Whitening/Bleaching Teeth in Austin, TX
Whitening and Bleaching Teeth
Teeth whitening can improve the appearance of any smile. The process includes using bleach or other materials to make teeth look whiter. Materials are used to remove stains or other discoloration from the tooth surface.
The effects of coffee, cigarettes, and other substances that permanently stain or discolor teeth can be removed with teeth whitening. Medications and/or antibiotics like tetracycline may discolor teeth.
Fluorosis, a condition caused by absorbing too much fluoride, can affect tooth color. Aging is another factor that causes teeth to loose their bright, white color. To provide our patients with the healthiest and most beautiful smile, we offer 3 types of teeth whitening:
