Most of us would like to have white teeth and a great smile. But discolored or just plain yellow teeth are common, especially in a world of tea and coffee drinkers. At Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ, we can fix that.

Tooth enamel is a little like skin. It has pores that can get clogged and discolored. The most common habits that work against you are:

  • Tobacco
  • Sodas and other dark-colored drinks, i.e. coffee, red wines, and teas
  • Not practicing daily oral hygiene
  • Not having proper dental care

If you want to lighten your teeth, the above will consistently work against you. We advise kicking these habits to the curb if you want the whitest teeth possible. There are other good health reasons, too.

If, in spite of your best efforts, your smile is still dull, professional teeth whitening and other cosmetic options from Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ can revive it. People throughout Gilbert, Superior, Gold Canyon, Mesa, and Apache Junction trust us with their smiles! We also offer complete general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
