Posted By: Platte Canyon Dental

If you take care of your smile and your teeth are still discolored, it can be frustrating. We understand your dilemma and offer treatments to help get rid of yellow tooth stains and other discoloration.

Teeth discolor for various reasons, but in many cases, you can restore your teeth to the original luster with the help of your Littleton, CO, dentist.

Reasons teeth lose their white hue include:

  • Tooth-staining foods and drinks
  • Certain medications
  • Underlying tooth health issues
  • Enamel loss
  • A natural part of aging

If you have tooth stains and discoloration, including a yellowish hue to your teeth, we may be able to help.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Littleton, CO

Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options because it is fast, noninvasive, and gets results. However, if you’ve whitened your teeth with over-the-counter products, we assure you that professional teeth whitening is different.

With professional teeth whitening, your dentist assesses your gum and tooth health before providing treatment. We also offer a take-home kit that you can use on your own time. We only ask that you follow the instructions and contact us if you have any questions.

Other Teeth Whitening Options

It’s also possible to give the illusion of a whiter smile without professional teeth whitening. We recommend the following options if you have cosmetic issues apart from tooth stains:

  • Dental veneers—Conceal discoloration, short teeth, gummy smiles, and more
  • Dental bonding—Use our composite resin material to hide flaws and discoloration affordably
  • Dental crowns—Cap your tooth to the gumline to hide discoloration, chips, and other abnormalities
