Why Are My Teeth Stained?

Aging will eventually cause your teeth to lose their whiteness, but there are other lifestyle choices you make that can affect the brightness of your smile. Routine coffee and wine drinking can stain teeth because of their rich colors. The same can be said about eating foods with deep colors like pasta sauce or blueberries without cleaning your teeth afterwards. Additionally, habitual smoking or tobacco use can stain or yellow your smile over time.

Lastly, your oral healthcare can cause discoloration in your smile. If you allow plaque and tartar to buildup, your teeth are even more susceptible to staining from bacteria.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you’re looking for dramatically whiter teeth in a short amount of time, in-office whitening is for you. With this service, you will set up an appointment with Dr. Lawton, which will typically last about an hour. He will apply strong and safe whitening gel to your teeth and use a special light to speed up the process. When you leave our office, you’ll have a smile that is up to 8 shades brighter than the one you walked in with.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Do you want the same professional whitening strength in the convenience and comfort of your own home? Dr. Lawton offers custom-made take home whitening kits to brighten your smile at your own pace. Simply apply the whitening solution to your custom whitening trays and wear them as directed. Patients typically find that the best time to whiten their teeth is at night, and after a few weeks, they will start to see results.

Professional whitening kits differ from those that you can find in-store because they are safer and more effective. Whitening trays bought over-the-counter can often irritate your gums as well as cause uneven whitening. Our at-home kit gives you the benefits of these in-store whiteners without the discomfort and unpredictable results.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Most patients find that their whitening lasts between 3 and 6 months, but the lifetime of your newly brightened teeth will depend on how you take care of them. Avoid drinking or eating items that are rich or dark in color as well as routine smoking or tobacco use. You should also maintain a good oral healthcare routine to keep your teeth as white and healthy as possible. Additionally, the best way to keep your teeth white is to visit our office for touch-up appointments.
