is a cosmetic dental treatment done to improve the appearance of teeth. Teeth are whitened to remove the effects of coffee, cigarettes, and other substances that permanently stain or discolor teeth. Medications such as antibiotics like tetracycline may discolor your teeth. Fluorosis, a condition caused by absorbing too much fluoride, could affect tooth color. Furthermore, aging also causes teeth to lose their bright color.
Teeth are whitened by the use of bleach or other materials. The treatment may be done at home with Dr. Sanchez's
guidance. Tools for self-treatment include bleaching trays designed by Dr. Sanchez, gels that are applied to the teeth and fluoride toothpaste.
