Why Teeth Become Stained
There are two kinds of stains that can develop on teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic.
Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the enamel. Often, they’re the result of overconsumption of darkly pigmented foods and beverages, tobacco use, or general enamel erosion. Although these stains can sometimes be removed by whitening toothpastes or kits, there are many cases where professional whitening is required to fully eradicate them.
Intrinsic stains are more severe and develop deeper within the tooth. They’re typically caused by physical trauma, aging, ingesting too much fluoride during childhood, or overuse of certain medications. Even though these stains are more deeply set, our professional whitening treatment can easily blast them away.
How Our In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment Works
If you have a photo shoot, job interview, or some other important event coming up and want to brighten your smile in a hurry, our teeth whitening treatment would be perfect for you. In most cases, we can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in just one appointment that lasts an hour or less.
First, Dr. H isolates your teeth with a dental dam. This protects your soft tissues, such as your gums and lips, from becoming irritated by the powerful bleaching gel. Our team then shines a special light onto your teeth that activates the gel, allowing it to permeate the enamel to break down the deep-set stains that lie under the surface. After about 15 minutes, we wipe the gel off, removing the stains as well. We can repeat this process a couple of more times until you’re satisfied with the smile you see in the mirror.

- We can help you achieve more dramatic results that last significantly longer.
- Your confidence will gain a boost, increasing your chances of success in the professional world.
