What is teeth whitening?

Over the course of your lifetime, the color of your tooth enamel naturally changes and is affected by multiple factors. Certain lifestyle and eating habits can also cause staining and discoloration. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment that aims to improve the color of your teeth for a whiter, brighter smile.


What stains teeth?

There are many things that affect your tooth enamel every day without you even realizing it. Some of the most common causes of stains include:


  • Age
  • Fluorosis
  • Smoking
  • Sugary foods
  • Acidic foods
  • Coffee, wine, and tea
  • Old dental restorations
  • Poor oral hygiene


No matter the cause of discoloration, we have a solution to transform your smile!
