Enhance your smile with professional teeth whitening from a dentist in Wichita

Yellow stains on your smile can make you feel unattractive, and no amount of brushing can remove these stains. When you have stained teeth, and you want to have a bright white smile again, what are your options, and is there any way you can avoid staining your teeth?

What causes stains?

First, you need to understand why your teeth become stained. The most common way is through the effect the substances we consume have on teeth. Tobacco and acidic foods and drinks like tomato sauces, soft drinks, and wines as well as coffee and tea can weaken the tooth's enamel and allow particles to more easily latch onto the tooth leaving it discolored. Bright or dark colored foods such as berries and things that contain food coloring are common staining substances. A few people who took certain antibiotics as children may have deep internal tooth discoloration that can be a challenge to remove.

What types of whitening treatments are there?

So once you have stains from any of these things, what can you do to get rid of them? Many people turn to the cheapest option of switching to a whitening toothpaste or using store-bought whitening products. The problem with these methods is that they are often ineffective at removing deeply set stains, and the stains they can remove may take a long time to go away. If you want a dramatically whiter smile, you are better off going to your dentist for a professional whitening treatment that will be tailored to your smile's needs. There are different types of whitening treatments available from dentists such as KöR whitening, Whitening Forever, and take-home trays.

Your dentist in Wichita can work with you to determine which option will be the best for your smile. This will depend on the type of staining, and on how quickly you want to see results. Stop by our office to find out more.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
