What Causes Tooth Discoloration
Tooth discoloration can arise from a variety of factors. Drs. Arroyo and Arroyo will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the cause of the tooth discoloration. Patients may need to change certain habits to prevent further discoloration or maintain a bright smile after their professional teeth whitening treatment. Discolored teeth may stem from a certain diet, trauma, medication, or poor oral hygiene. It is important to find the cause for tooth discoloration in order to maintain a brighter, whiter smile.
Treating Discolored Teeth
For patients with discolored teeth, we offer professional teeth whitening services. Depending on your needs, patients can choose from KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching System (In-office teeth whitening) and Opalescence teeth whitening (take-home teeth whitening). Both teeth whitening treatments offer long lasting, effective results for patients with stained or discolored teeth. Although teeth whitening can be a valuable option to brighten discolored teeth, not all kinds of stains can be treated with teeth whitening. Depending on your dental needs, we may suggest porcelain veneers or dental bonding to enhance the appearance of discolored teeth.
