What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Enamel, the outer layer of the tooth reflects and reflects light. Combine it with the dentin layer under it to create an impression of your natural teeth color. Your genes may affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel with a thinner one allowing the dentin color to show through. Enamel’s roughness and smoothness also affect light reflection.
Studies on teeth say that every day, a thin coating forms on the enamel that picks up stains. Pores on the enamel as well have the ability to hold on to stains. Some of the common reasons for yellow and stained teeth include tobacco, dark-colored liquids like cola, tea, coffee, and red wine. Lack of oral hygiene is also a cause of yellow and stained teeth.
Aging has also been proven to make teeth less bright with the enamel becoming less bright, exposing the darker dentin.
Stains inside the tooth is another cause. Intrinsic stains can be caused by a child’s exposure to too much fluoride during development. Trauma has also been proven to cause stains in addition to other dental problems
Teeth Whitening Preparation
Dental problems like cavities need treatment before the teeth whitening procedure. Teeth whitening targets even the inner parts of the tooth. Whitening may not do much when your tooth’s roots are discolored. In fact, it may make the problem worse by making the teeth sensitive.
The dentist first takes photos of your teeth. It helps him examine your teeth and find the best way to arrive at the expected results. During this period, the dentist will ask for additional information as to the causes of your discolored teeth.
The dentist will then begin by cleaning your teeth. He removes the film of bacteria and food substances causing staining that has built up on your teeth. As for the actual whitening, you may choose home whitening or in-office whitening.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
In-office teeth whitening is the most common treatment. It involves using a whitening gel that is applied directly on the tooth surface. An additional, specialized light or laser is used by the dentist to make the bleaching faster.
Teeth whitening offers patients an opportunity to quickly enhance their smile. As mentioned, the procedure lasts about an hour and removes up to 8 shades of tooth discoloration.
