At the dental office of George Strickland, DDS in Venice, Florida we offer teeth whitening treatments for our patients who need a little help brightening their smile.

Stains sometimes occur due to irregularities in the enamel that attract stains when you routinely eat or drink consumables that are dark in color. This can include things like blueberries, marinara sauce, your favorite iced coffee or tea, and others.

Tobacco is another culprit in staining teeth, both when smoking cigarettes or chewing snuff.

Even aging can darken your pearly whites over time, sometimes from the accumulative effects of eating and drinking discoloring items, and sometimes because of genetics.

These stains are known as “extrinsic” stains. These types of stains are the types which respond favorably to teeth whitening.

Other factors can discolor your teeth too. For example, medications such as tetracycline, a common antibiotic, can affect your smile. Excessive fluoridation, usually during childhood while the teeth are still growing, can also promote staining. Another staining agent is an injury to the tooth. These types of discoloration are considered “intrinsic” stains.

Dr. George Strickland and our dedicated team are pleased to offer teeth whitening for our patients in Venice, Florida, and the neighboring communities. We offer both in-office teeth whitening, including the popular Zoom whitening treatment and take-home whitening you can do in the comfort of your own home.
