The whiter the teeth the better the smile, at least that is what some people say. We strive for white and healthy teeth but that is not always easy to achieve. Here at Tree City Family Dental, we can make your white teeth a possibility. Teeth whitening helps improve the overall look of your teeth by getting rid of discoloration and stains that have made their mark on your teeth over time.

How Teeth Whitening Works

Teeth whitening is not rocket science. Basically, we are targeting the enamel in your teeth and trying to bring that natural white color back. How it works is that the natural color gets combined with the color of the dentin, which is the layer of your tooth that is directly below the enamel layer so we can naturally whiten your teeth. It is simple and pain-free therefore nothing is standing in the way of you and a brighter smile.

Why Your Teeth Aren’t White and Bright

There are many reasons why your smile might not be as bright as it used to be or as bright as you might wish it was. Here are some of the main causes;

  • Smoking or tobacco
  • Dark-colored drinks (tea, wine, coffee, etc.)
  • Medications (some medications have side effects of causing dental damage)
  • Natural age/ wear and tear over the years
  • Poor dental care (not keeping up on your oral hygiene)

These are just a few of the reasons that your teeth might be looking dim as of late. But that is a simple and easy fix. Start using a stain removal toothpaste that is not damaging to your enamel. Sign up for at-home teeth whitening treatments so you can do it in the convenience of your own home. And of course, our in-office treatments are quick and easy. With just a couple of treatments, you will see a big difference.
