Over time, you may have noticed that your teeth are not quite as bright and white as they once were. Most people experience tooth yellowing, dulling, and discoloration to one degree or another as the years pass. This may be caused by a variety of habits and lifestyle factors, such as:
- Smoking and other types of tobacco use
- The use of certain medications
- Consuming certain foods and beverages, including wine, soda, tea, and coffee
- The natural aging process
- Certain illnesses
- Poor oral hygiene and dental care
If your teeth have been dulled and darkened by these or other factors, you may feel self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. At Smiles Dental, we are pleased to offer professional teeth whitening to lighten your teeth and restore your bright, white smile. Teeth whitening involves using a strong yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of the teeth. This works to gently bleach away discoloration and stains from the teeth, leaving your smile more brilliantly white. While most people’s results last for at least a few months, you may want whitening touch-ups in the future to keep your smile bright. For more information about professional teeth whitening in Camas, Washington, we invite you to call or visit our dentists, Dr. King, and Dr. Jardine, today. We are eager to help you achieve a beautiful white smile you love to show off!
