Teeth can be discolored for many reasons. Discoloration can be caused by aging, tobacco, coffee, tea, soft drinks, wine, and other beverages and foods. As your dentist, we offer custom take-home whitening trays. Your teeth will become whiter and whiter over several days or weeks.
The ADA recommends that you only use a bleaching product after talking with a dentist. This is especially important for patients with many fillings, crowns and dark stains. We need to examine your teeth carefully to see if bleaching is the most effective treatment for you. Then we can plan your whitening treatment.
There is such a thing as too much whitening. Do not use whitening products for longer than the product directions or your dentist tells you. Overwhitening can cause severe discomfort to your teeth and gums.
