What Causes Tooth Discolouration?
There are a variety of reasons for your teeth to become discoloured over time. As we age, our enamel wears down and exposes the yellow dentin underneath. Poor oral hygiene can also lead to a buildup of yellow layer along the gum line.
Your diet can also impact the colour of your teeth. Dark pigmented food and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine are absorbed through the porous surface of your enamel to stain your teeth. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking or taking certain medications, also cause teeth to become yellow, brown, or grey.
What Whitening Options Does Your Dentist Offer?
At home whitening ‘trays’:
This involves your dentist taking an ‘impression’ of your teeth and making custom fitted trays. You will then take the trays and bleaching gel home and apply as directed by your dentist. Make sure you follow your dentists instructions as not doing so can cause damage to your teeth and gums.
Professional teeth whitening by your dentist:
Dentists are allowed to use a higher concentration of bleach than you are at home, and often offer ‘in-chair’ whitening at a dental practice. This involves painting your teeth with stronger bleach and activating it using an ultraviolet light or a laser, often with immediate results. Follow up whitening using trays at home is often recommended.
