Patients whose teeth are chipped or cracked in addition to being discolored may be better candidates for porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves removing stains and discoloration from the surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance.
It is a simple and non-invasive procedure that can be done in a dental office or at home with the use of over-the-counter-whitening products. The process usually involves applying a bleaching agent to the teeth, which breaks down stains and lightens the tooth enamel.
The Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening offers a range of benefits that can enhance both your appearance and your confidence. It can effectively remove stains and discoloration and make your teeth appear brighter and more youthful.
A brighter smile can also boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social and professional situations. Additionally, teeth whitening is a relatively affordable cosmetic dental procedure that can be done quickly and easily.
Overall, teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the look of your smile and help you feel more confident in your everyday life.

Why should I talk to my dentist before teeth whitening?
Since some teeth whiteners can lead to damage and even tooth sensitivity, it’s important to have an initial consultation with your dentist. When you visit a Dental Choice office, we can discuss your desires, examine your teeth to see if whitening is a good option and help you choose the best product to restore your smile.
How long will the results last?
This varies from patient to patient and depends on the types of foods and drinks you consume in your daily diet. This also depends on your general oral hygiene practices. The results of teeth whitening should last up to one year. Again, depending on your daily habits, periodic treatments may be recommended for those who smoke or consume coffee, red wine, colas and other staining foods or beverages. Most people whiten again every six months.
