Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
There are numerous reasons for tooth discoloration. The most common culprits include pigmented foods and beverages, the use of tobacco products, aging, poor oral hygiene, certain medications, and even genetics. While some causes are preventable, not all of them are always in your control.
There are two different types of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, drinks, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with professional whitening treatments. Intrinsic stains can occur from medications, so this is something that you should discuss with your doctor.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
First, our team will take a look at your smile to ensure that you don’t have any preexisting oral health issues that need to be addressed. If everything looks good, you will receive customized trays and a whitening gel that is more effective than anything you can find over the counter. After just a couple weeks, you will see the beautiful results!
