Can Yellow Teeth be Whitened?


Absolutely! We offer a variety of solutions to address tooth discoloration. From professional cleanings to remove surface stains, to professional teeth whitening options like in-office treatments or take-home trays, we can help you achieve a brighter smile.

We can also discuss cosmetic solutions like porcelain veneers or dental bonding for more comprehensive smile enhancements. The method of tooth whitening that will work best for your needs can be determined during your cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Types of Tooth Stains

There are two types of tooth stains:

  • Stains above the enamel (extrinsic)
  • Stains below the enamel (intrinsic)

Daily habits like coffee, tea, or frequent consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages, along with smoking or infrequent brushing, can leave extrinsic stains on your teeth. While some discoloration may persist, professional cleanings at Inland Choice Dental can significantly lighten these stains and reveal a brighter smile. Think of it as a deep clean for your teeth, removing built-up matter and leaving them feeling refreshed and healthy.

    Topical Tooth Whitening Addresses Extrinsic Staining.

    Brush and floss daily to fight surface stains before they become permanent. However, some habits like coffee, soda, and tobacco can make these efforts difficult.

    • Smoking is especially harmful to your mouth. It increases risk of gum disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, dry mouth, and bad breath. Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for your oral health, not just your smile.

    Deep stains that penetrate below the tooth's surface may require professional treatment. Our in-office whitening services can address these stains. If whitening isn't effective, we can discuss other cosmetic dentistry options to achieve your desired smile.

    The best way to learn if tooth whitening or another service will most enhance your smile is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Andrew or Dr. David. Call us to set up your consultation today.

    Teeth Whitening Options At Inland Choice Dental

    At Inland Choice Dental, we offer both in-office and take-home tooth whitening options. These are:

    • Zoom! Laser Teeth Whitening: Get a dramatically whiter smile in just one visit with Zoom! laser teeth whitening. This safe and effective in-office treatment, used by our cosmetic dentists, can lighten your teeth by several shades in about an hour. Zoom! uses a special laser and bleaching solution to remove stains. The laser gently activates the solution, allowing it to penetrate deeper and dissolve even stubborn discoloration. Unlike traditional methods, Zoom! may be more effective for tougher stains. This treatment offers immediate results and may be gentler on your teeth and gums. For qualified patients, Zoom! is a powerful option to achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
    • Customized Take-Home Kits: Whiten your teeth at home with our convenient take-home whitening kits. We create custom-molded trays for a perfect fit, unlike one-size-fits-all store options. This ensures even whitening and reduces the risk of sensitivity. These kits gradually whiten your teeth over 3-4 weeks, lightening them by several shades. They're ideal for those who prefer at-home whitening. For an even whiter smile, combine take-home kits with Zoom! This lets you maintain your Zoom! results with convenient touch-ups at home.

    Is Teeth Whitening Bad for Your Teeth?

    Teeth whitening is generally safe, but it can cause temporary tooth sensitivity in some people. Fortunately, dentist-provided whitening products often contain ingredients like potassium nitrate and fluoride to help minimize this discomfort and strengthen enamel.

    Over-the-counter whitening trays may leak, causing irritation and increased sensitivity. This is another advantage of professional whitening treatments overseen by a dentist.

    How to Maintain Your Teeth Whitening Results

    The longevity of your whiten teeth depends largely on your aftercare habits. While our whitening treatments are designed to last, here's what you can do to extend the bright results:

    • Limit stain-causing culprits: Reduce coffee, tea, red wine, soda, and dark colored foods. Enjoy them through a straw if possible.
    • Ditch the bad habits: Avoid smoking, chewing tobacco, or using any nicotine products.
    • Eat for a bright smile: Munch on fruits and veggies like apples, strawberries, celery, carrots, and pears. They stimulate saliva production, helping wash away staining.
    • Rinse often: Swish water after meals and drinks to remove lingering stain-causing elements.

    In addition to these steps, you can

    • Brushing after meals and snacks with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste. This keeps your teeth clean and minimizes staining without harming any dental restorations you may have.

    Brushing and flossing regularly are key to keeping your teeth white and healthy. This fights bacteria that cause cavities and yellowing. But don't forget professional cleanings!

    Schedule dental cleanings every six months at our Riverside office. We'll remove surface stains, gently polish your teeth, and help you maintain your whitening results. Keeping up with cleanings is easy – call today to book your next appointment!

    How Long Does it Take to Whiten Teeth?

    Get a dramatically whiter smile fast with our in-office whitening – it only takes about an hour! Prefer at-home whitening? Our take-home kits deliver results in 2-4 weeks.

    Both options effectively remove surface stains and lighten your teeth several shades, leaving you with a bright, beautiful smile!

    Am I a Good Tooth Whitening Candidate?

    Teeth whitening is a great option for many people, but it's not for everyone. Here's what to consider:

    • Healthy teeth: You should have healthy gums and no cavities or infections before whitening.
    • Brighter smile goals: If you want a whiter smile but have healthy teeth, you're a good candidate!
    • Maintaining results: Following aftercare tips helps keep your smile bright for longer.

    Not all stains respond to whitening: Deep stains from fluorosis or antibiotics might be tougher. If these are your concerns, we have other options:

    • Porcelain veneers: These thin shells cover the front of your teeth, creating a bright and flawless look, perfect for deep stains.
    • Dental bonding: This tooth-colored resin can be molded to match your teeth and cover up intrinsic stains.

    For a complete smile makeover: We can combine whitening with veneers or bonding to address all your cosmetic concerns. This results in a healthy, strong, and beautiful smile you'll love to show off!

    Schedule a consultation to discuss your options! We'll listen to your goals, examine your teeth, and recommend the best way to achieve your dream smile.

    How Much Does Professional Teeth Whitening Cost in Riverside?

    The cost of teeth whitening in Riverside at the dentist’s office can range from $90 to $345. The cost varies depending on the option you choose.

    • Take-home whitening kits with custom trays are typically more affordable.
    • In-office treatments like laser whitening can cost more due to the technique used.

    We offer a consultation to discuss your options and provide personalized pricing. This way, you can find the treatment that fits your budget and goals.

    Numerous products crowd supermarket shelves. While we don’t discourage these methods, you may want to consider the advantages of professional whitening:

    • Customized system: We offer in-office whitening that removes years of stain in about an hour. We can also make custom trays that fit your teeth for whitening at home. Together we'll find the right system for your situation. Sometimes we combine the two methods for maximum short and long-term benefits.
    • Controlled gel formulas: We use the highest quality whitening formulas available for safety and consistency: professional strength with careful quality control from known sources. Beware of temperature-sensitive gels stored in uncontrolled environments or made in an unknown setting.
    • Sensitivity management: You may experience temporary sensitivity in your teeth while whitening. We have specific strategies for you to use, and will customize the product and method to help you have a comfortable and safe whitening experience.
    • Long-term results: Buying a box of whitening strips every few months adds up. A session with us in the office can provide almost instant results that may take days and multiple boxes of strips to obtain. Alternatively, you'll have a system that should fit for years if you leave with custom trays. A simple refill syringe of gel picked up occasionally from our office allows you to keep your smile fresh for years to come.
