What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of our cosmetic dental treatments that can make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your smile. Through teeth whitening, we can lighten the appearance of yellowing, staining, and spotting on the surface of the teeth. Over time, your teeth have likely experienced discoloration and darkening to one degree or another because of factors like:

  • Aging
  • Certain foods and drinks, such as wine, tea, coffee, and soda
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Illness
  • Fluorosis
  • Tobacco use
  • Certain medications

Teeth whitening involves a gentle bleaching process that can give your smile a bright, inviting look.

How can I whiten my teeth?

If you have noticed your teeth becoming yellowed, darkened, or discolored, we recommend professional teeth whitening in Greenville, North Carolina. While over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available, they typically result in minimal results that leave you feeling disappointed. Professional teeth whitening provides aesthetic, noticeable results in just one or two treatments. If you are interested in enhancing your smile through teeth whitening, we welcome you to call or visit Dr. Natalie B. McCarthy’s dental office today. Our dentist and dental team will be happy to schedule your consultation and answer any questions you may have.
