While there are endless over the counter options for teeth whitening, professional teeth whitening is designed to protect the soft tissues while yielding a bright white smile in about just one hour.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration
Tooth discoloration is common as patients age, yellow or brown teeth can be embarrassing making the smile look prematurely aged or unattractive. Discolored teeth can be caused by injury, medication use, or diet.
Yellow teeth are often the result of enamel erosion leaving the inner dentin of the tooth exposed. Dentin is naturally yellow and gives teeth an unattractive yellow or “dirty” appearance.
Brown or black spots on the teeth may be a result of injury or medication use. Certain medications can cause tooth discoloration that may need to be treated using alternative cosmetic treatments.
Patients may also experience bright white spots on the teeth. White spots are typically caused by an overexposure of fluoride during the development of their teeth.
