No one should have to go through life with a damaged smile. If you have severely stained or yellow teeth, a professional whitening treatment will make your smile look brand new again.
Keep reading to learn how you can benefit from teeth whitening.
There are a variety of foods and habits that can result in stained or discolored teeth. Some of these include:
While there are many over-the-counter whitening products available in stores, they can’t match the strength and efficiency of a professional whitening treatment. When you visit Dr. Grubb for this procedure, you’ll leave our office with a brilliant smile after just one short appointment.
Depending on your needs, we can also provide a take-home whitening kit. This can be used on its own or in addition to a professional whitening treatment for maintenance purposes, ensuring your new smile stays bright and beautiful for many years to come.
If you want to enhance the appearance of your smile, a professional teeth whitening procedure is the ideal treatment for you. With or without the addition of take-home whitening trays, Dr. Grubb will help you achieve the stunning, flawless smile that you’ve always wanted.

Yes. Dr. Grubb would never recommend or perform a treatment that could damage your teeth. Years of studies have shown that the agents used for whitening don’t harm the tooth or the inner pulp.
Teeth whitening is also safe for patients who have restorations like crowns or porcelain veneers. However, the materials used for dental restorations don’t react to the whitening agents in the way natural teeth do—so your dental work may not quite match your freshly-whitened teeth.
Teeth whitening removes stains on the surfaces of the teeth, but it’s not possible to seal the teeth against future stains. Over time, foods and beverages you consume, certain medications, and other factors (like smoking) will begin to dull the whiteness of your teeth. Most of Dr. Grubb’s patients like to come in for a teeth whitening treatment every year.
No. Teeth whitening should not cause you any discomfort at all. Some patients do experience temporary sensitivity after having their teeth whitened, but this won’t last long and can be reduced by using toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth before and after treatment.
To prepare for teeth whitening, Dr. Grubb recommends that patients refrain from consuming acidic foods or beverages for at least 48 hours before their appointment. Also, this treatment works best when teeth are completely free of plaque, so it’s a good idea to schedule your whitening after your bi-annual professional cleaning and checkup.
