You don't have to go through life with stained teeth. Professional teeth whitening can give you the brilliant smile you've always wanted. Dr. teeth whiteningNicholas Papapetros, Dr. Jhon Giraldo, and Dr. Leo Kharin at Dentistry by Design in Andover, MA, offer professional solutions for patients who want a bright smile.

Causes of Teeth Discoloration

If you smoke or use tobacco products, your teeth will darken over time. Pigments from dark-colored beverages cause permanent stains on your teeth. Certain medications can also cause stains on your teeth.

How to Prevent Stains on Teeth

By making a few changes to your lifestyle, you may be able to prevent tooth discoloration. For instance, if you are a coffee drinker or smoker, consider quitting altogether. You can also prevent teeth discoloration by brushing and flossing regularly and having your teeth professionally cleaned by your Andover dentist every six months.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office cosmetic teeth whitening involves combining hydrogen peroxide gel with a light to speed up the whitening process. In-office bleaching will give you a beautiful smile in only one office visit. In-office teeth whitening yields immediate results—often 8 to 10 shades lighter in about 45 minutes. 

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Professional take-home whitening involves custom-fitted, bleaching trays filled with a whitening solution that you can use at home. These tray-based systems are dispensed by dentists to their patients. A take-home treatment will make your teeth several shades lighter in one or two weeks.
