Stained teeth can cause embarrassment and stop you from smiling. Teeth whitening methods or cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers can help you achieve a brighter smile, but what’s causing your teeth to stain? Lots of factors can contribute to a gradual loss of luster in the natural color of your teeth.
A few of the most common culprits include:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Coffee and tea consumption
- Red wine consumption
- Tobacco use
- Taking certain antibiotics
Dr. Konig is pleased to offer several options to make your smile a brilliant shade of white, and the most common are teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Konig, you will discuss your smile goals and determine the best way to get a whiter smile. Everyone has a natural whitening threshold, which determines just how white your teeth can become. If you’re unable to reach your desired tooth shade, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you.

These trays are personalized for your teeth, and, unlike over-the-counter products, prevent the whitening gel from leaking and irritating the gums. Our patients also report that these trays tend to be much more effective than the over-the-counter whitening trays you can buy at the drugstore.
