If you want a brighter, whiter smile, teeth whitening may be for you. In Leawood, Kansas, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services offered. Over the course of a lifetime, daily eating and lifestyle habits can often lead to stained, discolored teeth. Causes of discoloration include:
- Food and drink, such as coffee, wine, colas, and highly acidic fruits and vegetables
- Chewing and smoking tobacco products
- Poor dental hygiene
- Certain medications
- Old or outdated dental treatments
- Age of the tooth
Teeth whitening aims to reverse this process by gently bleaching the enamel of your tooth. Our talented dental team, led by Dr. Huber, provides high quality teeth whitening for a smile you will want to share. Teeth whitening utilizes whitening agents, most often carbamide peroxide, to lighten teeth by multiple shades. When activated, usually by water or a specialized light, these agents release hydrogen peroxide, which sinks into enamel and gently bleaches it.
Teeth whitening is considered safe to use for most patients. Dr. Huber will sit down with you and determine what will be the best way to whiten your teeth.
