Why Are My Teeth Discolored?
Discolored teeth could just be a sign of old age. As the enamel of your teeth starts to wear down, the yellow dentin underneath is exposed. However, a tooth might change color because it’s been stained. This can happen if you eat and drink a lot of dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries and tea; it’s also a likely result of using tobacco, and in certain cases patients who were exposed to tetracycline or other kinds of medication at a young age will develop dark spots on their teeth. Dr. Henkin will figure out the source of your discoloration and help you find the best solution for getting whiter teeth.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening Procedure
At Skyline Dental, we use Zoom! Teeth Whitening. A special highly concentrated bleaching gel (which is filled with ingredients that are far stronger than anything you can get at the store) is placed on your teeth. We’ll use a UV light to activate the gel, causing it to break down the stain particles on and below the surface of your enamel. In as little as an hour, the difference in your grin will be obvious!
Zoom! whitening is a safe procedure that has been thoroughly researched and clinically studied. It can benefit almost anyone who’s looking to make improvements to their pearly whites.
How Long Can I Expect Teeth Whitening to Last?
The effects of Zoom! whitening are permanent, but if you want to keep your teeth looking their best afterwards, then you’ll have to put in the effort to avoid discoloration in the future. That means limiting dark-colored foods and beverages; if you do decide to indulge in some coffee or tea, you should drink it through a straw to minimize contact with your teeth. On the other hand, crunchy fruits and vegetables will help clean your teeth and reduce the chances of stains forming.
You’ll need to practice good oral hygiene to avoid future discoloration. Brush and floss after every meal; it also wouldn’t hurt to add mouthwash to your routine. If you smoke or use another form of tobacco, it’s better to give it up entirely. And if you want to make sure your teeth stay as bright and healthy as possible, you should make time for two checkups and cleanings at Skyline Dental each year.
