Stained or discolored teeth are very common but can be often treated inexpensively and non-invasively. Stains are typically picked up from a variety of sources such as coffee, tea, tobacco, and some medications. We typically initially recommend trying an over- the-counter at home bleaching product. Most of these products contain one of two industry standard active ingredients: hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and are effective to a certain extent depending on concentration. However, if these products are not achieving desired results in a timely manner and your teeth are not overly sensitive using these, we offer a take home bleaching option. This involves fabrication of custom bleaching trays that fit your teeth perfectly and a bleaching agent with a higher concentration of active ingredients for more effective, faster results.
