HomeBlogHow Can I Improve the Appearance of a Single Stained Tooth?

Stains on the teeth are a common—but nonetheless frustrating—concern. Many factors can contribute to discoloration, including certain foods and drinks (such as coffee, berries, and wine), tobacco use, some medications (such as tetracycline), and poor oral hygiene. In order to address teeth stains, individuals often turn to over-the-counter teeth whitening remedies. However, these are rarely as effective as professional whitening, and some can even harm your teeth.

When only one of your teeth exhibits discoloration, it can be especially bothersome to try to remove the stubborn stain. Thankfully, our dedicated team at Smile for Life Dental can treat stained teeth—or even just a single stained tooth—using a variety of different cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:

Professional Teeth Whitening

Our minimally-invasive teeth whitening procedure is conducted in-office using specialized ZOOM!® whitening gel. This advanced solution can reach deep layers of a tooth’s enamel, where the majority of discoloration lies, with almost immediate whitening results.


More severe discoloration can often be addressed with our CEREC® Same Day Dental Crowns.  After one of our dentists takes a digital impression of the affected tooth, a customized restoration will be crafted using our state-of-the-art CEREC® milling machine.  Our dentists take the time to carefully match the color, shape, and size of your new crown to the surrounding teeth for a seamless, natural-looking appearance.
