Teeth whitening is an easy, non-invasive dental treatment used to lighten the color of natural tooth enamel. It is perfect approach to improving the excellence of your smile.
There are several varieties of “whitening” alternatives that are available.
Reasons for teeth whitening:
- To remove stains on teeth
- For special events. for example, a wedding
- It is non-surgical
- It is generally affordable compared to other teeth restorative techniques.
There are several factors that affect the color change of your teeth after whitening, so it’s important to have actual expectations before and after teeth whitening. It is also good to note that there are certain foods, habits (like smoking, drinking red wine , tea), and drugs that may likely cause staining after your teeth have been whitened. It is important to avoid these as much as possible during whitening so as to maintain your white smile.
