What stains teeth?

Every day, our teeth are exposed to elements and factors that can have a detrimental effect. One of the most common results of our day-to-day living is darkened or discolored teeth. Among the many causes of tooth stains are:

  • Age
  • Smoking
  • Coffee, wine, tea
  • Sugary foods
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Medications
  • Old dental restorations

No matter the cause of stains or spots, our dental team at Shelly Ereth Barone has a solution.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the cosmetic treatment designed to whiten your smile and dissolve away stains, discoloration, darkening, and spots. We are proud to offer both the Zoom! in-office whitening system and the Nite White at-home ystem to reveal a more radiant, dazzling smile.

The Zoom! method can whiten your smile by multiple shades in as little as an hour. While you sit comfortably at our office, we apply a whitening agent to your teeth and activate it with the special Zoom! light. The whitening gel sinks down into your tooth enamel to bleach away deep-rooted stains and discoloration. The Nite White system is for at-home use and is great for our patients who want to whiten their smiles at their own convenience. The whitening agent is delivered as you wear custom-fitted plastic trays to hold the gel.

Teeth whitening in Metairie, Louisiana, is safe, effective, and fast. We encourage our patients who have always wanted a whiter smile to call our seasoned dentist at Shelly Ereth Barone, Dr. Shelly Ereth Barone, to schedule your teeth whitening consultation today, at 504-832-1164. We look forward to helping you achieve a more beautiful smile!
