What causes tooth stains?
Many people associate stained teeth with consuming coffee, tea, wine, and other deeply pigmented foods. While this is a common reason for yellowed or stained teeth, there are several other factors that can contribute to staining:
- Tobacco – smoking or chewing tobacco can leave stubborn stains on teeth
- Fluorosis – consuming excessive amounts of fluoride during the time your teeth are developing can lead to stains
- Aging – as we get older, our enamel becomes thinner and reveals more of the yellow-colored dentin beneath the surface
- Medications – certain medications, such as tetracycline antibiotics, can contribute to the development of stains
Before and After
Benefits of professional whitening
From whitening toothpastes to strips, trays, and other systems, you have likely seen many different varieties of at-home whitening options at your local grocery store or pharmacy. However, professional teeth whitening will simply provide better, safer results. At North Bay Smiles, we create custom trays that are designed uniquely for your teeth that keep the whitening gel where it should be—on your teeth—and off of your sensitive gums where it can cause irritation or sores. In addition, we use a medical-grade whitening gel that provides more rapid and consistent results.
Get rid of stains with teeth whitening
At a young age our teeth are healthy and white but over time the enamel that slowly coats the tooth is worn down causing our teeth to become stained and yellow which is why teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening – they include at home and in-office. With in-office treatments, you will see faster results and you will receive the safest treatments for bleaching the teeth and yield the whitest smile. So don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use, or just aging. Ask your dentist about whitening options that maybe right for you.
Because tooth whitening treatments cannot whiten any dental restorations you have, such as fillings, crowns, or veneers, Dr. Szyperski can work with you to determine a plan for whitening your whole smile in a way that works well for your timeline and budget, replacing old restorations as necessary for beautiful results.
