There are many different ways that teeth can become discolored. Here are some of the most common culprits:
Some causes of tooth discoloration can be prevented, but others may be completely out of your control. There are two main types of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are a result of medications, so this is something you should discuss with your doctor.
There are two different types of professional teeth whitening that we offer:
If you’re looking to lift discoloration from the comfort of your own home, Opalescence® GO whitening kits are available. First, Dr. Ponnaganti will check your smile for existing oral health issues. When it’s determined that your smile is in good health, you will be provided with whitening trays to wear for a certain amount of time each day for 5-10 days. You’ll see results in no time!
For patients who are looking for faster results, in-office teeth whitening can be completed in-office with Opalescence® BOOST whitening. If you have a wedding coming up or want to look your best for an upcoming vacation, this could be a better option for you. In just one appointment, you can leave the practice with a smile that is several shades brighter.
The results of your teeth whitening will last much longer if you take the time to maintain them. Here are some tips to help you keep your smile looking great:
