What Causes Teeth to Stain?

Teeth can become discolored for several reasons, which is why it can be challenging to maintain a flawless smile. Some factors that contribute to yellowed, stained teeth include:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Dental trauma
  • Dark foods and beverages (red wine, berries, coffee, etc.)
  • Certain medications 
  • Genetics
  • Tobacco use
  • Overconsumption of alcohol

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Whitening strips and toothpaste can result in streaky, uneven results that fade after a few weeks. They may even leave your teeth over-sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.

When performed by a dental professional like Dr. Yang, in-office teeth whitening offers several benefits, including:

  • Short Treatment Time: Depending on your smile goals, you can achieve a brighter smile in just one appointment at Capstone Dental. 
  • Personalized, Even Results: Dr. Yang will customize your whitening treatment to meet your smile goals, ensuring even results you’ll be eager to show off. 
  • Long-Lasting Results: Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, professional whitening treatments can last up to three years with proper care and maintenance. 
  • Prevents Teeth Sensitivity: Our Charlotte dentist will take great care when performing your treatment to ensure your teeth don’t become sensitive to temperature afterward.

The Professional Teeth Whitening Options

In-Office Whitening

KöR Deep Bleaching takes as little as one hour to whiten your smile up to ten stunning shades. Dr. Yang can use this system to address even tetracycline-stained teeth. He’ll place the whitening gel on your teeth after applying a rubber shield to protect your gums. Our dentist uses a special light to accelerate the bleaching process and whiten your smile. After your appointment, follow Dr. Yang’s instructions to ensure a long-lasting, beautiful smile. 

At-Home Whitening

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth on your own time, our take-home Treswhite system can help lighten your smile by several shades. Simply fill your custom whitening trays with the prescription gel, pop them on your teeth for the recommended time, and relax. With continued use, your smile will reach ideal whiteness in about one to two weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of professional whitening treatments varies depending on your smile goals, the method you choose (at-home or in-office), and your insurance coverage. Teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic treatment and may not be covered by your insurance provider. It’s best to contact your provider ahead of time to learn if your plan’s benefits cover cosmetic dental services. 

Yes, professional teeth whitening treatments are completely safe. Teeth whitening treatments performed or supervised by a dentist are safer than over-the-counter whitening products. As long as you’re going into treatment with good oral health, teeth whitening is a painless and effective way to brighten your smile by up to several shades.  

Not at all! Professional teeth whitening is a virtually painless process that can safely help you achieve a brighter smile. Whitening solutions overseen by a dental professional are effective and harmless ways to improve your teeth’s appearance. Over-the-counter products, however, can cause sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, along with streaky, uneven results. 

Depending on how well you care for your teeth, the results of your professional whitening treatment can last anywhere between six months and three years. To get the most out of your new stunning smile, be sure to maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist for biannual cleanings and checkups.
