Smile Bright This Holiday Season

Husband And Wife Affectionately Exchanging Christmas GiftsThe holiday season is here. For a lot of our patients the holidays mean fun celebrations and a lot of family photos. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Brent Blaylock wants you to smile confidently all winter long. If you feel self conscious of your discolored teeth, our Durham, NC dentist office offers several different options for teeth whitening. Do not hide your behind your scarf, let your smile shine bright in all your family memories this holiday season.

As we age our teeth begin to yellow. There are many different reasons your teeth may become discolored. Foods and beverages, like coffee and red wine can stain teeth’s surface. Enamel may wear away leaving the inner yellow dentin exposed. Certain medications or trauma to your tooth can cause brown spots, or even bright white spots. The cause of your tooth discoloration will determine which cosmetic treatment will offer the best results.

Our Durham, NC dentist office offers the following cosmetic treatments that can whiten teeth:
