What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a procedure that removes stains and discoloration from teeth.
Discoloration can be the result of a combination of things: genetics, poor oral hygiene, accidents, medication, the effects of aging, smoking, or certain foods.
Dr. Maryam Taat can change all this and give you a “Movie Star” smile within one hour. Teeth that are discolored because of tetracycline or excessive fluoride are not good candidates for the whitening procedure.
Whitening techniques will only work for tetracycline staining if the discoloration is very mild. Veneers are the best solution for more severe tetracycline cases. Once you reach our office, Dr. Taat will let you know what the best solution for you is.
Tooth Whitening Procedure
First, we check the teeth for cavities as the whitening gel can cause serious damage if it leaks into these areas. If cavities are found, they must be repaired before tooth whitening takes place. If there are no cavities, we will begin the whitening process. The process is quick, easy, and comfortable. Under the supervision of Dr. Taat, our whitening treatments are completely safe and will not harm teeth or gums. Our whitening system lasts a long time. This means you will experience very little whitening loss over time if you maintain good dental habits.
