Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Tooth stains can be caused by a variety of different factors. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Aging
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Tobacco use
  • Pigmented foods/beverages
  • Sugary and acidic foods
  • Some medications
  • Genetic factors

Some types of discoloration can be prevented with excellent oral hygiene habits, but others are completely out of your control. There are two different types of staining: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are usually caused by food, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are the result of medications, so you should discuss this with your doctor if it is something you are concerned about.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

We offer two different types of teeth whitening. Here is how each of them works:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, take-home teeth whitening is a great option. We will provide you with a kit that contains custom-made trays that you will fill with a whitening solution and wear on your teeth every day as you are instructed. You will see your beautiful final results in 2-3 weeks!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you’re hoping for quick, dramatic results, in-office teeth whitening is a great option. We can use the Ultradent or KOR in-house whitening symptoms to break up stains using powerful, professional-grade bleaching solutions. In as little as an hour, you can walk out of the dental office with teeth that are several shades whiter. This is a great solution for those who are looking forward to an upcoming event where they want to look their best.
