When your beautiful teeth are marred by dark stains or yellow discoloration, it can be difficult to enjoy your life to the fullest. Thankfully, multiple teeth whitening techniques are available here at Hirshfield Dental Care for patients who are ready to make a dazzling change. Contact us today if you’d like to learn more about professional teeth whitening to enhance your smile, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment with Dr. David Hirshfield!

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Tooth discoloration can occur for a variety of different reasons. Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Pigmented foods and drinks
  • Tobacco use
  • Sugary and acidic foods
  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Certain medications

Some causes of tooth discoloration are easily prevented, but others are completely out of your control. This is because there are two different types of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the tooth and are caused by foods, drinks, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with professional whitening treatments. On the other hand, intrinsic stains can occur from certain medications, so this will need to be discussed with your doctor.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

We offer two different types of teeth whitening so you can brighten up your smile however you see fit:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Some patients prefer to whiten their smile at a more gradual pace, or they simply don’t have the time in their busy schedule to undergo an in-office procedure. In these circumstances, a take-home kit is your best option. These kits come with custom-made oral trays and professional-strength whitening gel. The patient wears both together for a certain amount of time each day, and within four to six weeks, you should see beautiful improvements.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Looking for quicker results? Maybe you have a wedding coming up, or a big party that you’d like to look your very best for. Our KOR in-office procedure dramatically whitens teeth in record time. The process only takes a single appointment, and you’ll be able to leave the same day with a much brighter smile that’s ready to be shown off.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

The results of your teeth whitening will last longer if you take the time to maintain them. Here are a few tips to help you keep your smile bright:

  • Keep up excellent oral hygiene. This means brushing twice and flossing once a day.
  • Limit your consumption of dark-colored beverages, like coffee, tea, and red wine.
  • Avoid using tobacco products.
  • Attend regular cleanings and checkups every six months.
  • See us for touch-up treatments as needed
