Here at Carreon Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer whitening services to our patients.
There are many things that can affect the color of your teeth. Most people believe discoloration is due to plaque, but that is not always the case. You might notice that your teeth become discolored due to the food and drinks you consume. Using tobacco can really stain your teeth. Sometimes medications and injuries can change the color of your teeth.
Most teeth whitening products use bleach. This breaks the stains up into smaller pieces, making them harder to see so your teeth look brighter. However, bleaches do not work on all teeth so it is important to talk to us before you bleach your teeth. Bleach doesn’t work on caps, veneers, crowns, or fillings that were originally made to match your teeth’s natural color.
There are many options for teeth whitening including toothpastes, at-home bleaching, and bleaching in our office. Since each one works differently (and has different results), you should talk to us before you decide to bleach your teeth.
If you have any questions about teeth whitening, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (303) 933-2066.
