How Do Teeth Get Stained and Discolored?

The aging process, poor oral hygiene, consuming pigmented foods and beverages, and the use of tobacco products can take their toll on your teeth, leaving them stained and discolored. Certain medications, illnesses, trauma, and injury can also contribute to tooth discoloration.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening involves the use of a peroxide-based gel that penetrates the tooth enamel and breaks down stains, lightening them and leaving your teeth looking whiter and brighter. Professional whitening effectively removes stains from teeth yellowed over the years by regular exposure to staining agents.

Teeth whitening does not effectively treat discoloration resulting from damage on the inside of the teeth due to injuries, excessive fluoride exposure as a child (fluorosis), or the use of certain medications, including tetracycline. Whitening works only on your natural teeth, so it will not lift stains off restorations such as fillings, crowns, or bridges.

If whitening is not right for you, our team may recommend cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers or crowns to restore your smile to its natural whiteness and brightness.

Professional Teeth Whitening for Dazzling Smiles

In-office whitening, also known as chairside bleaching, is your best and safest option. The treatment involves placing a protective barrier on the gums and applying the peroxide-based gel to the teeth's surfaces. We use only the best and most effective professional-grade bleaching agents to whiten your teeth several shades in just one appointment.

For at-home teeth whitening, we can provide you with custom trays and professional-grade bleaching gel. You may not achieve your desired whitening as quickly as with our office procedure, but you'll eventually enjoy dramatic results.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

We do not recommend using over-the-counter or do-it-yourself whitening products that seldom deliver the desired results and may even harm your teeth and gums. Professional teeth whitening, on the other hand, is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced dental professional. Some patients report teeth sensitivity. However, that temporary side effect usually subsides soon after treatment.
