Tooth Whitening – Is it for me?

Who doesn’t want a nice, white smile?  There are many products on the market to help improve your looks. While many people are pleased with the results the get from brushing twice daily, flossing between the teeth and regular visits to their dentist for cleanings, some are interested in a brighter smile.

As with any dental procedure, you should start by talking to your dentist and seeking their advise as to what would be best for you.  According to the American Dental Association’s website,

“Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellowish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-colored teeth may bleach less well, and grayish-hued teeth may not bleach well at all. Likewise, bleaching may not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth. The whitener will not affect the color of these materials, and they will stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.”

Tooth whitening falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry and Dr. Brogdon, a cosmetic dentist,  is highly qualified to perform cosmetic procedures that will benefit the appearance and health of your teeth.  Contact our office to see what we can do to help you have the dazzling smile you want.
