Caring for your pearly whites is essential to a whiter, brighter smile. Daily brushing and flossing keep your teeth (and gums) looking their best. At Dr Dennis Burrell and Associates located in University Place, Washington, we have been helping patients achieve healthier smiles for almost 35 years. Dr. Dennis Burrell has seen firsthand that the number one change our patients desire in their smile is whiter, brighter teeth.

Things That Can Stain Your Teeth:

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.

If your teeth have yellowed, and you don’t have crowns or fillings in the teeth that can be seen, Dr Dennis Burrell and Associates, can help. We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening for our patients in University Place, Washington and the surrounding areas.
