Quiz: Different Solutions For Addressing Smile Discoloration

Quiz: Different Solutions For Addressing Smile Discoloration

Posted February 23, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental

You have several options available to you when you want to find a way to brighten your smile, though some can have a greater effect than others. You can test the effectiveness of a store bought whitening product, or a whitening toothpaste, but you can find that you only enjoy minor improvements. Professional cosmetic work from your dentist can lead to more notable changes. For many patients, professional whitening treatment is the ideal approach to changing the color of your smile, but you may benefit from a different cosmetic procedure. This can be due to the nature of your discoloration. While issues with enamel stains can be remedied with whitening agents, a different strategy can be needed when you have issues with discoloration stemming from internal tooth problems.


True Or False: You have to undergo your teeth whitening treatment at your dentist’s office.

True Or False: If you have a tooth that becomes discolored after an injury, you may be able to improve its color with a dental bonding procedure.

True Or False: A whitening toothpaste you pick up at the store can remove surface stains, but deeper-set stains may require professional whitening agents.


False! You can arrange a whitening treatment to take place at your dentist’s office, and you can have results in as little as twenty minutes. However, this is not the only option available, as you can also take home a professional whitening kit, and perform daily treatments yourself.

True! Dental bonding can cover up signs of physical trauma that might change the appearance of your tooth. This includes being able to brighten a tooth that has changed color after an injury.

True! Whitening products bought at the store can make some changes by removing surface stains, but professional whitening treatments can have a bigger effect, and are able to brighten teeth by eight to ten shades!
