When you take a close look at your smile in the mirror, what do you see? Are your teeth white—or is the color beginning to match that café au lait you had this morning?

Reasons for Stained and Discolored Teeth
Infants have teeth that are almost perfectly white. Permanent teeth, however, are white but tend to have an undertone that is yellow, gray or brown. As we age, this tone usually becomes more noticeable. But in addition to this genetic programming, there are several other reasons why our smiles darken.
As mentioned above, coffee is a leading culprit, along with many other beverages and foods including tea, red wine, tomato sauce, berries, chocolate and more. Smoking and chewing tobacco contain nicotine, which can cause deep stains, too. Other factors that contribute to a less than white smile include:
- Microscopic cracks in tooth enamel that trap food debris
- Teeth grinding
- Radiation and some forms of chemotherapy treatment for cancer
- The antibiotic tetracycline if taken during tooth development
Professional Teeth Whitening in Federal Way
Dr. Beaty and his team realize that there are many ways to whiten your teeth and many of them are sitting on the shelf at your grocery store or pharmacy. And that’s the problem—they are sitting on a shelf and there’s no telling how long they’ve been there. For the best results, whitening ingredients need to be fresh and potent.
With professional teeth whitening in Federal Way, you can be certain that your smile is being treated with a solution that is strong and safe. Dr. Beaty has chosen Zoom! by Phillips. This whitening system uses a higher concentration of either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to eliminate extrinsic and intrinsic stains—those that are on the surface of teeth as well as those below.
A one-hour treatment is all you need to have a white and rejuvenated smile. The Zoom! bleaching gel is applied and a special lamp directed toward your teeth speeds and enhances the whitening process. These steps can be repeated until the desired degree of whiteness is achieved. Most patients leave with a smile that is several shades brighter.
