Help! My Teeth Are Yellow

Help! My Teeth Are Yellow

A bright, sparkling smile can make a major impact on how you feel about yourself and how others see you. Did you know that people rate others as more attractive when they have white, evenly spaced teeth? A welcoming smile also increases the chances that others will see you as approachable and successful.

When a brilliant, bright smile is what you desire, don’t settle for products that provide lackluster results. Professional-strength teeth whitening is only available through a dentist.

Our team at Nunn Family Dentistry whitens teeth with Opalescence™, an advanced teeth-whitening system that provides dramatic results. Learn how Opalescence can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. 

How did my teeth turn yellow?

Your teeth are made of hard tissue that doesn’t regenerate, and even though they’re durable and meant to last a lifetime, they’re vulnerable to issues like decay and discoloration. If your teeth don’t look as bright as they should, you may wonder what’s going on. 

There are several causes of tooth discoloration. Firstly, teeth tend to lose their whiteness as you age. That’s because the outer layer of enamel wears away gradually. 

The foods you eat, beverages you drink, and certain lifestyle habits contribute to dull, discolored teeth. Some of the most common culprits are:

Certain medications can cause tooth discoloration, as well as past exposure to too much fluoride in water. Regardless of the cause, general and cosmetic dentist Clay Nunn, DDS, can help you whiten your teeth and feel good about your smile. 

Opalescence Chair-side whitening

Opalescence chairside teeth whitening enables Dr. Nunn to whiten your teeth with fast, dramatic results you’ll love. Patients enjoy a noticeably brighter smile after just one session of three 20-minute applications performed in the office. 

Chairside Opalescence uses a concentrated bleaching gel that enhances and accelerates the whitening process and breaks up stains on your teeth. 

Opalescence features dual-action whitening. The 38% hydrogen peroxide helps to blast through stains while the fluoride and potassium nitrate strengthen dental enamel and improve your oral health. 

The dual-syringe system provides more precise control, making it more accurate and effective than other teeth-whitening gel treatments for a brighter, natural-looking smile. 

What is tooth whitening with Opalescence like?

Before your Opalescence treatment, our team performs a dental cleaning to remove plaque from your teeth. Then a protective barrier is applied to prepare your teeth and protect your gums. 

The syringes are mixed and the whitening gel is applied to your teeth. A special light activates the gel to break up stains on your teeth. After 15 minutes, you rinse your mouth and repeat the process to reach your ideal shade of whitening. 

The entire Opalescence whitening treatment takes less than an hour. When you leave our office, you can enjoy a smile that is up to 10 shades whiter. 

In addition to chairside whitening, Nunn Family Dentistry offers professional-strength at-home teeth whitening.
