Over time, it is natural for your teeth to lose some of their luster for one or more of several reasons. Our friendly dentist may recommend teeth whitening to combat dullness, discoloration, or stains. Dr. Lyudmila Shur offers a safe, effective way to restore your smile to its natural brightness. If you are interested in brightening your smile, our team may recommend teeth whitening to counteract discoloration, darkness, or stains that have been caused by:

  • Overexposure to fluoride at a young age (Fluorosis)
  • Poor dental care
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Tobacco use (including smoking)
  • Dark liquids such as coffee, wine, tea and some sodas
  • Highly pigmented foods like berries or hard candies
  • Aging
  • Certain medications and illnesses

While alternatives to professional teeth whitening are available, there are several advantages to having your teeth professionally whitened. For example, store bought whiteners usually take longer, involve more mess and more hassle, and may not produce the desired results. Conversely, Dr. Lyudmila Shur will be able to achieve the results you desire—typically in only one visit. If you have any questions about teeth whitening in Lynnwood, Washington, please call or visit Dr. Shur Dental today. We look forward to helping you have the bright smile you deserve!
