If your concern is strictly COSMETIC, there are many new methods available to replace the fillings with beautiful, functional long lasting restorations.
Such things as white filling materials, porcelain inlays, crowns and veneers may be used to give you the smile you are seeking.

You are correct. There are many products and techniques available. Some work great and some don't work at all. The various over the counter products give the least predictable results.
To get a really great result you should probably bleach through dental offices; there are 2 types:
1. Home Bleaching (under our supervision): Custom made trays for home application of a bleaching gel.
2. In Office Bleaching: At our office "Laser or Zoom whitening systems". With this method a Laser or an Ultra-Violet light source is used to activate the bleaching gel which is applied to your teeth in the dental office. It takes from 20-50 minutes depending on the case.

If you ever wondered why we recommend you come back every six months, it is because regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums.
In between those six-month examinations, it is important that you work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. If you need additional help, we may even suggest more frequent visits.
The visits include x-rays and full check-up of the teeth and the mouth internally and externally.

If your tooth’s nerve becomes infected by decay, or damaged by trauma, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth.
