Why Are My Teeth Discolored?
The causes of tooth discoloration and staining are varied and there is often more than one factor that affects the color of your teeth. Some of the most common causes for tooth discoloration include:
The compounds you expose your teeth to, including nicotine and tar from tobacco use or tannins from red wines and berries, can stain your teeth. This is especially true when you do not brush, floss, and rinse after use or consumption of these products.
As we age, the tough protective outer layer of your teeth, the enamel, wears down. This causes the darker-inner layer of dentin beneath to show through, often resulting in a darker appearance.
Poor oral hygiene habits result in the buildup of plaque and tartar. When left on the teeth, the acids produced can damage your enamel, resulting in darkened teeth that are more easily stained.
The thickness of enamel is variable from person to person. Some may genetically have a thicker layer of protective enamel, while others may have a thinner layer. Those with thinner enamel are more likely to experience staining and discoloration.
Medications and medical procedures can all influence the color and susceptibility of your teeth to staining. Some antibiotics, antihistamines, and chemotherapy are known to affect tooth color and stainability.
Am I A Candidate For Tooth Whitening?
Yes! Anyone who feels that their appearance and self-confidence can benefit from tooth whitening is a candidate. In-office whitening is very safe and effective. Dr. Hassan has his team go out of their way to make sure that you have the care you need and the respect and empowerment you deserve. You shouldn’t have to live with a smile you hate—or even marginally dislike—and we are dedicated to making sure you have a smile you want to show off.
Your Sugar Land, TX dentist will work with you to determine the root cause of your staining or discoloration. Determining the root cause of your discoloration will help Dr. Hassan determine the best whitening treatment for you. After your whitening procedure is complete, he will work with you to develop healthy behaviors that will prevent your discoloration or staining from returning once your whitening procedure is complete.
Why Have Your Teeth Whitened At Colony Dental?
Advertisements for DIY and at-home teeth whitening products are all over these days, so you may find yourself asking: why should I have my teeth whitened at my dentist’s office? The answer is simple. Teeth whitening at Colony Dental in Sugar Land, TX is safe, effective, and fast. Some common out-of-office whitening solutions include:
- Whitening trays: Uncomfortable and awkward, whitening trays can leave you waiting hours for a whitening solution that may or may not work.
- Whitening Strips: Whitening strips and the diluted solution they use may leave you waiting weeks before you notice minor results.
- Whitening Toothpastes: These do little more than polish your teeth.
Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing if a DIY tooth whitening program is effective or safe because ultimately it may or may not address the root cause of your discoloration. Additionally, you don’t want to risk your health and the health of your teeth by over-exposing them to harsh chemicals. In-office whitening allows for rapid and substantial changes to the appearance of your teeth in a safe, controlled environment. Dr. Hassan and his team are ready to help you achieve the brilliantly white smile you’ve always wanted.
