There are numerous causes for tooth discoloration and staining. You can either experience surface staining from things like smoking and coffee, or you can experience discoloration from the underlying dentin darkening. Determining the cause of your tooth discoloration is a vital part of determining the best treatment plan for you.
Dr. Carmona will take x-rays and work closely with you to determine the cause of your tooth staining and discoloration to develop the best-individualized treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Not all discoloration is the same, meaning that it can’t be treated the same—types of staining and discoloration are distinctly different and may require different types of intervention.
For instance, yellowing caused by tobacco use is particularly difficult to remove because the yellowing can be very deeply rooted within the tooth structure. In this case, you may need to explore other cosmetic methods such as bonding or veneers. Some stains, however, may just require mild bleaching with an abrasive treatment to remove the surface stains. Dr. Carmona will talk to you about the reasons your teeth may be discolored in order to determine the appropriate treatment.
At Austin Prosthodontics, Dr. Carmona provides high-quality, hands-on care that is individualized for each patient. As a result, we offer a few different types of professional whitening treatments to help each of our patients get the appropriate care on their schedule. Talk to Dr. Carmona about which professional teeth whitening procedure is best for you.
Because some stains are more stubborn or have underlying causes, Dr. Carmona may recommend treatments that will give you a whiter brighter smile with the help of bonding, veneers, or crowns.
If you are considering whitening your teeth with over-the-counter whitening products like bleaching kits and whitening toothpastes, you should always speak with Dr. Carmona before choosing a product to protect your oral health and get the best results.
In-office whitening: In-office tooth whitening procedures produce the best results that last the longest. Dr. Carmona will work with you to determine the perfect shade of white for you and closely monitor the process to achieve your desired results.
At-home whitening kit: Professional at-home kits offer you the convenience of doing the treatment at home and on your own schedule with the benefit of professional results. Ask Dr. Carmona if our at-home whitening kits are right for you.
Teeth whitening can cost anywhere between $650 – $1000 depending on your individual treatment plan. Since this is an elective cosmetic procedure, most dental insurance plans won’t cover it. However, we partner with Lending Club Patient Solutions to offer payment plans that fit within your budget.
Investing in your smile is an investment in your self-confidence. To learn more about your payment options, call our Austin dental office today to talk to our patient care coordinator and billing staff. You deserve to have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
