What Causes Teeth to Become Discolored?
There are several reasons why teeth become discolored. Often it can be the natural effects of aging. Other causes include smoking, stains from food and drink (especially coffee and tea), or even mineral buildup from medications. Other factors like teeth grinding or any other trauma that damages teeth can lead to discoloration. No matter the cause, there are several ways to brighten and whiten teeth here.
Why Should I Opt For Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening?
A professional dentist is recommended for teeth whitening because only they can go beyond just the tooth surface to completely remove deep stains and discoloration in the enamel. Over-the-counter and online teeth whitening options will always fall short of that. In fact, some over-the-counter solutions can do more harm than good because they can cause damage to the enamel. Even in the best cases, where the enamel isn’t damaged, the result is never as good as with professional teeth whitening.
What Types of Professional Whitening Are Offered at CDA?
CDA offers several types of whitening. We have treatments you can apply at home using custom-made trays with whitening gel. You get a fast result, but it takes a little more time and discipline to continually apply. Our office treatment involves the same chemistry as take-home, but it actually takes less time because it is a stronger solution and uses a light activation system.
What Are the Advantages of CDA’s Patented Permanent Teeth Whitening™?
As an alternative to whitening with bleaching gel, we offer ultra-thin veneers. While they are the most conservative (thinnest) veneers available, they look the most real. They are made of the finest, strongest porcelain available. Unlike whitening gel, you won’t need repeated treatments to maintain your bright smile. With proper care, your veneers should last for years.
