One of the most common desires of our patients is to have whiter teeth. When considering your options, it is important to consult your dentist to make sure you have all the facts and understand how any procedure may affect your teeth and mouth.

Teeth Whitening in Wauwatosa

Many people think the coloring of teeth is due to plaque or dirt. But a variety of factors can affect the color of your teeth including food, drink, tobacco, age, injury and medications. Understanding what is causing the discoloration is important to properly whiten your teeth.

Teeth whitening products use bleaches (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) to break stains into smaller pieces, which make them harder to see and make your teeth brighter. These bleaches do not work on all teeth, so it is important to consult your dentist before any treatment. Whitening will not be effective on caps, veneers, crowns, fillings or if the discoloration is caused by medications or injury.

Options for teeth whitening usually include whitening toothpastes, at-home whitening, and in-office bleaching. Of course, effectiveness, safety, and results vary greatly between products, so consult with your dentist if you are considering these choices.

Friendly staff, clean office, personable hygienist, good dentist. It all adds up!! They did an amazing job dealing with my dental anxiety and were accomodating, kind, and thorough. I’ve never left the dentist feeling so good before!

Dental Arts is the absolute best! Dr. Mike helped me with an emergency tooth situation, right before I was leaving for a weekend away. He stayed late, and ensured it was perfectly done. If you want excellent teeth and amazing customer service, this is the place to go!

I had a very good experience today. I am very afraid when it comes to dentist and pain. I felt do pain whatsoever. I would recommend Dental Arts to anyone. Most of my family comes here also. All I can say is Great Job!!!
