Anchorage Orthodontist Discusses Teeth Whitening Solutions, Anchorage, Alaska

A brilliant, white smile is not only beautiful but exudes confidence. When patients visit a cosmetic dentist to ask about teeth whitening services, they are often excited to learn that these professional-grade treatments provide amazing results in a short period of time.

Dr. Warren Libby of Anchorage Orthodontic Associates in Anchorage, Alaska, is an orthodontist who offers services for patients interested in achieving beautiful smiles with braces. Once patients have straightened their teeth, they often ask about teeth whitening methods to further enhance their appearance. While there are several over-the-counter whitening methods including strips and trays, a cosmetic dentist provides dramatic results with more concentrated bleaching products only available through a professional.

Knowing what causes staining and discoloration of the tooth enamel can help patients reduce the likelihood of darkening their teeth with their favorite foods and beverages. Many of the items we eat and drink can affect our smile. 

Some common staining culprits include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Sodas
  • Red wine
  • Berries
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Hard Candies

Additionally, certain habits can discolor your teeth, including chewing tobacco and smoking. Medication has also been known to cause deep staining that is reversible with professional-grade teeth whitening services.


Patients who have completed their orthodontic treatment and want to further enhance their smile with teeth bleaching are welcome to contact the team at Anchorage Orthodontic Associates by calling (907) 349-1951. Dr. Warren Libby offers quality teeth whitening services using a trusted system called Opalescence. This treatment is performed in-office or with custom trays used at home for gradual results.
