Teeth will naturally lose their brightness over time. Drinking coffee or tea, or using tobacco, as well as certain childhood medications can cause teeth to discolor or darken even faster than normal. Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth.

Invisalign®


Clear aligner

Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact tooth movements our office plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.

Veneers


Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural appearance of teeth. To place a veneer, a thin layer of the original tooth enamel must be removed. Afterward, an adhesive layer is placed between the prepared tooth and the veneer. The adhesive is then hardened with the use of a specialized curing light.

How do celebrities get their teeth so white?


For women, they have the advantage of using lipsticks to enhance their white smile.  A trick is to stay away from lipsticks that have an orange hue and favor colors that are in the blue-red category as well as dark red. One of our favorites lipsticks to enhance the white color of teeth is Chili by Mac as well as Ruby Woo.  For the rest of us eating healthy snacks reach for cauliflower and broccoli florets, carrots, and apples. These crunch foods will help keep plaque and stain to a minimum thereby showing off your pearly whites.
