Clear Away Stains

Stains happen. As long as you eat food and drink colorful drinks, you are likely to develop a discolored smile over time. Practically everything you eat and everything you drink (that isn’t water) will add to those stains.

It is true that some things cause stains to form faster than others. Coffee, tea, and wine are a few examples. Colorful foods such as pasta sauces also cling to teeth. And while it isn’t food, tobacco can cause stains to form faster, too.

To remove these stains, nothing you find in stores works as well as professional teeth whitening. We offer three options at our practice:

  • Opalescence PF – Opalescence is one of the most-respected teeth whitening services available today. This system uses custom-made trays and whitening gel to remove deep stains in as little as 15 minutes per day. They also come in multiple flavors to make the treatment more pleasant
  • Opalescence Go – This system is designed to be as convenient as possible. You receive prefilled whitening trays, which you can put in as you see fit. When used as directed, you can see results in a short amount of time. Just let us know which flavor you prefer.
  • Crest Whitestrips – For convenience, many people prefer to use whitening strips. These are a more powerful version of the strips you can find in stores.

If you have questions, feel free to ask us when you schedule your next visit to our office. We want to help you find the best option for you

Cover It Up

Removing stains isn’t always the best solution, and not all discoloration is the result of staining. This is why dental veneers provide you with another option for creating a white, bright smile.

Veneers work very differently than whitening products. Instead of removing discoloration, veneers conceal discolored teeth. With veneers, a kind of shell is created to bond over the front of your teeth. With a series of veneers, your smile can look as bright as you want it to be.

Veneers have the added benefit of being able to make your smile look straighter and to hide other flaws such as broken or chipped teeth.
