Teeth Whitening is actually a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discolored teeth to a healthy, natural color. Don't be misled by unproven and ineffective over-the-counter whitening solutions. Our office uses an advanced procedure that is only available from your dentist.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Teeth become discolored for different reasons:

  • Frequently drinking coffee, tea, or colas.
  • Some antibiotics may darken developing teeth in children.
  • Aging - The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth gradually darkens with age.
  • Use of tobacco products.
  • Accidents - If a tooth has been traumatized, sometimes the nerve will gradually "die," and the tooth becomes dark.
  • After Root Canal Therapy, a tooth will generally darken.

Is Whitening Safe?

Whitening is very safe. We use a product that has been proven safe when used under the direction of a dentist.

Is Whitening For Me?

Dr. Nelams will evaluate your teeth and smile to determine whether whitening is right for you. In some cases a different cosmetic procedure may better meet your expectations, but whitening is a safe, fast and easy process that is effective for almost everyone!
