Why Are My Teeth Stained?

Unfortunately, stained teeth are a result of years of consuming stain-causing foods and beverages, certain medications, and aging. Additionally, bad oral habits like smoking and poor hygiene can cause your teeth to have a yellow tint. Although you have many store-bought teeth whitening options at your disposal, they’re costly and often don’t deliver the results you’re looking for. That’s why Dr. Devlin offers professional teeth whitening.

What Can You Expect From Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening?

When you visit our office, you’ll get to meet our fantastic team of dental professionals. When you come in for the treatment, we’ll have your appearance refreshed by the time you leave. We’ll prepare your teeth by protecting your gums and oral tissues from the professional, safe, and concentrated bleaching gel we use. This will penetrate the uppermost layers of your teeth without altering your natural tooth structure to tackle stains and discoloration from tobacco use, foods, and beverages.

After you’re finished with treatment, it’s best to avoid consuming foods and drinks with high levels of pigment for the following 24 hours. These include coffee, black tea, soy sauce, tomato-based sauce, yellow mustard, beets, and pretty much anything that would stain a white shirt.
