Teeth whitening is a highly effective, cost-efficient, and safe cosmetic treatment that can make a positive impact on a patient’s smile. Inwood, WV cosmetic dentist Dr. Kenneth Banks offers teeth whitening options so that patients may enjoy a brighter, whiter and refreshed smile. Teeth whitening can take years off of the appearance of a smile improving confidence and aesthetics.
Why Do Teeth Become Discolored?
Teeth whitening has been used cosmetically in dentistry for many years, offering a quick and economical smile makeover. Dr. Banks is highly trained in administering and treating patients looking to whiten and brighten their smile and can help you to choose the most suitable treatment option for your needs. Teeth naturally become discolored during the aging process, and many patients seek ways to effectively brighten their smile for a more youthful appearance. Other common causes of changes in tooth color include:
Medical condition, certain medications
Smoking, tobacco use
Dark foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea and sodas
Dr. Banks will examine your teeth and discuss your oral health and lifestyle habits to be sure a tooth whitening treatment is best for you and will meet your needs and goals. For patients whose teeth may not respond to a professional teeth whitening procedure, Dr. Banks offers a range of cosmetic treatments that can provide a lasting white smile.
