Why Do Teeth Become Stained?

1. Extrinsic Stains

Extrinsic stains affect the outer layer of your teeth (the enamel) and are typically caused by substances that come into contact with your teeth. Common causes include:

  • Foods and Beverages: Dark-colored foods and beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and tomato sauce can leave stains on teeth.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking and chewing tobacco expose your teeth to tar and nicotine, which can lead to stubborn stains.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can result in the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can cause yellowing and staining.

2. Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains affect the inner structure of the tooth (the dentin) and can be caused by factors such as:

  • Aging: As we age, the enamel on our teeth naturally thins, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as tetracycline antibiotics, can cause intrinsic staining when taken during tooth development or for extended periods.
  • Dental Trauma: Injury to the teeth can result in discoloration, especially if the tooth's pulp is affected.

Top 3 Reasons to Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

When it comes to teeth whitening, there are countless over-the-counter products available, but opting for professional teeth whitening at your dentist's office offers distinct advantages. Here are the top three reasons to choose professional teeth whitening:

1. Safe and Controlled Environment

Professional teeth whitening is conducted in a controlled and supervised environment by dental experts. Your dentist will assess your oral health to ensure you're a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. This level of oversight helps minimize the risk of potential complications and ensures a safe, effective treatment.

2. Customized Treatment

Professional teeth whitening is tailored to your unique needs. Your dentist will determine the appropriate strength of the whitening agent and the duration of treatment based on your specific dental condition and desired results. This personalized approach ensures optimal outcomes without compromising your oral health.

3. Dramatic and Long-lasting Results

Professional teeth whitening can deliver significantly whiter and brighter teeth in a relatively short time. Unlike over-the-counter products, which may provide gradual results, in-office treatments often produce noticeable improvements after just one session. Professional whitening results also last longer, providing a more enduring, confident smile.

Introducing Zoom Whitening

Zoom whitening is a highly popular and effective in-office teeth whitening method that can brighten your smile by several shades in a single session. Here's how the Zoom whitening process works:


Your journey to a whiter smile begins with a consultation. During this appointment, our dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if Zoom whitening is the right option for you.


Before the whitening procedure, your dentist will protect your gums and lips, leaving only your teeth exposed.

Zoom Whitening Gel

 A specialized whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide is applied to your teeth.

Zoom Light Activation

The Zoom light, which emits a specific wavelength of light, is used to activate the whitening gel. This combination of gel and light accelerates the whitening process, breaking down stains and discoloration.


The gel and light are applied in three 15-minute sessions. After each session, the gel is removed, and the process is repeated until your desired level of whiteness is achieved.


To minimize tooth sensitivity, a post-treatment gel is applied to your teeth. Your dentist will provide aftercare instructions to ensure you maintain your stunning results.

Zoom whitening is known for its speed, effectiveness, and ability to deliver remarkable results in just one appointment.

Introducing Opalescence Whitening

Opalescence whitening is another outstanding professional teeth whitening method offered at SkyeView Dental. Here's what you can expect from the Opalescence whitening process:

  • Consultation: Your treatment journey begins with a consultation with our skilled dentist. We'll assess your oral health, discuss your cosmetic goals, and determine if Opalescence whitening is right for you.
  • Customized Trays: If Opalescence whitening is selected, custom-fitted trays will be created specifically for your teeth. These trays ensure even distribution of the whitening gel and maximum contact with your teeth.
  • Whitening Gel Application: You'll have a professional-strength whitening gel designed to lift and eliminate stains. You'll place the gel into the custom trays and wear them for the specified duration each day.
  • Duration of Treatment: The duration of whitening treatment can vary based on your goals and the concentration of the whitening gel. Some people see noticeable results in as little as one week, while others may require longer treatment periods.
  • Post-treatment Care: Your dentist will provide guidance on post-treatment care to maintain your results and minimize tooth sensitivity.

Opalescence is a versatile option allowing you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, following your dentist's instructions for a more relaxing treatment experience.
