If you want to take the next step in optimising your smile, a cosmetic dental procedure might be the right way to go. But which procedure? Over the following weeks we will go into more detail about one cosmetic dental procedure. This week, we’ll take a look at teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening has been a procedure that has been perfected over thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians. Today, our whitening process has improved immensely since then. It’s natural that our teeth will turn yellow as we age, because the enamel coating can wear down, revealing more of the yellow insides of the tooth, also known as dentin. Teeth can also become stained from eating and drinking things such as berries, coffee, tea, wine, and of course, smoking.

If you believe that your smile isn’t what it once was, we can restore your shine and smile with our range of whitening options depending on your current needs and circumstances. Whitening services can include from whitening gel, UV/LED whitening, and laser whitening. Your dentist will advise you on the best way to maintain your perfect smile after the whitening process. Remember that whitening is no substitute for regular dental care, and that the stains can always return if you’re not careful!

Because teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, it’s worth looking into whether your insurance plan will cover it. Contact us at TLC 4 GUMS to learn more about our cosmetic procedures and find out if teeth whitening is the right option for your smile restoration!
