Find out more about the professional teeth whitening options available to get rid of any discoloration on your teeth.

Why are my teeth discolored?

Teeth discoloration occurs when your teeth start to appear yellow, brown, gray, or even black. Some discoloration is related to the aging process and is impossible to prevent.

Other factors that cause teeth to lose their white shine are related to lifestyle choices. Consuming dark beverages, such as coffee, colas, tea, and wine, can cause your teeth to stain and change color over time. 

Poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, and certain medications can also cause discoloration. You might also have discolored teeth if you’ve experienced trauma, and some people are simply more genetically prone to discoloration.

No matter why you have discolored teeth, Dr. Aguilar can make them look beautiful and white again with professional teeth whitening.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process of bleaching your teeth. Once your teeth have been bleached, they appear several shades whiter for months.

Teeth whitening can be done at-home teeth whitening kits, but it’s much better to undergo professional teeth whitening under Dr. Aguilar’s highly capable hands. With professional dental teeth whitening, you get superior results and limit the risks of hurting your teeth.

Teeth whitening is a simple in-office procedure performed by Dr. Aguilar in the office.

How does teeth whitening work?

Dr. Aguilar whitens your teeth using custom whitening trays and the ZOOM! teeth whitening system.

Tray teeth whitening

This procedure whitens your teeth using custom trays created for your unique teeth. First, you visit Dr. Aguilar’s comfortable office, and he creates an impression of your teeth used to create your custom trays.

Once the trays are ready, you can take them home and use them with a teeth whitening gel. After using the trays in the comfort of your own home for just a few days, your teeth look 4-8 shades whiter.

You can continue to use the trays at home for repeat treatments for touch-ups.

ZOOM! teeth whitening

ZOOM! is a revolutionary low-intensity light and teeth whitening gel system at Dr. Aguilar’s office. After your hour-long office visit, your teeth will be up to 10 shades brighter.

To perform the ZOOM! whitening system, Dr. Aguilar applies gel to your teeth, then uses the low-intensity light on your teeth. The cycle is repeated multiple times to get the best results.
