At our office caffeine is an integral part of our day. Our caffeine fix usually comes in the form of coffee or tea. Unfortunately those beverages are known to discolor the natural whiteness of our teeth. If you can related to our need for caffinated beverages, let us help restore your pearly whites!
Most people choose to whiten their teeth because of important life events or just to improve their self confidence. Our office offers patients professional whitening strips or custom trays, but we like to understand our patient's expectations before making a recommendation.
Office Products vs. Over-the-Counter (OTC)
Generally office whitening products are stronger than what can be purchased at a drug or retail store (OTC). If a patient already has sensitive teeth, we can make recommendations for OTC products that will meet their desired level of whiteness. We only use safe, quality products in our office that won't permanently damage a patient's enamel. Unfortunately the same can not be said for a majority of products bought online which we caution patients.
Whatever option you choose, remember that nothing artificial (fillings, caps, veneers) can be whitened.
