Why Are My Teeth Yellow Even Though I Brush Frequently?
Brushing your teeth helps lessen the amount of discoloration your teeth can endure, but you need more help to keep a pearly white smile. Teeth discoloration can have more than one cause. It can be age-related, intrinsic, or extrinsic discoloration.
- Teeth Discoloration as We Age: It is natural for your teeth to become slightly yellow as you age, since the enamel wears out and the yellowish dentin underneath starts to show through.
- Extrinsic Stains: These are stains that affect the teeth surface and are caused by smoking or eating and drinking staining substances like coffee and cola drinks.
- Intrinsic Discoloration: These are stains under the surface of the teeth that can be caused by excessive use of fluoride or damage to the tooth due to accidents or certain medications.
Does Whitening Damage Teeth?
When done correctly, whitening doesn’t damage your teeth. Under the supervision of Igal Leizerovich, DDS, teeth whitening is a controlled process. The frequency of use and concentration of the professional whitening gel are administered in a way that is entirely safe as long as you comply with treatment instructions.
Which Teeth Whitening Methods You Offer?
At Elite Dentistry, we offer take-home teeth whitening kits. In addition to being very effective, these kits are also a flexible method that lets you whiten at your own pace and makes it easy to touch up every few months to maintain your sparkling smile.
How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?
To start the whitening process, you need to visit our practice twice. During the first visit, Dr. Leizerovich will take impressions of your teeth to create your custom trays.
The second appointment is essential to make sure your trays are well adjusted to fit your teeth perfectly. Along with your perfectly fitted trays, we will also provide you with professional high-concentration whitening gel. Use your trays to distribute the whitening solution evenly across your entire smile.
You can wear your whitening trays at home, in your office, or anywhere you feel comfortable. However, you need to follow the instructions we provide on how to properly use your trays for safe and effective at-home whitening. We also recommend you keep your bi-annual appointments for cleanings and examinations to help keep your smile healthy and white.
How Long Does Whitening Last?
Whitening is not permanent. However, it can last long depending on the amount of care you are willing to give your teeth. Post-whitening, you need to be diligent with your brushing and flossing, as well as do a few touch-ups when needed. We also recommend you avoid smoking and lessen your smile’s exposure to stain-causing foods and beverages.
Which Whitening Method is Right for Me? Whitening Trays or Over-The-Counter?
We recommend professional whitening over any other type. Professional take-home trays are only available through a dental professional. They are designed to be safe, convenient for use everywhere, and give great results in a short time.
Over-the-counter whitening products, though convenient, are unsupervised products containing chemicals that are not professional grade solutions and the trays do not provide an even distribution of whitening gel.
How Long Does It Take to Achieve Results?
Time taken to achieve results varies from one person to another. It depends on the severity of your tooth discoloration and your desired level of brightness. Keep in mind that the whitening gel doesn’t change the color of your teeth. Instead, it removes stains to reveal your natural enamel color.
For most people, this produces a bright and natural-looking smile. If professional teeth whitening still won’t deliver the look you’re longing for, Dr. Leizerovich will discuss other cosmetic options with you, such as bonding or veneers.
