Professional whitening treatments are the most effective at removing stains on tooth enamel caused by smoking and consumption of certain foods and drinks, including coffee, tea, soda, and wine. However, certain types of tooth discoloration, such as tetracycline stains, discoloration caused by overexposure to fluoride, and advanced decay, are not susceptible to teeth whitening gels. In addition, professional whitening will not lighten dental restoration materials (crowns, veneers, bridges, and fillings). Lastly, professional whitening isn’t permanent, and you will need touch-up whitening treatments to maintain your sparkling smile. This can be performed in our office or with our at-home treatment.
