If you’re looking for ways to remove stains from your teeth, you’re in the right place. At Concierge Dental, we understand how tooth discoloration can impact your self-confidence, and we’re here to help.
Understanding Stained Teeth
Stained teeth are a common dental issue that affects many people. Various factors can contribute to stained teeth, such as:
- Smoking; and
- poor oral hygiene
Patients at Concierge Dental Group can substantially alter the color of their teeth in only one dental visit. Our dentists apply a peroxide gel with a relatively high concentration to remove deep stains and discoloration.
