Clovis teeth whiteningThere's no doubt that our Clovis-area patients are interested in achieving bright, white, photogenic smiles. It's hard to overstate the importance of a confident, beautiful smile in your personal and professional lives. This is why teeth whitening is so popular with so many of our patients.

Of course, while our teeth whitening treatments are all safe and effective, they're not right for everyone. A crucial part of successfully achieving your cosmetic dentistry goals is undergoing only the procedures that are right for you.

The good news when it comes to teeth whitening is that most patients are excellent candidates for some sort of professional whitening treatment. The crucial consideration is that your teeth and gums should be basically healthy. If you suffer from gum disease or tooth decay, teeth whitening isn't the right choice – you'll need to address the more serious concerns before moving forward with whitening.

The other thing we'll have to evaluate is the cause of your teeth staining. If you have stains that are caused by tetracycline, for example, teeth whitening probably won't be effective. You'll need to consider other options for restoring your smile.

But these are all questions we can answer at an in-person consultation. Modern, professional teeth whitening is a pleasant, comfortable, effective experience, and not one you need to worry about. This is why it's always a good idea to opt for our professional teeth whitening treatments instead of the over-the-counter products available at your local drug store.

If you live in or around Clovis, California and you want to explore teeth whitening, please call Dr. Gregory G. Miyake, DDS today at 559-224-0103.
