A healthy, radiant smile is no accident. It involves building good oral hygiene habits and having regular professional dental cleanings to maintain those pearly whites. At the dental office of Dr. Yong Park and associates located in Federal Way, Everett, Lynnwood, Kirkland, Bellevue, and University Place-Tacoma, Washington, one of our most popular requests for treatment is teeth whitening. Do you know what can be dulling your smile?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

Our team at Washington Dental Group can lighten your teeth several shades using an in-office whitening system. We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening for our patients in Federal Way, Everett, Lynnwood, Kirkland, Bellevue, and University Place-Tacoma, Washington.
