Teeth naturally darken and stain over time, aging is a major cause of yellowing teeth. Other factors such as colored beverages like coffee and red wine, iron supplements, some antibiotics and other medications, and smoking can also cause teeth to stain in younger individuals as well. Part of the image of a confident, successful man or woman includes a bright white smile, and there are several options to help you achieve this. One option is in-office teeth whitening such as the Zoom! Whitening system used by Aesthetic Dentistry of Arrowhead. Another option is a take home whitening kit that allows you to bleach your teeth with professional strength whitening solution from the comfort of your own home.
Home teeth bleaching systems allow you to wear a custom fit tray on your upper and lower teeth that you add a thin layer of hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to the inside of. Wearing these trays for the recommended length of time each day bleaches your teeth for a brighter, whiter smile.
