Teeth Whitening

As you age, your teeth are exposed to foods and drinks that stain them. Though your teeth may be perfectly healthy, they can appear damaged and make you look older. Fortunately, if you have deep stains or want to achieve a brighter smile quickly, Sandwich Dental Associates in Cape Cod has teeth-whitening options that can help you acquire a beautiful, youthful-looking, bright smile.

Types of Tooth Stains

Did you know there are two types of tooth stains? Extrinsic stains are yellow or brown, and appear on the outside surfaces of teeth. Intrinsic are gray or blue and develop on the insides of your teeth. While some surface stains might be slightly resolved with over-the-counter solutions, a dental cleaning in our office is one of the safest and most effective ways to brighten your smile!
