What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
Discoloration and stains cannot be reversed through brushing and flossing alone. Over time, our teeth can stain and discolor. The causes of teeth staining include aging, tobacco use, eating certain foods like berries, and drinking wine, tea, coffee, sports drinks, and sodas. Discolored teeth can be unsightly, but there are methods available to whiten teeth.

In-office and Take-home Teeth Whitening
Dental Partners of Boston offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening services that will give you a brighter, whiter smile and improve the overall look of your teeth. There are different options to brighten your smile. We want you to know the differences between take-home and in-office teeth whitening.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
A take-home teeth whitening kit can provide you with some flexibility and customization when brightening your teeth. Dental Partners of Boston provides custom take-home teeth whitening trays. These trays are made with impressions of your upper and lower teeth created by our dentists here in the office. We’ll help you determine how many shades brighter you want your teeth and adjust the amount of whitening gel used in your trays.
Advantages of Take-Home Kits
Here are just a few of the advantages of using take-home teeth whitening procedures:
- The do-it-yourself kit for home use is convenient and works with your schedule.
- The process can be tailored to your desired results: use as little or as much as you and the dentist decide together.
- It is a simple and safe way to whiten your teeth over time or to touch up prior teeth whitening services.
Take-home teeth whitening offers a convenient solution in which you maintain control, avoiding any anxiety you may experience when visiting the dentist. Patients also enjoy the gradual whitening process as it can feel more natural than going seven or eight shades whiter at once.
Encourages Better Dental Hygiene
A take-home whitening kit can help you to create a desire to maintain better oral hygiene. Teeth whitening of any kind is a little redundant if the results can’t be maintained. Completing the process at home encourages you to take greater care to brush and floss your teeth regularly.
Take-home teeth whitening kits are surprisingly affordable. Flexible repayments are another selling point for Boston residents. When used as directed, there are no safety concerns to worry about. You can use the process for touch-ups or more comprehensive treatments. It is safe to use the treatment when you have fillings too – although the results won’t extend to the fillings themselves.
While there are plenty of off-the-shelf home whitening kits on the market, they do not offer the same level of results. When you want the convenience of home whitening but need professional results, Dental Partners of Boston is here to help.
A healthy smile can be a great asset.
A smile also has other day-to-day benefits.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is a one-time procedure that usually takes less than an hour to complete. A trained cosmetic dentist will evaluate your teeth. After the initial examination, simple preparations are made for the procedure. We start the process by using a stronger whitening gel than in take-home kits.
Advantages of an In-Office Procedure
In-office services offer the following advantages:
- The procedure is quick and easy, taking less than an hour to complete.
- From start to finish, the procedure is completed in our office.
- You will see the results quickly: the average patient can see an improvement of several shades in one visit.
Professional treatments inside the office naturally bring the biggest transformations. The combination of stronger ingredients, tailored services, and the professional touch of a dentist can restore a winning smile by making the teeth several shades whiter. Our highly trained dental specialists can additionally use precise whitening techniques to target specific teeth or areas of the mouth that require special attention to gain a uniform look.
The in-office teeth whitening procedures are the fastest way to restore (or even surpass) the former glow. While you will be advised to steer clear of certain foods and drinks for a short time, there is no need for rest or recovery at home, enabling you to get on with your life without any disruption. Moreover, the safe techniques can be repeated with future appointments should you decide to go whiter at a later date.
One-On-One Q&A with the Dentists
In-office treatments also provide the opportunity to discuss the full situation with the specialist, giving you clear insight into what should be expected as well as further support on aftercare and lifestyle adjustments to ensure that the results last a lifetime. Similarly, it can help you discover additional treatments that may be used for cosmetic or health reasons.

Which Treatment Is Right For You?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for all patients, which is why it’s important to appreciate your expectations, budgets, and availability. Meanwhile, you will want to weigh the pros and cons of having an expert take care of the work, or doing it yourself. Ultimately, it is a matter of personal preference. Either way, Dental Partners of Boston is here to help.
All of our dental experts are experienced specialists equipped with the tools and techniques to produce great results whichever option you choose. Our doctors are fully committed to making the process as convenient as it is rewarding. At Dental Partners of Boston, our only goal is to give you a reason to smile.
In fact, many clients find that the best route is to use an in-office teeth whitening treatment at their first appointment before considering home treatments at a later time to maintain a glowing smile for life. However, the key is to find what works best for you. Our no-obligation consultations allow you to discuss all possibilities to find the right approach for your specific requirements.
Whichever treatment you select, having the right team behind you is important. Our winning combination of patient care and dentistry expertise ensures that you’re in safe hands.
