Teeth Whitening in Tuscaloosa
Brighten your teeth and rejuvenate your smile!
Stained, discolored or yellow teeth are often the natural consequence of age. Certain foods and beverages can also contribute to teeth losing their original brightness and white color. We offer teeth whitening for our patients who want to enhance their smile and increase their confidence. Depending on what’s needed, we have different options to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile.
Why do teeth darken?
Video: What causes teeth discoloration?
As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth wears down, and the darker color underneath begins to show. Plus certain items can stain the teeth. Coffee, tea, soda, tobacco products, certain foods and even medications can all cause teeth to become stained or discolored.

It has been found that saliva degrades the whitening elements in gels commonly used in bleaching trays. The trays used with the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System, however, are engineered to prevent saliva from contaminating the gel, resulting in significant and longer-lasting whitening. Warm temperatures are also known to degrade bleaching gels, making them much less effective. KöR maintains the integrity of their gel potency by refrigerating it as soon as it is manufactured, and continuing this refrigeration all the way through to delivery to our office.
KöR is known to substantially whiten teeth, even teeth that have been discolored from medications such as tetracycline. This potent antibiotic is known to produce very stubborn gray or brown stains on teeth.
Conventional gel trays are only able to maintain their whitening strength for 25-35 minutes, but KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching trays and gel provide at least 6 hours of peak whitening activity when it is applied. The result is a radiant, bright smile.
Venus take-home bleaching trays
We also use the Venus Teeth Whitening system. You are supplied with enough bleaching gel to last 2 to 4 weeks, depending upon the stain or discoloration level of your teeth. Trays containing the gel are placed over the upper and lower teeth for about 30-45 minutes daily for up to 7 days, and we will help you choose the right gel strength for your teeth. This system is easy to use and can be conveniently done at home on your own schedule.
Crest Professional whitening strips
If your teeth only need a small amount of whitening, we are pleased to offer Crest Professional Whitening Strips. This is not as effective as whitening with custom trays, but if you only need a small amount of whitening, this may be right for you. You apply these strips yourself to both of your upper and lower teeth for 30 minutes every day for 20 days in the convenience of your home.
