Have you been wanting a brighter, whiter smile, but haven’t taken the time to do anything about it? Maintaining healthy tooth enamel and supportive gums means you will want to brush and floss daily to keep your teeth (and gums) looking their best, and see your dentist regularly for professional cleanings. Even so, there are things you can do to whiten your smile, measurably.

At the dental office of Dr. John S. Grisham located in Littleton, New Hampshire, one of our most popular requests for treatment for a more appealing smile is teeth whitening. In as little as one treatment, teeth whitening can brighten your smile. Our professional system uses a powerful, safe whitening gel applied to tooth enamel. This gel lightens stains, discoloration, and any yellowing on the teeth. Do you know what might be dulling your pearly whites?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

Our dental team is pleased to provide teeth whitening for our patients in Littleton, New Hampshire. Please give us a call today at 603-444-2100 to find out how Dr. John S. Grisham can help you get the smile you have been wanting!
