Welcome to T.R. Smiles Dental, the dental practice of Dr. Harihar Kumar in Toms River, New Jersey, where we are pleased to offer teeth whitening for our patients who have tooth discoloration. You may be wondering why your teeth become stained, and you are not alone!

Tooth discoloration, a condition which is actually quite common, arises from various factors, depending on the cause of the staining. Extrinsic stains are caused by factors on the outside of the tooth like eating or drinking foods such as coffee, tea, or wine, smoking or chewing tobacco, or poor oral hygiene habits. Intrinsic stains stem from whatever is going on inside the tooth, such as decay, taking certain medications such as tetracycline, over fluoridation (known as fluorosis), a chipped or broken tooth which has darkened from deadened nerves, or even having a dark amalgam filling in the tooth.

At T.R. Smiles Dental, we can brighten tooth color several shades as well as dissolve stains. This simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment can noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments use a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Our professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-confidence in a short time!
