Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Lots of factors can leave your teeth yellow or otherwise discolored. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine can make your teeth look yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. Dr. Castine at Castine Family Dentistry has a variety of options to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted, from custom whitening trays to specialized whitening strips.

You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually, over the course of a few weeks, with a take-home teeth whitening kit. Ask Dr. Castine about your home options.

What is the fastest way to whiten teeth?

When quickness counts, the fastest option for teeth whitening is chairside at Castine Family Dentistry. Dr. Castine has a professional-grade teeth-whitening solution to whiten your teeth in an hour or less.

Or maybe you’ll have your whitening treatment to go. Castine Family Dentistry’s at-home option includes a powerful whitening solution and whitening trays to use regularly. Look for results in just a few weeks with this method.

Are there advantages to professional grade whitening?

At the store, you’ll see plenty of over-the-counter whitening toothpastes, whitening strips, whitening mouthwashes, and other teeth-whitening products. So why choose Dr. Castine’s professional treatment?

For one thing, you rarely get the Wow!-inducing results with these store-bought products, simply because these nonprescription items aren't powerful enough. The best results come from the best products, like Dr. Castine’s professional-grade options.

Give your gums a say in the matter, too. The professional-grade whitening products, whether administered at Dr. Castine’s office or with the practice’s take-home kits, use ingredients that won’t harm your gums. Over-the-counter products can have unlisted ingredients that might irritate your gums, among other problems.

You don't have to live with teeth stains and discoloration. Call to learn more or schedule a consultation at Castine Family Dentistry for more information on teeth-whitening treatments and take-home alternatives.
