Your teeth are a valuable addition to your appearance, as they are often one of the first things people notice. A bright white smile helps you meet new people, introduce yourself and make new friends at any age. If your teeth are not as white as you would like or your teeth have been damaged, you don’t have to hide your smile. Modern Family Dental Care provides teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry to restore and revitalize your smile.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a fast and simple treatment to reduce the visibility of stains that accumulate over time on teeth. Repeated exposure to foods, drinks or smoking can cause teeth to lose their original shine and become dull or stained. Teeth whitening restores the original brightness of teeth and reduces the visibility of stains or discolorations.
Why Should I get my Teeth Whitened?
While many whitening products exist that can be used at home, having the procedure done at an office is safer and will result in better outcomes. The whitening agents used by dentists are much stronger and work faster; because of the composition of the substances used, the rest of the mouth, including the enamel on your teeth, is protected from the strength of the whitening agents. Your mouth can be safely transformed in a single office visit.
- Remove Stains. Whitening your teeth can help remove stains and discoloration caused by soda, coffee, wine or smoking.
- Non-Surgical. Teeth whitening is essentially a pain and risk-free solution for a brighter smile.

Teeth Whitening FAQs
1) What are the side effects of teeth whitening?
Tooth sensitivity is a common side effect of whitening. However, any sensitivity you may experience is not permanent and should subside.
2) Can I whiten veneers?
Teeth whitening is only effective on natural teeth. Veneers are made out of porcelain; therefore, they cannot be whitened.
3) How long will my teeth stay white after treatment?
Results from whitening treatments typically last for around 6 months to one year. For maintenance, it is recommended to have touch ups approximately every 4 to 6 months.
