Teeth Whitening & What to do about Stains on Teeth

Lake Oswego Dentist Serving Portland, & Nearby West Linn, OR

There's nothing like a beautiful, healthy smile to make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence. That's why it's important to have regular checkups to ensure that you keep your teeth as white as possible.

Although many of your favorite foods have been blamed for staining teeth, the fact of the matter is that coffee, tea, and nicotine are the primary products that cause discoloration. The real culprits are heredity and age and occasionally antibiotics at a very early age. Unfortunately, teeth darken as we age. If you have the added disadvantage of poor genetics, keeping your teeth white is going to require assistance.

We offer a variety of ways to enhance your smile. If you simply want whiter teeth, we have a couple options depending on your desires. Don't be fooled by the many over-the-counter tooth whitening products that promise a whiter smile. This could become a costly endeavor as you search endlessly for the one product that's true to its promise. Whitening toothpastes are fine for maintaining your smile, once you've let us clean and brighten it.

Our professional home whitening process allows you the convenience of tooth whitening while relaxing in the comfort of your home. In about two weeks, you'll have noticeably whiter looking teeth. If time is of the essence, our in-office, chair-side teeth whitening process will have your teeth on the road to being pearly white in just over an hour.

If in addition to discolored teeth, you also have crooked or missing teeth, dental implants, bridges, or porcelain veneers are just some of the options we offer. A complete smile makeover offers you the opportunity to work with us to custom design the smile you've always dreamed of having.

We start with the health of your teeth and gums to ensure that your new smile has the foundational support needed to last a lifetime. Proper alignment of your jaw is another important factor to consider. No matter how beautiful your smile, you can't enjoy the benefits if jaw misalignment is causing tension and pain.

When you choose Portland Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Wendling as your cosmetic dentist, rest assured that you'll receive the best possible care. She'll do a thorough examination of your smile and make recommendations that suit your cosmetic dentistry desires and budget.
