Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make my teeth look whiter?
If you have stained or discolored teeth, Dr. Ashraf offers in-office whitening treatment to brighten your smile. We use a safe, effective bleaching solution that won’t damage your teeth and gums. In just one appointment, we can help you achieve the radiant smile you’ve always wanted.
What causes stained teeth?
There are a variety of factors that can cause stained teeth. The most common is inadequate oral hygiene, such as not brushing your teeth every day. Other causes include:
- Smoking or chewing tobacco
- Foods such as blueberries, pomegranates, and curry
- Beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soda
- Antibiotics such as tetracycline and doxycycline
Can I get a crown in one appointment?
Traditionally, getting a dental crown requires multiple appointments a couple of weeks apart — but thanks to our CEREC technology, Dr. Ashraf can provide you with a customized crown in just one visit. This advanced technology creates a digital model of your teeth and sends this info directly to our milling machine, which can produce your stunning new crown in roughly an hour.
Will my teeth become sensitive if I have them bleached?
Very few patients report sensitivity after teeth whitening. In the rare case that a patient experiences any discomfort, Dr. Ashraf can use additional numbing agents to desensitize your teeth.
