Dental patient receiving consultation regarding tooth whitening, like the services provided by AKJ Dentistry in Lubbock.

Tooth whitening has become a very popular procedure. The advancements in the science behind tooth whitening assure great results, and faster than at any time in the past.

We have a variety of strategies to restore a bright white smile through whitening techniques. Whitening is also among the easiest and most effective ways to enhance the appearance of the teeth, and is typically very safe and affordable.

What is tooth discoloration?

Discoloration can occur due to what we eat or drink, and is sometimes a natural part of the tooth's pigment. Often, many years of eating, smoking and/or drinking coffee, tea or wine can leave teeth with a less than brilliant, yellowed appearance. In other cases, natural pigmentation or antibiotics will give the teeth a grayish tone.

Regardless, whitening can lighten the teeth, from a few shades to several, depending on the type of staining and its severity. The tooth whitening can also brighten the teeth's natural pigmentation, and your teeth will be noticeably brighter after tooth whitening.
