Having a bright white smile comes with countless benefits ranging from better social experiences to getting better treatment in work situations. AsTeeth Whitening superficial as it may seem, people really do place a high value on the way your teeth look -- especially at first meetings. Explore that various options you have for whitening your teeth with Jackson, MI dentist Dr. Constance E. Smith, D.D.S. of Connect, Create, Smile Family and Cosmetic Dentistry so that you can put your very best smile forward.

What Causes Yellowing Teeth?
Human teeth are made of calcium, phosphorus and other hard materials. When healthy they are strong, durable and resistant to damage, but over time the teeth can yellow and even take on a brownish tint for a variety of reasons. The most common cause of yellowing teeth is eating or drinking certain foods that are allowed to penetrate the enamel. Coffee, tea, wine, tomato sauce, berries and similar foods are often the worst culprits. Another common reason is the natural process of aging -- especially when the teeth aren’t properly maintained.

Tooth Whitening Options
The natural solution to yellowing teeth is to get them whitened using a bleaching agent. Over the counter solutions don't always give patients the level of whitening power that they need. If you want significant results, you have two main options for getting your teeth whitened. The first option is to ask Jackson, MI dentist Dr. Smith to prescribe you a take-home dental kit so that you can do it yourself. The process takes several weeks. The other, often more popular, option is to have your teeth whitening session done at the dentist's office. The dentist uses a professional grade bleaching agent and tools that give fast results (usually under an hour).
