Teeth Whitening Q&A

Why do my teeth become discolored?

Two types of stains affect the color of your teeth, extrinsic and intrinsic stains. The stains that occur on the outside surface of the tooth are called extrinsic stains, and they are often caused by:


  • Plaque buildup
  • Tea and coffee 
  • Tobacco
  • Wine                                               ​


The stains that form inside the tooth are referred to as intrinsic stains, and they are usually the result of:


  • Aging
  • Defects within the tooth
  • The use of certain antibiotics during tooth development
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Cola beverages


While extrinsic stains can be removed most effectively by a professional during dental cleaning and polishing, intrinsic stains are more challenging to correct because these stains are inside the teeth.

What can I do to achieve teeth whitening?

To prevent accumulation of these surface stains between teeth whitening visits, make sure to:


  • Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Use whitening toothpaste
  • Avoid tobacco and foods or drinks known to stain teeth


Because extrinsic stains can still build up and discolor teeth even after professional bleaching or application of veneers, regular hygiene visits will help ensure that your teeth keep looking great.


If your teeth are stained on the inside, such as with intrinsic stains, the team at Duo Dental Spa can improve their appearance by utilizing the following:


Philips ZOOM! professional teeth whitening and bleaching system can safely whiten your teeth in under one hour.


The results are immediate and typically produce teeth that are at least six to ten shades lighter*. By following simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than before, so you can enjoy a lifetime of whiter, brighter teeth.


For those seeking more comprehensive changes, teeth whitening can be combined with other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers, crowns, and more to completely transform our patients' smiles. Have multiple cosmetic concerns? A smile makeover can combine multiple treatments to give you the smile you have always wanted.

How long does teeth whitening last?

The most effective way to whiten your teeth is professional teeth whitening treatment applied by your dentist in the office. The results of this type of treatment can last between 1 and 3 years.
