How do I know if teeth whitening is for me?

As we age, we may start to notice that our teeth become more yellow or dull no matter how much we brush and floss. 

The good news is that you can invigorate your tooth color and bring it back to its natural whiteness. 

How Teeth Whitening Works

You can't see it, but your enamel has pores that can allow food particles to enter and make your smile appear dull. Aging thins our enamel out, and the layer of yellow dentin more visible. Additionally, what we eat and drink can stain our teeth. Smoking is also a common reason for yellowing teeth. 

Professional teeth whitening can remove all these stains and whiten your smile by six to eight shades, and all of this can be done on your lunch hour. We use Boost whitening for in-office treatments. If you prefer the convenience of whitening your teeth at home, we offer take-home whitening kits for your convenience. We use Opalescence teeth whitening for at-home use.

At Arcadia Dentistry, Dr. Milana will usually recommend a dental cleaning prior to the whitening treatment. This gives your teeth a uniform whiteness so that you have a bright, polished smile.
