Many people don’t really like the smile they see in the mirror. At Southland Smiles, we think that is a shame. Everyone deserves a smile they are proud of. And while some people need more comprehensive solutions, such as veneers or straightening, often a whitening treatment can give you the boost you are looking for.

Our teeth can lose their luster over the years for a variety of reasons. Staining from food, medication, tobacco use, and conditions like fluorosis, are all culprits. Teeth also naturally fade as we age. Whitening treatments remove or lighten stains and discolorations with safe bleaching chemicals.

Some people achieve the results they are looking for with simple over-the-counter products. These range from toothpastes to whitening strips to tray-based treatments, and also vary in strength. Results typically take a couple of weeks to be fully evident, and vary from person to person. You should consult with Dr. Richard Mantoan before starting on a whitening routine, because misuse can lead to negative side effects.
