If you have stained teeth and you are looking into having a whitening treatment in Bessemer, Alabama, we’ve got good news for you: you’re not alone! Many people are in the same situations, and in fact, $1.4 billion is spent each year in America on whitening products. That’s a lot of money!

We know you like to save money and have whiter teeth, so you should try to kill two birds with one stone by avoiding the following things: tobacco, coffee, tea, soda, and some medications. Moderate drinking astringent beverages and discuss the effects of medications on your teeth with your doctor.

Some internal factors are also responsible for your teeth’s color. Aging and genetics can also change the color of your teeth over the course of your lifetime. If you are someone who is in this position, you should know you have many options for whitening to you. And our team is here to help with professional whitening treatments! We can inspect your mouth and customize a plan just for you to help whiten your teeth.

You could try to save money and whiten your teeth by using at home kits, but these will take longer to give you the results that you desire. Also, they are known to damage the enamel of the teeth permanently, leaving users with sensitive teeth. And since at home kits are designed with your mouth in mind, they can leave your gums irritated.

If you have any concerns or questions about teeth whitening, please call Pitner Family Dentistry at 205-426-2644. Our dentist, Dr. Rebecca Pitner and his staff are here to help address any concerns you may have.
