We also offer in office whitening for eliminating discoloration to give you a brighter, more attractive smile. Most often, stains have gotten deep below the outermost layer of the tooth. In house whitening treatments use a light treatment to remove the deeply rooted stains and restore your teeth to their natural white color. Over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes, remove only surface stains.
