How does teeth whitening work? 


Professional teeth whitening trays use a hydrogen peroxide bleaching solution to brighten your teeth and give you a more brilliant, attractive smile. Teeth whitening is available at Legends Family Dental for purchase to do at-home treatments after your appointment. Sometimes, the bleaching agent can make your teeth sensitive so ask one of our team members if you’re a good candidate for whitening. Keep in mind that all whitening systems will not whiten any dental work (crowns, veneers, fillings, etc.)

What causes tooth discoloration? 

A variety of foods and beverages can stain your teeth, but some of the most common causes of tooth discoloration are: 

  • Berries 

  • Citrus fruits 

  • Soda 

  • Balsamic vinegar 

  • Coffee, tea, or wine 

  • Cigarettes, cigars, or other tobacco products 

If you eat, drink, or use any of these on a regular basis, they could be to blame for any stains you’re noticing. Try to limit your consumption of these, especially after you’ve had a whitening treatment.
