.
