Tooth discoloration can be embarrassing and affect your self-esteem. While some stains may be superficial, others can penetrate your tooth enamel and cause internal staining. Discolorations can be caused by dark beverages like red wine or coffee, smoking, poor dental hygiene, hormone fluctuations, and aging. If your teeth have become discolored over the years and you want to regain your confidence, teeth whitening might be the right solution for you.

For most patients, our clinic recommends that you undergo professional whitening treatment rather than trying to whiten your teeth at home. That’s because of the oral health risks associated with some over-the-counter products. It’s also because professional treatments can achieve better results in fewer office visits than at-home kits. For example, we can often use a special light or laser to activate the bleaching gel for faster results. The gel penetrates your enamel to bleach away deep-set stains.
There are also a number of options you can choose from when undergoing professional teeth-whitening treatment. We offer both an in-office procedure and an at-home kit for your convenience. We also offer custom trays that can be used with whitening gels that you can purchase from us. Our dentists can help you choose the right option for your lifestyle and budget. We can also discuss expected results so that you can have realistic expectations before you choose a type of treatment.
