Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Do they look dingy, yellowed and lack sparkle?

While the enamel on your teeth is the strongest substance in your body, it is also very porous and prone to staining. Common causes of teeth staining are drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking. The aging process is also a cause of tooth discoloration and bleaching is a fast, affordable way to help turn back the hands of time. At Mountain View Dentistry we do not over whiten. Our whitening patients look healthy and naturally beautiful – as no one wants that “Chiclets” look.

Whitening toothpastes may be used to help minimize surface stains, but their abrasive ingredients can wear down enamel and expose the naturally occurring yellow-colored tooth structure underneath (dentin). That is why professional tooth whitening is the best method for permanently removing ingrained stains, whitening your teeth and adding sparkle to your smile.

Many methods of professional tooth whitening are available. The most expeditious effective of these is to place a bleaching agent on the teeth and activate it through the use of a high intensity light. At Mountain View Dentistry we offer ZOOM 1hr whitening as seen on “Extreme Makeover”. Done in a professional setting, this method will allow your teeth to appear – as many as six to eight shades lighter. After the bleaching session, you can use your custom-made at-home bleaching trays to ‘touch up’ your teeth if their coloring is stained again in the future.

 Bleaching is an easy, convenient and affordable way to brighten your smile.
