Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of different things. Here are some of the most common culprits:

  • Aging
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Tobacco use
  • Pigmented beverages
  • Sugary/acidic foods
  • Certain medications
  • Genetic factors

Some types of discoloration can be prevented by maintaining excellent oral hygiene habits, but others aren’t completely in your control. There are two different types of stains: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are usually caused by food, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are the result of medications, so you should discuss this with your doctor and dentist if it is something that you are unhappy with.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

There are two different types of professional teeth whitening that are available. Here’s how they work:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth during your own time in the comfort of your home, take-home teeth whitening is an excellent option. We will provide you with a kit containing custom-made trays that you will fill with whitening solution and wear each day for a directed amount of time. You will see the beautiful results in about a week.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you want to achieve quick, dramatic results, in-office teeth whitening is an excellent solution. You can walk out of the dental office with a smile that is multiple shades whiter in as little as an hour. This is ideal for those with a special event coming up, like a job interview or a wedding, who want to look their best by the upcoming date. The ingredients we use to whiten teeth are proven to be both safe and effective.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
