There are many habits that directly affect the appearance of your teeth. Drinking coffee and soda as well as smoking and using tobacco are obvious culprits for discoloration. However, even if you do not ingest these things, the color of your teeth tends to dull and yellow with age. Before you start greeting family and friends at the Thanksgiving table, why not dazzle them all with a brighter smile through teeth whitening?
Teeth Whitening Gives Your Smile a New Glow
Although there are many over-the-counter whitening treatments you can find in stores, they do not compare to the professional-grade treatment you get in a dental office.

October 5th is World Smile Day, and it is a day to share kindness with everyone you encounter. Many people celebrate with sidewalk chalk activities and volunteer work, but you can spread some joy by simply smiling and showing some thoughtfulness to everyone you come into contact with. When your teeth are not their best, you may not feel like smiling. That is why you need to look into the following cosmetic dentistry treatments so that you can smile big and wide once again.
1. Porcelain Bridges, Crowns and Fillings

If you’ve been putting off a cosmetic procedure you’ve been wanting, now is the time. September is set aside as Self-Improvement Month, so take advantage of the spirit of the month and seize your opportunity to set yourself up with the smile you’ve always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry comes in a variety of options, so you can get the teeth whitening you’ve been wishing for as part of your regular fall check-up or as a special treat between regular cleanings.
Why Whiten Teeth?
Many patients opt for this procedure over the more expensive and invasive process of installing veneers because of the cost effectiveness and relative permanence of the teeth whitening process. Diet and oral health affect outcomes a lot, so patients who successfully use whitening for permanent gains have to change their diet to avoid overindulgence in foods like coffee and cola that can stain teeth. The process is repeatable, though, so even if the effects fade with time and indulgence, you can easily schedule ...
