Teeth Whitening Henry County
Everyone deserves to feel proud of their smile
Cosmetic dentistry has become a vital part of the dental profession. People choose cosmetic dental procedures for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite, crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance with the ultimate goal of restoring a beautiful smile.
Common cosmetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshapen, discolored, chipped, or missing teeth. They can also be used to change the overall shape of teeth from teeth that are too long, too short, or have gaps. If you’re uncertain about your teeth, feel embarrassed when you smile, or just always wanted whiter or straighter teeth, these are just a few of the many reasons you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry!

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smiles of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth’s enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee, tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.
More and more people today are choosing teeth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.
Some commercially available “whitening toothpastes” can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel.
Whitening agents can change the color of your teeth, but are only effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains.
These products are also not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bondings may be more appropriate in this case).
Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method. Our team is here to guide you to a whiter & brighter smile!

Enhancing Your Smile
Veneers can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked, and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth.
Another process, called bonding, can enhance the appearance of teeth and is done with composite materials. Bonding provides similar results as veneers and look much like the natural enamel of your tooth. They are shaped to the tooth, hardened with a blue light, and polished.
What are Composites and Why Should I Choose Them?
More and more people have been choosing tooth-colored fillings over traditional amalgam (silver) fillings in recent years. Composite resin has been growing in popularity in cosmetic dentistry for aesthetic reasons as well as for structural benefits for the tooth. Aesthetically, they are much more attractive since they match the color and appearance of a natural tooth. Unlike amalgam fillings, less drilling of the tooth is required, and they harden in seconds. If you keep up with your daily oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly, these composites can last just as long as traditional amalgams.
