Our professional strength teeth whitening is far more effective than products you can buy at the store; we can give you a much brighter smile.
We examine your teeth and mouth carefully before whitening, and supervise your treatment to ensure your oral health is not negatively impacted.
We also ensure that the whitening treatment will address the cause of your discoloration. Occasionally, discolored teeth may be a sign of an oral health concern that should be treated instead.
Teeth whitening procedures that have been prescribed by your dentist are safe. Teeth whitening products may have moderate impacts on teeth, gums, fillings and crowns.
This is why it is recommended for us to examine your teeth first, to make sure the whitening process will be safe and effective for you. Most people can use and benefit from teeth whitening, and professional teeth whitening that is dentist-supervised is completely safe.
There are two types of staining.
Extrinsic staining are superficial discolorations on the surface of your natural tooth enamel. Usually, these are a yellow to brown color. Sometimes, polishing off surface stains is enough to restore brightness to your teeth. Our regular cleaning services can polish off most surface stains.
Intrinsic stains lie underneath the surface of the teeth, on the dentin, and are harder to remove. They are usually grey or blue.
As we age, our natural tooth enamel thins, to reveal our dentin, which is yellowish in color. Your teeth also create more dentin as you age, darkening teeth even more. Genetics also play a part in this and general discoloration of your teeth.
Drinking certain beverages regularly, such as coffee, tea, and red wine will stain tooth enamel, as will tobacco products. Some antibiotic medications can also stain your teeth. Your general overall health will impact the color of your teeth; certain diseases, such as liver disease, will lead to discolored teeth. A calcium deficiency will have a negative effect, as well. Trauma to a tooth, nerve degeneration, and excessive fluoride can all cause discoloration. Lastly, poor oral hygiene will have a negative impact on the color and brightness of your teeth.
During our regular dental cleanings, we can remove a lot of surface staining when we polish your teeth, but many patients wish to achieve the beautiful, youthful look of a whiter smile. Our team can help with our professional teeth whitening services.
