Dr. Henritze and his staff are aware that some of our patients are not happy with their smiles, particularly when it comes to the color of their teeth. Some complain of a yellowing of the teeth; others are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smiles due to widespread discoloration.

Please know that Dr. Henritze wants you to feel confident in your appearance and proud of your smile. One effective way that our team can help with this endeavor is through a cosmetic dental treatment called teeth-whitening.

To achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile, many patients are impressed by the results from professional teeth-whitening, which is a process that lessens the appearance of stains and discoloration of tooth enamel and dentin.

You may be wondering how your teeth became discolored. There are several factors that contribute to making your pearly whites look dull or stained.

For instance, if teeth are exposed to too much fluoride while developing, that can lead to a condition called fluorosis. Poor dental hygiene can also affect the appearance of your teeth. And certain beverages, such as coffee, tea, soda, and wine, can discolor your teeth, as well. Smoking and other forms of tobacco can also significantly stain your teeth.

Dr. Henritze and his staff are proud to offer professional teeth-whitening. If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Henritze’s teeth-whitening services, please call our dental office at (540) 989-6600. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
