Why Your Teeth Get Stained & Discolored

There are several reasons why your teeth may become stained or discolored over time. One of the most common causes is the foods and drinks we consume, such as coffee, tea, wine, and dark-colored fruits. Tobacco use can also cause yellowing of the teeth. Additionally, certain medications, illnesses, and even aging can affect the color of your teeth. Proper oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, can help prevent some staining, but professional teeth whitening may be necessary to achieve a brighter, more youthful smile.

Whiten & Brighten Your Smile In One Session

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses various techniques to remove stains and discoloration from the teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile. It can be done in-office by a dentist or at home using custom-made trays and professional-strength whitening gel. The process works by breaking down the molecular bonds that cause discoloration, leaving behind a brighter, more even color. Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence.

Reasons You May Need Teeth Whitening:

  • Discolored teeth due to aging
  • Stained teeth caused by the consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine
  • Tobacco use
  • Certain medications can cause teeth discoloration
  • Illnesses can cause yellowing of the teeth
  • Uneven tooth color due to genetics
  • Wanting to improve the appearance of your smile for personal or professional reasons
  • Boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. At-Home Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is performed by a dentist in-office using a stronger concentration of whitening agents than those available in at-home kits. This allows for more dramatic and longer-lasting results in less time. At-home whitening kits can be effective but may take longer to achieve noticeable results and require consistent use over a longer period. Professional teeth whitening is the way to go if you want to brighten your smile in one session.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening:

  • A brighter, more youthful smile
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Better first impressions in personal and professional settings
  • Removal of surface stains and discoloration caused by food, drinks, and tobacco use
  • Safe and effective cosmetic dental procedure
  • Can be done in-office or at home for convenience
  • Non-invasive and painless procedure
  • Can improve the appearance of teeth without more extensive dental work

Your Complete Professional Teeth Whitening Journey

At Davinci Smiles, we understand that the teeth whitening journey is unique for each patient. Dr. Sholina Kherani will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs and goals. Here’s what you can expect during your professional teeth whitening journey:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth and discuss your desired level of whitening. They will also check for cavities or oral health issues that must be addressed before starting the whitening process.
  • Preparation: If necessary, any cavities will be filled to prevent the whitening gel from penetrating the tooth’s inner layers. Your dentist will also take impressions of your teeth to create custom-fitted trays for at-home whitening if that’s the route you choose.
  • In-Office Whitening: We use Zoom2! teeth whitening procedure, which involves applying a pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially-designed light that activates the gel. The gel penetrates deep into your teeth, removing deeply ingrained stains and discoloration. The entire in-office visit typically lasts about an hour.
  • At-Home Whitening: If you prefer, we can provide you with custom-fitted trays and professional-strength whitening gel to use at home. With consistent use, you’ll achieve the same results as in-office whitening over a longer period.
