Sometimes antibiotic medications also establish stains on teeth or reduction of the enamel creating dark spots on teeth. Thus bleaching of teeth is most common cosmetic dentistry among people. There are many methods for teeth whitening like bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, laser bleaching, and natural bleaching. You can select any one as per the recommendation of your dentist. This improves the whiteness of your teeth and makes your smile more attractive.
