Teeth whitening (sometimes referred to as bleaching) is a non-invasive and simple way to noticeably enhance your smile. Teeth whitening is used to lighten the color of your teeth, giving you a brighter, more radiant smile. Our caring dentist, Dr. Laura B. Ousley, may suggest teeth whitening if your teeth are discolored due to factors such as:
- Smoking and tobacco use
- Consumption of certain drinks, such as tea, wine, coffee, and soda, as well as highly pigmented foods like berries
- Certain medications, such as tetracycline
- The natural aging process
It is normal for your teeth to become yellowed as you age; through professional teeth whitening in Guthrie and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, you can gain a whiter smile that revitalizes your entire appearance. Teeth whitening works by using a special whitening gel. This gel is placed in custom-made whitening trays that fit over your teeth. By wearing these trays for a short period of time every day over two weeks, you can achieve a smile that is noticeably whiter.
