Teeth Whitening In Charlotte, NC
Maintaining a white smile is harder than it seems. The use of tobacco, consumption of dark-colored liquids such as cola, coffee, red wine and some times poor hygiene habits, can all contribute to stubborn tooth stains and discoloration. The natural aging process can also cause teeth to appear dingy as the enamel thins, exposing the darker dentin layer of tooth structure. Tooth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that is highly effective at eliminating surface stains and discoloration that affect the outer enamel.
Types of Teeth Whitening
Enhance the look of your smile by undergoing a dental treatment that can make your teeth up to seven shades whiter. Most types of extrinsic stains can easily be removed using a bleaching agent deemed safe for dental use. However, intrinsic stains can be more difficult to remove, as these types of stains develop inside the tooth.
There are two main types of teeth whitening available:
