What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Generally speaking, there are two types of teeth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.
Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of teeth in the outermost layers of enamel. These types of stains are usually caused by dark-colored foods and drinks, tobacco use, or poor oral hygiene. While extrinsic stains can sometimes be removed with whitening toothpaste or a dental cleaning, they respond very well to professional teeth whitening treatments like our take-home kids.
On the other hand, intrinsic stains occur much deeper in the enamel. These are much more difficult to lighten, as the staining particles have penetrated the enamel and reached the underlying layer called the dentin. Intrinsic stains may be the result of overexposure to fluoride in childhood or the antibiotic tetracycline. Thankfully, while intrinsic stains are stubborn to remove, our professional-grade products can typically erase them from your smile
How Does At-Home Teeth Whitening Work?
If Dr. Owens agrees that you’re a good candidate for at-home teeth whitening, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create custom whitening trays. We’ll show you how to use them properly, answer any questions you may have, then send you home with your trays and personalized doses of professional whitening gel.
Once a day, you’ll fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them for a set amount of time. You can do this whenever is most convenient for you, like while watching TV at the end of the day or doing chores. You’ll begin to see results within a few days, and after about two weeks of this routine, you’ll have a dazzling smile that you’ll be proud to show off!
How Do I Keep My Smile Bright After Teeth Whitening?
With the right care, the results of your at-home teeth whitening can last for a very long time. Make sure you keep your pearly whites sparkling for as long as possible by:
- Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day
- Flossing daily and avoiding mouthwash that contains alcohol
- Refraining from using tobacco products and limiting your alcohol consumption
- Reducing the amount of dark-colored foods and drinks you consume
- Visiting us twice a year for routine checkups and cleanings
