Teeth whitening is a common treatment offered by dental offices, and the main type your dentist is likely to offer is the professional bleaching method. This method has been developed to avoid damaging your tooth enamel and can remove common stains, such as coffee, and lighten your teeth by several shades. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment and tends to be used by those wishing to improve the appearance of their smile, but as with any type of treatment, it's possible to experience some side effects.

You should already know about dental plaque. It's the sticky film that can build up across your teeth, but it can be removed easily enough by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly. However, the minerals contained in your saliva will be deposited in the plaque, and this will cause it to harden within a few days. When plaque hardens, it turns into tartar. While plaque can be removed easily enough at home with nothing more than a toothbrush and floss, tartar needs to be removed by a dental professional.

If you have some missing teeth and still have some healthy teeth remaining on your upper or lower jaw, a full set of dentures won't be right for you. When some healthy teeth remain and you want to maintain the structure of your mouth and enhance your smile, partial dentures can be a great solution. This type of denture can be used to replace multiple teeth and preserve your ability to enjoy a wide range of foods.
