Teeth Whitening in Sarasota, Florida

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

There are multiple common causes of discolored teeth:

  • Foods and Beverages: Tea, coffee, berries, wine, and tomato sauces can stain natural teeth. This is because these foods and beverages contain chromogens, which dye the enamel. Even regular brushing and flossing is sometimes not enough to remove staining. 
  • Tobacco Products: Vaping, smoking, or using other tobacco products easily stains the tooth enamel. Tobacco products contain nicotine, which yellows and darkens teeth. 
  • Dental Injuries: A tooth chip, crack, or fracture can expose dentin, the dark underlayer beneath the enamel. Dentin makes teeth appear darker or discolored.
  • Medications: Certain types of medications can have tooth discoloration as a side effect. For instance, antihistamines, blood pressure medications, and antipsychotics can darken the enamel’s appearance.

Teeth Whitening Treatments in Sarasota, FL

We provide in-office whitening treatment for patients who want to address extrinsic stains. Extrinsic tooth stains are superficial because they stain the outer layer of the enamel. Professional whitening treatment can help remove these stains and create whiter tooth enamel.

In-office whitening treatment is also a great option for patients attending special events like weddings, birthdays, and graduations. Patients can see results from professional whitening after just one visit.  

Alternatively, we will recommend porcelain veneers, tooth bonding treatment, and dental crowns for patients with intrinsic tooth stains. Intrinsic staining occurs within a tooth. Tooth damage and wear can cause intrinsic stains. 

Veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of prepared teeth. We can address many teeth with veneers Dental bonding offers similar treatment in the form of a malleable, tooth-colored material. However, bonding is best for patients with chips, cracks, and damage.

If patients have large areas of damage or wear, we will recommend dental crowns. Crowns fully cover and protect teeth, adding strength to the smile.
