Why Are My Teeth Stained?

While teeth are strong, the enamel is porous. Dark foods and drinks rich in color can easily stain your teeth as they reach past the surfaces, gradually building up discoloration. Below are the most common causes of dental staining.

  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauces
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Age
  • Trauma and injury
  • Certain medications

What is Take-Home Teeth Whitening?

take-home teeth whitening kitTake-home whitening is a convenient alternative to eliminating enamel stains professionally at the dental office. This treatment is distributed by Dr. Brooks and consists of a kit that includes a series of trays and the specialty-grade whitening solution. The trays fit your unique smile, allowing for a comfortable fit and uniform results.

How Does it Work?

Professional teeth whitening methods are known for their ability to brighten smiles by up to eight shades safely and effectively. This is made possible by the whitening formulas used in each treatment.

These solutions contain powerful yet safe professional-grade whitening agents. When activated, these formulas penetrate the surfaces of your teeth, also known as the enamel, where stains like to hide. Professional whitening gels and solutions work to break down this discoloration, revealing the glow of your natural enamel underneath.

The same whitening agents are in the solution that comes with your take-home kit. You apply it to your custom tray and place your tray into your smile. The whitening gel disperses, spreading evenly throughout your smile as you whiten.

Why Choose to Whiten My Smile at Home?

For those with hectic work schedules or a busy family life, you may not have the time to receive whitening treatments at the dental office. For some individuals, control of where, when, and how they lighten their smile is more appealing.

Whatever your reasons, take-home teeth whitening is a convenient and completely personalized way to achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted in the comfort of your own home.

What Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Involve?

Receiving your at-home whitening kit only involves a few steps. First, a quick visit to our office is necessary for our dentist to take a series of x-rays and impressions of your teeth and gums. These steps are not only essential to make sure your smile is healthy, but the results are also sent to a trusted lab to make sure your whitening trays fit your smile perfectly.

Once ready, Dr. Brooks invites you back to our office to receive your custom whitening kit! We also provide you with instructions on how to apply your whitening gel to your trays properly. This allows our team to inform you of the safest ways to brighten your smile at home.


Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over the Counter Products?

Young man choosing color of teeth at dentistWhile there are hundreds of over-the-counter products that promise stunning results with ease, they contain less powerful whitening agents. This means that if your desired shade is significantly brighter than your current one, you may not get the results you want. If overused, some products may cause tooth sensitivity, possible enamel damage, and even permanent discoloration.

Professional teeth whitening treatments are just that - they are formulated for use by licensed professionals. Our take-home kits include the same professional-strength gel and custom trays, allowing for comfortable treatment and even results.


How Can I Make Sure My Teeth Stay White?

Once you have reached the smile shade you have always wanted, naturally, you want to keep it for as long as possible! Below are seven tips Dr. Brooks and our team recommend to keep your teeth white longer.

  1. Brush your teeth for up to two minutes a day, twice a day.
  2. Floss in between teeth every day or after every meal, if possible.
  3. Limit stain-causing foods and drinks.
  4. Avoid smoking and using tobacco products altogether.
  5. Drink plenty of water and eat nutritious, fibrous foods.
  6. Keep up with your professional dental cleanings.
  7. Use your take-home kit for touch-ups.
