What Causes Discoloration and Staining on My Teeth? 

There are many factors that can cause your teeth to become dull, stained, or discolored. These include:

  • Age
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Foods and beverages that stain (tea, coffee, soda, wine, etc.)
  • The side effects of medications
  • Genetics
  • Excessive fluoride consumption (fluorosis)

Why Should I Have My Teeth Whitened Professionally? 

While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, professional teeth whitening is always more effective, faster, and safer. For example, in-office whitening treatments can dramatically brighten your smile in as little as one hour.

What Are My Options for Teeth Whitening?

At Smile Studio 87, we have two options for in-office teeth whitening. Our quickest, most effective treatment is with Zoom, which can whiten your teeth a number of shades in about one hour. We also offer take-home whitening systems to help you maintain your white smile on your own. Ask about our “Forever Whitening Club” when you come in for your next treatment.

Is There Sensitivity Afterwards?

Sometimes there is teeth sensitivity after in-office whitening treatments, which we can alleviate to a degree by providing fluoride treatment beforehand or brushing your teeth after with a desensitizing toothpaste.
