Teeth Whitening FAQs

How do store-bought whitening treatments compare to professional teeth whitening?
Store-bought whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste often do provide results but it may take several weeks to achieve them. Our professional whitening treatments are customized to fit the needs of each patient and results can be achieved quickly.
What are the common causes of discolored teeth?
There are several common reasons why you may have tooth discoloration:
- Foods and Beverages: Certain foods and beverages like coffee, berries, wine, and tea stain the teeth. Over time, these foods and beverages create dull and discolored teeth.
- Nicotine: Tobacco products contain nicotine, a highly staining substance that yellows the appearance of the tooth enamel. Nicotine quickly stains the tooth enamel.
- Medications and Health Conditions: Tooth discoloration can be a side effect for patients who take antihistamines or medications for high blood pressure.
How can I treat deep tooth stains?
Intrinsic stains are tooth stains that are within the tooth. Typically, these stains are caused by injury or tooth wear. Patients cannot remove these tooth stains with regular brushing and flossing or even teeth whitening treatment. We recommend porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or tooth crowns for intrinsic stains. These cosmetic and restorative treatments cover teeth and can also address dental damage.
