For a Smile That Sparkles Like New
Your smile is one of your most important features. A sparkling smile that looks like new makes many of our patients more confident. Professional teeth whitening is an easy way to remove stains and get your smile several shades whiter.
Why Teeth Lose Their Shine
Many patients believe discolored teeth are the result of poor oral hygiene. While oral care does play a role in the yellowing of teeth, there are a variety of other factors that can cause your teeth to become dingy including:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Certain medications
- Natural dulling due to aging
- Smoking tobacco
- Consuming staining foods and drinks such as berries, coffee, or wine

Some celebrities have teeth whitening treatments, but one of the most popular Hollywood smile makeovers is done with porcelain veneers.
