4 Causes of Teeth Staining

Although teeth are durable, their enamel is porous and susceptible to staining. However, there are various factors that can cause teeth discoloration. Our dental team will sit down with you to identify the sources of your teeth' discoloration and the steps you can take to avoid them following a whitening treatment. Some of the most common causes of teeth staining include:

  1. Consuming darkly pigmented drinks like red wine and coffee
  2. Using tobacco products like cigarettes and chew
  3. Eating foods like dark berries and pasta sauce
  4. Poor dental hygiene

Our In-Office Whitening Options

During treatment, our dentist will apply a special gel on the surface of your teeth. We'll then use light to chemically activate the gel, which breaks down stains and lightens the color of your smile. Over the course of two whitening sessions, we can lighten your teeth by multiple shades.

Depending on your needs, we also offer laser teeth whitening. Although laser whitening is like Zoom whitening, there are distinct differences that separate the two. For example, laser whitening treats each tooth individually and can prove valuable for severe or uneven tooth discoloration. The entire process is minimally invasive and only takes a few hours to see results.

Whitening Your Smile at Home

If you're looking for a convenient way to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home, we offer take-home whitening trays. This form of teeth whitening can not only be ideal if you're looking to brighten your smile for the first time but if you've experienced chairside whitening and want to touch up your smile. Each tray features a professional-grade whitening solution and leverages trays customized to your teeth and gums for even whitening. Take-home whitening trays can prove especially valuable if you need to brighten your smile before events like weddings and graduations.
