What is our recommended whitening and brightening smile enhancement method?
Our office recommends professional whitening trays and products that we keep here in our dental office.
At times we notice staining or discoloration of our teeth. This causes our smiles to seem duller or not as bright as what we would like them to be.
Discoloration of teeth can be caused by genetics, antibiotics, and certain foods. Our smiles often tend to darken as we age as well. Basically, anything that can and will stain a white t-shirt will stain our teeth over time. It is also possible that there is internal tooth discoloration caused by changes in the enamel of the tooth and the dentin. The possible causes of internal tooth discoloration are exposure to high levels of fluoride, tetracycline, having high temperatures/fevers as a child, use of antibiotics as a child, developmental disorders, tooth decay, restorations, root canal issues, and trauma.
Tooth whitening can last for one or more years, depending on your personal daily habits. Smoking, teas, wine, and sodas can cause staining to appear on your teeth. It also depends on how well you take care of your teeth and if you’re following up regularly with one of our wonderful hygienists. It is best to have a regular cleaning; this helps to remove a “film” that builds upon our teeth. After cleaning, it is typically easier/quicker to whiten and brighten your smile.
The best part, the custom trays are yours to keep, and you can touch up whenever you want that sparkle back in your smile!

I had some bad dental experiences as a child and didn't go to a dentist for 10 years because of my fear. Dr. Iskol is very patient and understanding, and now I no longer fear going to the dentist. The front office staff is great too!
Dr. Low is the best dentist around. He really cares about his patients and shows that by taking extra time and really getting to know them. He incorporates the latest technology, making the process as gentle and comfortable as possible. I also love that they offer great cost-saving options for those that don't have dental insurance.
I feel like family when I come to receive my treatment. I never experienced any problems with customer service from my hygienist down to the receptionist. Dr. Iskol and his treatment plan has help me regain my smile. Thank you!!
