Teeth yellowing and staining

Dentin, a darker, yellowish layer under the enamel, typically becomes more noticeable as the outer layer thins over time with aging and brushing. This can leave your teeth looking yellow and dull. 

Colorful drinks can stain the thin outer layer of your teeth, known as enamel. Foods with a high acid content like white wine can also cause damage. Smoking and using chewing tobacco can lead to stains from tar and nicotine as well. Some antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications can cause tooth discoloration. So can chemotherapy and radiation of the head and neck. Individuals exposed to certain antibiotics in their mothers' wombs or as babies may also experience tooth darkening as adults.

Our teeth undergo wear-and-tear from everyday life. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it. 

Teeth whitening

While kinds of toothpaste and other products are available for purchase, they typically only remove light stains from the surface of the teeth. Professional teeth whitening, on the other hand, goes to work deep in the enamel at the molecular level. Not only does it remove stubborn stains but it lightens the teeth by several shades. Many professional teeth whitening options ensure the right fit for your lifestyle.

In-office treatment

One possibility for whiter teeth is to have an in-office whitening treatment. This procedure takes about an hour and uses the highest concentration of peroxide. The results are immediately apparent.

Teeth whitening kits

Teeth whitening kits allow you to brighten your smile without leaving your house. We can customize your care based on your ideal schedule and how strong the active ingredients are. We want to find the best match for your tooth sensitivity, schedule, and lifestyle.


Some people find the most success by combining in-office and at-home treatments.

The options are endless and we’ll help you decide on the best one! Are you tired of looking at stained and yellow teeth? Contact us today to book an appointment with Drs. Nguyen and Florman to find out if professional teeth whitening is right for you.
