Is your smile as bright as you would like it to be? If you have been exploring methods to brighten its shade, we would love to help you. We understand how disappointing it can be to see your once bright white grin collect stains or yellow discoloration. You may find yourself less likely to engage with others or go through painstaking efforts to hide your teeth when you speak. laugh, and eat. This is why we offer professional-grade treatments to return the original natural beauty of your healthy enamel. While a store-bought treatment can sound tempting, our in-office procedure is custom-tailored to your specific needs.

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we engage with you each step of the way when creating a cosmetic treatment plan. This can include a single procedure or multiple methods to address each of your concerns. You may be surprised to learn how easy your dream look can be to achieve. For stains and discoloration, we can lift pigment with a powerful bleaching agent to reveal the beauty beneath.

Understanding The Causes Of Dental Discoloration

By taking time to learn the various causes behind teeth stains, you can alter your behavior to protect the color of your smile. While some causes are genetic, others come from diet and other habits such as smoking. By paying attention to drinks such as tea, coffee, soda, and wine, you can discover if any of these are the culprit behind your staining smile. Simply choose an alternative beverage if one of these causes unsightly marks. Another common cause is poor oral hygiene which allows plaque to stick to the surface of your smile. By staying on top of your semiannual checkups,  you can receive a professional cleaning to remove bacterial deposits and maintain a healthy smile! These visits provide an opportunity to talk to your dentist about cosmetic ways to enhance your smile.

Helping Whiten Your Smile

If we determine that your dental discoloration is due to stains in the enamel itself, we can provide an in-office whitening session to return your teeth’s natural color. In the course of a single visit, we apply bleaching gel to the surface of your teeth that pull pigment out from the surface of your smile. We apply a special light that accelerates the process far beyond the capabilities of a store-bought whitening gel.


When stains begin to form on the surface of your teeth, work with your dentist to discover methods for returning their bright shade.  To find out more about how we can help you remove discoloration from the surface of your teeth, please contact our Sunny Smiles location on N Zaragoza Rd in El Paso, TX at (915) 849-9000.
