How to Remove Stains and Discoloration on the Teeth

stains on teeth

When you are looking for solutions to brighten your teeth, professional teeth whitening at our office could work for you. Teeth whitening is a risk-free and beneficial treatment that can be good for individuals of many ages. This is one of the most popular cosmetic solutions we offer to enhance the appearance of the smile. Based on the teeth brightening technique selected, outcomes can be quite striking. To begin your path in acquiring a lighter smile, give our office a call.

Our team will design an individualized teeth whitening program that will work to allow you to attain your aesthetic goals. Our dental practitioners will review any necessary dental procedures that should be performed before teeth whitening. Depending on your dental wellness, it may be essential to delay having certain tooth replacements. Furthermore, spot removal can be more difficult for people who already have dental crowns. One of our team members can determine if laser or at-home teeth whitening is right for your oral health situation.


THE DIFFERENT PROFESSIONAL TEETH LIGHTENING APPROACHES
Professional teeth whitening utilizes high-concentration lightening gels that aren't accessible in stores. We perform three primary teeth whitening methods at our facility:

  • In-office lightening: Zoom! WhiteSpeed gives our clients the fastest results. To begin, the gum tissues are protected to ensure that there is no irritation. A special gel is then distributed, which is kept on for one hour. As soon as it is taken off, the teeth are significantly brighter after just one session. There is virtually no tooth sensitivity following this treatment.
  • Laser teeth brightening: With laser teeth lightening, our staff can remove patches and discoloration utilizing advanced oral equipment. Our dentist will customize your service to help you attain your goals and make sure your outcomes last for a long time. To begin, the teeth will be cleansed, and protection is put on to cover the gumline. Following this, a whitening gel is distributed and activated by way of a unique light. Depending on your current enamel color, this varnish can be applied up to three times throughout one session.
  • At-home whitening: For take-home teeth brightening, our staff can create a mold of the teeth utilizing two pliant mouth trays. You should fill your molds with the lightening gel provided by our dentist as needed. The amount of time you wear your trays will be decided during your consultation and must not exceed an hour.

PRESERVING YOUR SMILE AFTER ADVANCED TEETH BRIGHTENING
Practicing a proper at-home oral health routine is necessary to guarantee that your teeth brightening outcomes last a long time. As an aside, you should have routine oral evaluations and biannual professional cleanings to keep your teeth and gums in good health. Following your procedure, you should steer clear of foods and drinks that might result in discoloration. If you use cigarettes, you could ruin your outcomes.


HOW OFTEN AM I ABLE TO WHITEN MY TEETH?
People need to get an initial in-office bleaching service one time a year and whiten their teeth at home in between visits to sustain their outcomes. Nevertheless, every person's treatment plan might have a unique routine depending on their specific dental health circumstance and the color of their enamel. During an initial consultation, our skilled dental professionals can provide specific information.

COMMON CAUSES OF STAINS ON TEETH

There are many reasons why you may get stains or discoloration on your teeth. Some of the most common causes of stains on the teeth include:

  • Food and beverages: Things such as coffee, tea, red wine, fruit juice, berries, beets, soda, and dark-colored vinegar can all stain the teeth.

  • Smoking: Tobacco naturally yellows the teeth leading to discoloration.

  • Aging: Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner from brushing and more of the yellow dentin shows.

  • Medications: Certain high blood pressure medications, antihistamines, and even antipsychotics can lead to tooth darkening.

Thanks to advancements in teeth whitening technology, teeth whitening can improve a smile. After just one treatment, many patients see their teeth become several shades whiter.
