What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Discoloring of the teeth is a result of individual lifestyle choices. Coffee, smoking, alcohol, acidic foods, and sodas are all factors that cause teeth to be yellow. Even if you avoid these substances, your teeth still naturally discolor as you age.

Professional Whitening

Professional teeth whitening allows you to customize results. Your dentist will consider the color of your hair, and skin to decide the best shade for your features.

A whitening specialist takes into consideration your current dental health and tooth sensitivity. Not all whitening products are suitable for sensitive teeth. Professionals can whiten teeth without damaging enamel providing the best teeth whitening treatment without affecting sensitivity.

Some individuals are not candidates for whitening if they have certain medical issues, gum disease, sensitive teeth, damaged enamel, or other oral conditions. Always consult with your dentist before seeking teeth whitening services.

What Does Teeth Whitening Entail?

A thorough cleaning of the teeth is required before commencing with a tooth whitening program. Removing all plaque and tartar guarantees your teeth will receive even coloring throughout.

The whitening process begins with the application of a dental grade whitening gel onto your teeth. This substance can damage enamel if not applied by a professional. Then your dentist directs a high-intensity light onto the gel, activating its whitening properties.

Each session lasts around one hour. Whitening treatment typically requires multiple sessions before achieving the desired color.


After every session, enamel is extra absorbent. Be cautious with what you consume to avoid reversing the whitening process and create tooth sensitivity. For one week prior to treatment refrain from coffee, acidic food, tea, red wine, cola, and any other foods with dyeing capabilities.

To prevent sensitivity post-treatment, avoid icy foods and drinks as well as acidic products.
