What stains teeth?

Over time, a number of habits and factors can contribute to the yellowing, staining, and discoloration of your teeth. Even your simple daily habits can lead to your teeth appearing dulled and discolored. The following factors may cause tooth staining and discoloration:

  • Certain medications and illnesses
  • Smoking and other types of tobacco use
  • Fluorosis (excessive exposure to high concentrations of fluoride)
  • Certain foods and drinks, such as coffee, tea, wine, and soda
  • Poor dental hygiene and oral care

In addition, the natural aging process can cause your teeth to become yellowed and dulled.

What is teeth whitening?

In order to revitalize your smile, our dentists are pleased to provide professional teeth whitening in Dearborn, Michigan. Teeth whitening, sometimes referred to as bleaching, is a simple yet effective way to brighten your smile and improve your appearance as a whole. A whitening solution is applied to the surface of your teeth and allowed to soak in. This bleaches away the stains and discoloration on your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is safe and will not damage the structure of your teeth. You may experience some increased tooth sensitivity during and right after your whitening treatment, but this is only a temporary effect.
