Cosmetic teeth whitening is one of the most popular and minimally invasive ways to improve the appearance of your smile.

Advances in bleaching and laser technology make it possible for you to lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in just one clinic visit.

An attractive smile can take you a long way. So what happens when your pearly whites aren’t so pearly and white anymore? After all those years of eating, and smoking and drinking tea or coffee or wine, teeth can lose their brilliance.

At Dr. Gowd’s Dental Hospital, we have a variety of methods for restoring a bright white smile, including porcelain veneers, composite bonding, dental implants and whitening, also known as bleaching. But, with all the advances made in general dentistry to enhance the appearance of the teeth, whitening is the easiest and effective. The whitening of teeth is safe and easy, and more affordable than ever before. Because of these reasons and more, whitening has become very popular.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. The teeth whitening process eliminates teeth discoloration and stains on the teeth, and can also brighten the natural pigmentation of the teeth. The degree of improvement will depend upon how severely the teeth are stained or discolored as well as the nature of the stains. When teeth are brown or yellow due to coffee, tea, or smoking, stains will generally lighten four to five shades. Teeth that are gray due to natural pigmentation or antibiotics use will lighten two to three shades.

Regardless, your teeth will be noticeably brighter after teeth whitening. While there are a number of over-the-counter teeth whitening methods that make various claims, only a dental professional can recommend the most effective teeth whitening treatment for you.
