Many factors cause our smiles to lose their luster. It’s common for our teeth to discolor as we age, and even things like medications can cause staining to our teeth. Some of our lifestyle choices such as smoking or using tobacco products can also create our teeth to discolor, and did you know that certain foods can even change the appearance of your teeth? Dr. Sam Carroll, your Yuma cosmetic dentist, has more information on the improving the shade and brightness of your teeth.

Food and Beverages that Discolor Your Teeth

Some foods and beverages contribute to the dulling or discoloration of your teeth such as:

  • Marinara or red sauce
  • Curry
  • Red wine
  • Coffee and tea
  • Dark sodas
  • Dark berries such as blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries

The good news is that whitening your teeth can help combat the effects of foods and beverages that stain your teeth. At Sam Carroll, DMD, we offer a couple of options for teeth whitening that can help put the pizazz back into your smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Yuma AZ

Dr. Carroll and his team offer both in-office whitening and take-home whitening trays for your convenience. If you’re looking for immediate results, in-office whitening can meet your needs. In one short appointment, we can brighten your teeth six to ten shades. You’ll leave the office with a dazzling new smile!

For take-home trays, we create custom fit trays made from impressions taken of your teeth. You’ll receive a high strength whitening gel and a crash course on how to safely apply it to your dishes. Next, you’ll be off to complete your whitening at home at your leisure. This option works well for patients who may want to update their smiles down the road because we always have additional tubes of whitening gel for sale in our office.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
