Our experienced team at Healthy Smiles Dental Care PC offers ZOOM! teeth whitening for our patients in Puyallup and Maple Valley, Washington. We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments, which use a powerful yet safe whitening gel applied to the surface of the teeth to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. What are some things that can discolor your teeth?

Food and Beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

Tobacco: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

A healthy, radiant smile involves building solid oral hygiene habits and having regular professional dental cleanings to maintain a healthy set of chompers. Even so, Dr. Paul Roe, Dr. Kevin Kim, and Dr. Hyun Lee have found that the number one request of our patients is to have whiter, brighter smiles.
