Teeth Whitening

Whiter teeth can make you look younger and healthier. No wonder so many people want whiter teeth! At Northwestern Family Dental Care, we offer professional teeth whitening services for the ultimate results in teeth whitening. Better yet, our teeth whitening system can be completed in the comfort of your own home.

Opalescence Take Home Kits

With the Opalescence take-home teeth whitening kits, you will have at your disposal one of the most reliable and effective teeth whitening kits around. In fact, Opalescence can even restore whiteness to teeth that have been discolored by the antibiotic tetracycline. Over-the-counter whitening strips are not as effective and can cause tooth sensitivity.

The take-home system consists of whitening trays and gel. The gel penetrates the teeth and whitens them at the molecular level.

Reasons Why Teeth Might Need to Be Whitened

While teeth whitening is a common practice for many people with regular oral hygiene routines, those same people might not be aware of the reasons why their teeth are no longer as white as they used to be. There are actually many reasons why teeth might become discolored, and some discoloration is extremely difficult and requires professional whitening procedures. Here are a few reasons for tooth discoloration:

  • Artificial drinks and some natural fruit juices can leave stains on the teeth.
  • There are certain types of food that have potent pigments.
  • Tobacco products are well known for causing teeth stains.
  • Some medications, like the antibiotic tetracycline, have been known to cause teeth stains.
  • Aging can lead to a natural dark pigment on the teeth.
  • Trauma to the teeth can also lead to discoloration.
