**Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
**Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
**Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Reasons for Teeth Whitening:
Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
Yellow, brown stained teeth.
What does Teeth Whitening involve?
This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At first Dr. Arakelian would like for his guests to come in for a free consultation so that he may be able to see if they are a candidate for our Whitening System. If so, the second appointment would be to start the one hour Laser Whitening treatment for a satisfacotry result for our guest. Please call in today and someone would love to schedule you your free consultation!!
