Over time, teeth can become stained or discolored by a variety of causes. Some are dietary. For example, teeth can be stained by common beverages such as coffee, wine, and soda. Foods with dark pigment, such as berries and dark sauces like tomato or soy sauce also leave stains if teeth aren’t cleaned after consumption. Other causes of discoloration are non-dietary substances such as tobacco, some antibiotic medications, and overexposure to fluoride.
Staining and discoloration resulting from these and other causes can be taken care of by a professional teeth cleaning at Acre Wood Dental. There are all kinds of over-the-counter whitening products, from toothpastes to tray-based treatments. But these vary in effectiveness and can cause serious damage if misused. For better, safer results, consult with Dr. Benjamin Johnson about the various whitening options we provide at Acre Wood Dental.
We offer both take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments. Take-home treatments utilize custom-formed trays and whitening solution to whiten your teeth over time. Treatment can fit into your schedule, and the results are striking. Our in-office treatment is great for patients who want to see more immediate results. Your teeth can be brightened several shades in as little as one visit.
