What is teeth whitening?
It is no secret that one of the most popular and oft-requested cosmetic treatments is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the process used by our dentist to improve the color of your tooth enamel. We are able to use teeth whitening in Fairbanks, Alaska, to improve your natural tooth color and lighten deep-rooted stains and discoloration.
What stains teeth?
Some of the most common causes of stains and discoloration treated by our dentist are:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Diets rich in sugary and acidic foods
- Dark-colored drinks, such as coffee, wine, and tea
- Certain medications and illnesses
- Old metal dental restorations
- Smoking and tobacco use
