Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
As a person ages, mineral exposure causes the teeth to gradually darken. Over time, some food, drink, or tobacco products also create unattractive yellowish-brown stains. Less commonly, you may experience discoloration due to some medications or bacterial infections.
Most often, stains get deep below the outermost layer of the tooth. Our professional whitening treatments are the best option to remove the deeply rooted stains and restore your teeth to their natural white color. Over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes, remove only surface stains.
Whitening procedures are not a solution for all discoloration (e.g. darkening caused by cavities). Similarly, whitening does not work on all stains. We are committed to helping you choose the best option for your personal situation. Some cases that are not appropriate for whitening procedures can be effectively treated with restorative options.
