Teeth Whitening Spokane Valley WA

Close up comparison of before and after teeth whitening treatment on a man's smile at Coulter Family Dentistry in Spokane Valley, WAConcerns about teeth stains and discoloration are widespread, impacting both the aesthetic appeal of one's teeth as well as self-confidence.

Teeth stains can range from mild discoloration to more stubborn and pronounced forms.

Recognizing the common causes of tooth stains is crucial for implementing preventive measures and maintaining good oral hygiene.

At Coulter Family Dentistry in Spokane Valley, we are pleased to offer professional teeth whitening services for our patients.

Causes of Teeth Stains

There are many different reasons for teeth stains and discolorations. The most common include:

•  Beverages and Foods: Dark-colored items like red wine, tea, coffee, and berries contain chromogens, pigmented molecules that adhere to tooth enamel, causing discoloration over time. Acidic drinks and foods can further erode enamel, increasing vulnerability to staining.

•  Tobacco: Tobacco use and smoking result in persistent teeth stains due to nicotine and tar, leading to long-lasting discoloration.

•  Poor Dental Hygiene: Irregular brushing and flossing contribute to tartar and plaque buildup, causing extrinsic stains and yellowing or browning of teeth.

•  Aging: With age, enamel naturally wears down, exposing the yellowish dentin beneath, resulting in tooth discoloration. Aging also thins enamel, making it more susceptible to stains.

•  Genetics: Genetic factors influence enamel thickness and smoothness, affecting susceptibility to teeth stains.

•  Certain Medications: Some medications, like specific antibiotics and antihistamines, can cause stains within the tooth structure, posing challenges for treatment.

•  Trauma and Injury: Tooth trauma from accidents or sports injuries can affect internal tooth structure, leading to pink or gray stains that necessitate professional intervention.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Teeth whitening procedures typically fall into two categories: in-office professional treatments and at-home options.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Performed by a dentist, professional teeth whitening involves using a high-concentration whitening gel or laser/light-activated system.

The procedure includes examination, protection of soft tissues, application of whitening agents, activation, and possibly multiple sessions for optimal results.

There are many advantages of professional teeth whitening in Spokane Valley:

•  Quick and visible results in a single session
•  Customized treatment based on individual needs
•  Professional supervision ensures safety and effectiveness

Take Home Teeth Whitening

After your in-office whitening treatment, we may also send you home with whitening trays, so you can continue to whiten your teeth at home.

These are more effective than over-the-counter options.

Several over-the-counter products offer at-home teeth whitening options, including whitening toothpaste, strips, gels, and tray-based systems.

While generally safe, these options provide gradual results and may cause gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

In addition to professional teeth whitening, we also offer:

•  Dental Veneers: Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surface of teeth, providing a long-lasting and natural-looking solution resistant to staining.

•  Dental Bonding: This is the application of tooth-colored resin to correct imperfections, offering a quick and cost-effective solution.

•  Dental Crowns: Tooth-shaped covers placed over damaged or discolored teeth, concealing discoloration and providing functional restoration and protection.

Teeth Whitening in Spokane Valley

Maintaining whitening results requires good oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups, and avoidance of staining substances.
