Teeth Whitening Q&A

What causes tooth discoloration?

If you’ve noticed changes in the color of your teeth over the years, you’re certainly not alone. Virtually everyone experiences some degree of tooth discoloration. 

Numerous factors can alter the shade of your smile, including:

  • Untreated decay
  • Smoking or using other tobacco products
  • Certain medications
  • Foods that stain, like red wine, coffee, certain fruits, and tea
  • Excessive fluoride exposure

The most common cause of tooth discoloration is the aging process. As the years pass, your naturally white tooth enamel wears away, revealing more of the naturally yellow dentin that lies beneath. 

How can teeth whitening improve the look of my smile?

Professional teeth whitening breaks apart stains and increases the brightness of your smile. In the hands of skilled dental professionals like those at North Park Smiles, teeth whitening is safe and effective. 

North Park Smiles offers Lumineux laser teeth whitening. This system harnesses the power of light to accelerate teeth whitening. Lumineux laser teeth whitening takes less than an hour from start to finish, and can whiten your teeth several shades in just one visit. 

The process begins by blocking the soft tissues in your mouth to protect them. Your dentist then applies a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The laser works to activate the gel and enhance the whitening effect. 

What about over-the-counter teeth whitening products?

Virtually every drugstore and grocery store offers a section of products that promise to whiten and brighten your smile. While some of these options can deliver mild effects, none can match the power of professional teeth whitening tools and techniques. 

Whitening strips, gels, and tray-based systems won’t deliver consistent results. Misuse can even damage your gums and other soft tissues. With over-the-counter teeth whitening products, you can spend a considerable amount of money and see absolutely no improvement. 

If you’re ready to blast away tooth discoloration and achieve a more beautiful, healthy-looking smile, professional laser teeth whitening at North Park Smiles is a great option.
