How Do My Teeth Get Stained?

Even though your teeth are very durable, the enamel on your teeth is porous, which means that it can become stained and dull over time. Certain foods and drinks can also stain your teeth. Some of the common factors that could cause surface stains to your teeth include:

  • Red wine, coffee, and other dark beverages
  • Tobacco products
  • Blackberries and dark sauces
  • Poor dental hygiene

Our In-Office Teeth Whitening Solutions

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that will brighten your smile by whitening your teeth. If you have stained or discolored teeth, teeth whitening can restore your enamel to its natural appeal. When you need results quickly, our dentist offers exceptional Philips Zoom® whitening treatments in our office to give you the bright smile you've always wanted.

Our team starts by carefully applying a whitening solution to your teeth. Philips Zoom uses ultraviolet light to activate the whitening agents that are in the formula. Our compassionate team takes care to apply the solution to your teeth to avoid irritating your gums.

The entire procedure can be done in one visit, and typically takes about an hour to complete. When you are finished with your teeth whitening procedure, your smile will be noticeably whiter. We'll also provide you with take-home trays you can use to keep your smile bright or for a touchup before an important event.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

teeth whitening in Fort MyersWe understand that you'll have questions about the different whitening options, especially when trying to decide which one is right for you. Our friendly team is happy to provide answers and walk you through what to expect with our treatments. Here are some of the most common questions about teeth whitening in Fort Myers.

Does whitening damage teeth?
Whitening your teeth doesn't damage the enamel of your teeth. The process works by lifting staining elements from the enamel and revealing the natural color underneath. You may feel minor sensitivity shortly after treatment, but this should wear off within a few hours.

Can yellow teeth become white?
Yellow surface stains on teeth can usually be lightened with whitening treatments. If the staining is due to pigmented foods, drinks, or tobacco use, teeth whitening can eliminate these stains. However, if the discoloration is due to aging, genetics, medication, or dental trauma, teeth whitening will likely be ineffective. In such cases, we might recommend an alternative treatment like bonding, veneers, or crowns.

What do dentists use to whiten teeth?
The active ingredient in tooth whiteners that dentists use is peroxide (hydrogen or carbamide). Hydrogen peroxide acts as the whitening agent, and carbamide peroxide disintegrates into hydrogen peroxide.
