Bleaching is a common and popular process used to whiten teeth. Some people get their teeth bleached to make stains disappear, while others just want a whiter shade.
Discoloration occurs under the enamel and can be caused by medication, coffee, tea and cigarettes. Discoloration also can be hereditary or due simply to getting older.
Most of our patients prefer to have their teeth whitened in the office. We use a system call Zoom!. It is the same one used by Extreme Makeover on ABC. People like this because it is fast and convenient. The typical whitening process is completed in about an hour.
