Read on to learn more about teeth whitening and the causes of a yellow smile.

What are the causes of stained teeth?

There are many factors that may contribute to the yellowing of teeth. Usually, staining isn’t the result of bad oral health. The most common causes of stained teeth include:

  • Drinking coffee, wine, or sodas regularly
  • Smoking or tobacco use
  • Eating berries, grapes, beets, tomatoes, and other dark or acidic fruits and vegetables
  • Taking tetracycline antibiotics
  • Ingesting fluoride as a child
  • Aging
  • Genetics

To determine the cause of your stained teeth, Dr. Rodgers will discuss any of your harmful habits and examine your teeth. This will help him provide you with advice for preventing discoloration in the future.

Benefits of Professional Whitening

Over-the-counter whitening treatments are available in any general merchandise store, but they will more than likely leave you disappointed. The results they produce don’t come close to the results of a professional whitening. Plus, they lack many other benefits. Advantages of teeth whitening with Dr. Rodgers include:

  • Instant results. If you opt for in-office treatment, one short visit will diminish discoloration and staining caused by years of tobacco use, coffee, and other damaging habits. If you decide on a take-home kit, optimal results will take about two weeks, which is still much faster than over-the-counter products.
  • Safety. Our method and products are approved by the American Dental Association. This means they are safe and effective, so you don’t have to worry about damage to your enamel or gums. If you do experience side-effects such as tooth sensitivity, a sore throat, or pain in your front teeth, they typically subside within hours or just a few days.
  • Convenience. Typically, over-the-counter treatments require time and effort that most people don’t have. Scheduling a one-time visit can relieve you of the responsibilities that at-home methods call for. If you decide on a professional take-home kit, Dr. Rodgers will instruct you on how to use it effectively and in a way that fits your schedule.
  • Successful outcomes. Our whitening gel brightens your teeth up to eight shades. Over-the-counter treatments aren’t strong enough to provide you with those results.

When you leave our Atlanta, GA office, our goal and hope is that you feel satisfied and confident. Stop waiting on your store-bought whitening toothpaste, gel, or mouthwash to give you desirable results and come see us today.
