Everyone wishes to have a beautiful, sparkling smile. The technological advancement in dentistry has made it possible for anyone to achieve one's dream smile. Having a whiter, brighter smile can help you boost your self-confidence, makes your social interactions effortless, and improve your life as a whole. Now, there are many ways to get your teeth whitened at home or in the dental office.
Teeth whitening helps in removing stains from your teeth and make them brighter. There are two types of stains; external stains and internal stains. External stains are those that appear on the outer surface of your teeth, and it usually occurs due to foods or drinks. Internal stains may affect the whole tooth and show a deeper problem. They may occur due to decay, medications you consume, etc.
