Are you frustrated with the stubborn yellow or brown stains on your teeth? Having discolored teeth can cause you to develop a habit of hiding your teeth when you smile, or even avoiding smiling in front of others altogether. Maybe you’ve tried over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, but they didn’t quite produce the results you wanted. Fortunately, at Encore Dentistry, we offer a way to help you achieve results you can be proud of in an hour or less. To book a consultation or learn more, contact our Arlington office today!
In many cases, tooth discoloration happens naturally as a normal part of the aging process. If you begin to notice brown or yellow stains on your teeth, it could be due to one or more of the following factors:
Sometimes, teeth develop surface stains that can be easily removed by using a whitening toothpaste or attending regular dental cleanings. For tougher, deeper stains, however, professional in-office teeth whitening may be needed to truly brighten your smile.
In-office teeth whitening with our Smyle system is a quick and painless process that can usually be completed in less than an hour. First, Dr. Cabansag will isolate your teeth by placing a protective barrier over your gums, tongue, and other oral tissues. Once we apply the bleaching gel to your teeth, we’ll let it work its magic for a few minutes. The gel contains potent chemicals that break apart the stain molecules in your enamel. When we wipe off the gel, off come the stains as well. This process is done a few times until you’re perfectly satisfied with the results. After we wipe off the bleaching gel one last time, you’ll be able to leave our office with a drastically brighter and more confident smile!

On the other hand, some of the benefits offered by professional teeth whitening treatment include:
