Health Tip: Brightening Your Pearly Whites

(HealthDay News) -- There are a plenty of ways to whiten your teeth, using at-home kits or having them professionally brightened.

Here are things to keep in mind when considering a tooth whitening procedure, according to the American Dental Association:

  • Teeth that have naturally turned a yellowish color usually respond well to tooth bleaching.
  • Teeth that have discolored to a brownish or gray shade may not respond very well to bleaching.
  • If you have bonding or tooth-colored fillings, they probably won't bleach well, and will stand out after your natural teeth are whitened.
  • Porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be good options for people with dental work that doesn't bleach well.
