I want to whiten my teeth. I’m over forty and my teeth have yellowed quite a bit. I just don’t want it to look unnatural. So many people I see who have their teeth whitened, especially newscasters, have teeth that are so white you know they’ve been bleached like mad. What is the secret to whitening them in a mild way?

One of the things I love about cosmetic dentistry, is the ability to tailor the treatment to the desires of the desires of the patient. The simplest way to whiten your teeth without them getting overly white, is to do professional at-home teeth whitening. You can whiten until you get it to the level of brightness that you want, then you stop. It’s that simple.
If all you’re wanting is a whiter smile, that is the way to go. If, however, you’re wanting to change anythign else about your smile, such as their size or shape, than I suggest you ask a great cosmetic dentist about porcelain veneers. They can do a lot more.
