You know, many people go through whitening procedures. First comes to mind are young women, teenagers or 20-somethings. And of course, they want to have white, bright smiles. You might not think of the older women with the gray hair and the lighter complexion and their teeth start to look yellower with that white background. When we whiten their teeth, it's just amazing how it changes them. So, it's for all ages, it's for all spectrums of society. We have a great program at Lakeside Dentistry. We call it Smiles for Life. We donate our whitening money to local charities and it's been a win-win situation for all of us.
You may love coffee. But it doesn’t love your teeth, and over time can cause discoloration. And coffee isn’t the only thing that can dull your smile. So can:
- Other beverages and foods
- Some medications
- Tobacco use
No matter why your teeth look dingy, Lakeside Dentistry has teeth whitening treatments that will make your smile whiter and brighter! Call our Rochester, MN dentist office at 507-316-6444 to find out more about this cosmetic dentistry service.
