No matter how careful a person is about their oral health, stains on the teeth develop over time from food, drinks, and tobacco, which makes the teeth look darker and older. For a boost to their appearance and self-esteem, Scottsdale dentist Dr.Rod Gore offers the Opalescence tooth whitening systems to safely remove stains from their enamel and whiten their teeth several shades. Dr.Gore offers in-office whitening treatments which use potassium nitrate and fluoride (PF) to strengthen the enamel while whitening for stronger, healthier teeth.
For patients who want to remove stains inside the tooth pulp, which may appear gray or discolored from damage or decay, Dr. Gore also performs internal teeth whitening. To improve the appearance of the inside of the tooth so it can match the rest of the smile, Dr. Gore performs a root canal to remove the damaged pulp from the tooth. Once the tooth is cleaned, a white filling material is used to hold up the surrounding dental enamel and make the tooth whiter. For more information on root canal therapy, please see our Restorative Dentistry services.
