What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process that uses various methods to remove natural staining from teeth. If teeth appear yellowed, a bleaching treatment should help whiten them. If teeth are discolored and look grayish or brownish, your dentist may recommend other options for whitening.

What are my teeth whitening options?

You've seen the ads for whitening strips and toothpastes - and you might have tried some different products. Whitening under the supervision of a professional is safer and often more effective than over-the-counter treatments. Professional whitening treatments can include:

  • Take-home whitening trays
  • Whitening trays specifically molded to your teeth
  • In-office whitening treatment
  • Porcelain veneers

There are different methods for teeth whitening - from over-the-counter white strips to porcelain veneers, the choices can be overwhelming. Your Midtown Atlanta dentist can help navigate the different options, and provide professional teeth whitening kits or services that may work better for you.

What causes stained teeth?

The American Dental Association (ADA) cites the following causes for stained teeth:

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Certain foods like coffee, cola, and red wine
  • Natural yellowing related to age

Why whiten?

Patients seek teeth whitening treatment for many reasons. The most common reason is a renewed sense of self-confidence in your smile. Other reasons for whitening include:

  • Special events. Weddings and reunions are common reasons people whiten their teeth.
  • Job interviews. Make a better first impression with a noticeable, shiny smile.

  • Youthfulness. Because teeth naturally yellow over time, whiter teeth are often associated with youth.
