What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a special cosmetic treatment that is used to whiten teeth that have become stained, yellowed, or discolored. Quick and effective, teeth whitening in Marietta, Georgia is one of the most-requested cosmetic treatments at our dental office. There are many reasons why your smile may become stained or discolored. Common causes include:

  • Age
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Sugary, highly pigmented, or highly acidic foods
  • Dark-colored beverages, such as coffee, wine, or soda
  • Certain illnesses and medication, such as tetracycline
  • Fluorosis

There are many types of teeth whitening available, and Dr. James M. Kinney, our talented dentist, will be able to determine which method will help you achieve the results you are looking for. Generally, teeth whitening is done in our office or at home using customized plastic trays. A special whitening gel is applied topically to your teeth and allowed to absorb into your tooth enamel. This gel gently bleaches away deep-rooted stains and discoloration to help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
