Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening that is performed in our office is far more powerful and effective than what you will typically find at drug stores or in the local grocery store.

We will provide a thorough exam and evaluation of the discoloration of your teeth. This information will guide our treatment recommendations to whiten your smile in a healthy, safe manner.

Common Causes of Discoloration

There are many sources of teeth discoloration, so we will only cover some of the most common culprits:

  • Cavities
  • Tartar 
  • Periodontal disease
  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Bad oral hygiene
  • Dark berries
  • Tea
  • Tobacco (or smoking in general)

Teeth whitening attempts to correct stains and damage that has accumulated over time from consumption of specific foods and drinks.

Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that aims at improving your tooth’s appearance by restoring its enamel to its natural color: white. It is estimated that over 100 million Americans whiten their teeth one way or another – because white teeth is an important aspect of our society today.

Difference Between Whitening and Bleaching

Teeth bleaching is very similar to teeth whitening, but they are not the same according to the FDA. Whitening seeks to restore teeth to their original color, while bleaching seeks to restore teeth beyond its original color. Both procedures will lead to similar results, however. Bleaching is preferred in severe cases of tooth discoloration.
